Fun things to do at home for parents
Make breakfast for two
Make the most out your morning by having breakfast for two before the kids wake up or prior to working from home.
Maybe you can surprise your partner with breakfast in bed.
Eat Take-Out By Candlelight.
This can be another idea to spend time together and support small businesses, adding a candle can make it a romantic dinner.
Have a Picnic outside in the backyard, balcony or porch if possible
It might seem a bit simple, but eating your favorite snacks on a blanket can be a novelty if you bring the right energy.
It’s always nice to get some fresh air. Lay a blanket in your backyard or balcony and have dinner or dessert around sunset time so you can lay under the stars afterwards.
Have a movie night
Spending more time at home means both of you can get around to watching the movies you always said you would. Take turns picking your favorite movie or TV show and enjoy with popcorn.
Take a Bubble Bath, Day Spa at home
Grab your favorite book and a glass of wine, put down the phone and throw in your favorite bath oils, salts or essences.
It’s now easier than ever to recreate a relaxing spa experience in your home. A scented candle, face packs, a little massage oil, plus some relaxing music from your preferred streaming service and you’re away.
Make an Adventure List.
Talk about the places you want to see and go in the next 2 years. Big or small. Make a bucket list of sorts. That way, when you are bored and have a day when you are able to get out and do something or you have a surprise vacation week, you know what to do with it and you will waste no time!
Look Through Old Photos.
Get out that dusty box of photos and look through them together. It’s fun to look through awesome old memories, reminisce and tell each other stories about each photo that makes you laugh.
Virtual tour museums, attractions, and world wonders
Many museums, art centers, theatres, and attractions have free virtual tours for you to explore.
Challenge Cook Off with random pantry ingredients
This game can be so much fun! If you have a few random cupboard supplies to spare, blindly select your ingredients and assign a time limit on each other to make something edible.
Have a Karaoke Night
You can look up karaoke versions of songs on YouTube. This stay at home date idea is a great endorphin booster too which is always great and definitely needed right now!
Now’s the time to find your Zen. Make it happen with yoga poses that are suitable for couples.
Play a Board Game or Cards
Playing a board game or cards could be a fun way to entertain yourselves. Give the TV a break and reconnect over a board game. This is a perfect opportunity to talk and get in some much-needed laughter.
