50 activities you can do at home

Today I’m bringing you 50 activities you can do at home! This list has a mixture of activities that will keep you entertained for the foreseeable future.

Some of the activities may require you to pick up some supplies from the supermarket whilst you’re doing your weekly shop, but a lot of them involve things you will already have at home or nothing at all!

Ideas for how to pick an activity

You could work through the list, ticking them off one by one.

Pick an activity at random by selecting a number between 1 and 50 (or drawing numbers out of a hat/bowl or asking Alexa to pick).

If you live in a house with several people, take it in turns picking an activity.
