What To Do At Home: Fun Indoor Activities While In Quarantine

4_Indoor_Activities_Main_Image

As most parts of the country remain in quarantine, many of our usual means of entertainment—including our fave mall activities—still remain off the menu. This means we pretty much have no choice but to keep ourselves busy (and entertained) while confined in our homes, a feat that’s made even more challenging by having antsy kids in the household.


Can relate? To help you out, we’ve listed some suggestions on how to keep your family from going stir- crazy while stuck indoors—with the help of some entertaining finds from ShopSMThe SM Store, and Toy Kingdom. For more convenient shopping, you can call the SM Customer Care Hotline for delivery and pick-up options, or enjoy a mall-wide personal shopper through the SM Malls Online app

Here are some fun indoor activities you can enjoy with the gang at home!

Spend hours playing card games 

And we don’t mean the usual Solitaire or Pusoy Dos! If you’re part of the ARMY fandom, there’s a BTS-themed UNO card game that features images of the Korean pop group and a special “Dancing Wild” rule that’ll challenge your dance moves. Got Potterheads under your roof? There’s also a Harry Potter UNO deck featuring the iconic characters from J.K. Rowling’s magical world.

Test your wits through trivia challenges

Battle boredom by going head-to-head with your kids with brain-bending trivia games, like the Beat the Parents Board Game or the Family Feud: Kids vs. Parents Set. You can up the stakes by coming up with rewards for the winning team, like no chores for one day or yummy takeout of their choice!

Teach life skills with board games 

Anyone who’s ever played Monopoly knows it’s more than just a board game; it’s actually a good way to learn about math and how to handle money. If you’ve got young kids, there are junior versions with simpler rules and super cute characters. Meanwhile, the older ones (and the grown-ups!) will definitely get a kick out of more advanced sets, like Ultimate Banking edition.

Set up an indoor playground

You don’t really need much space for your kids to have a good time! For young ones who love to run and tumble around, a ball pit that can easily fit inside your living room or garage can mean hours of a good time. (Go for a bigger pit if the grown-ups want to jump in, too!)

DIY your own cinema experience

Miss the cinemas? No problem. Choose a room with a TV, close the curtains, and make the place as comfy as possible (think: lots of pillows, blankets, and maybe even a cozy tent!). Don’t forget to set up a snack station, too, with an assortment of chips, popcorn, and all your kids’ fave nibbles. If you want to go the extra mile, you can invest in a portable movie projector to get that cinema-like display on your wall.

Play guessing games

If you’re tired of the usual charades or Pinoy Henyo, you can level up with a high-tech version, like this Pictionary Air Game that comes with an air pen that lets you draw clues in the air, with the image being cast on your TV!
