Fun things to do at home

I've been housebound for a while. I'm not bored, I enjoy reading, listening to music, the usual home entertainment. However, I've been thinking about how I could  experience more of what can't be done at home by definition. Things like recreating the northern lights or having a llama visit.  :)  Any creative ideas? What would you do?

    Interesting topic @MissMarple

    I don't have any particularly creative ideas off the top of my head, but I'll definitely have a think :) 

    We used to do indoor picnics when we were young and couldn't get outside, which I always enjoyed. I also used to have some glow in the dark stars on my ceiling, so I could pretend I was stargazing when it got dark. 

    Maybe you could also try building some of the 7 wonders of the world? Or working out a recipe for something that's on a Michelin starred restaurant's menu? 

    I think having some animals to visit is a great idea, as is recreating the northern lights.

    Ha, when you said have a llama visit I was thinking Buddhist monk.

    how about building the seven wonders of the world using glued matchsticks? Or any building really, it’s fun. I built a cottage type log cabin like this and used dried Leylandi for the thatched roof. 

    I once also made a small mould to make plaster bricks in and built castles for the children, also fun.

    i also made my own board game once too, easier than you might think 🤔 

    If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments.

    Thanks for the ideas. Your mentioning the kids gave me the idea to check out children's kits for inspiration. I've seen things like chemistry lab or build/make your own X.

    Homemade Michelin starred dinner sounds good @Tori_Scope :)

    Maybe not fun but productive: something I do if I am bored is take a drawer or storage basket and empty it out. You are sure to either find things to throw away, making space, or find something useful that you didn’t know you had :)
