Things You & Family Should Do During Quarantine | Lock Down

With health and government officials urging people to stay home as much as possible in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, We all aware that quarantine has become a necessary part of daily routines due to the spread of coronavirus COVID-19. As concerts are postponed, sporting events are cancelled, schools are closed and tourist hot spots are shut down, experts recommend that even those who show no sign of illness stay home during this time of the global pandemic.

Unlike medical workers, those that work in retail, delivery, specific manufacture or other. At the moment, people are not living their dream life. People are not used to being idle and are looking for ways to pass the time during this time when they are practising social distancing and self-isolation. While this is a moment filled with anxiety and uncertainty, Prime Safaris & Tours Ltd has tried all the unbeaten paths to help you seek joy, comfort and distraction wherever you find it. For guidance on where to start, look no further than our list below, where we’ve rounded up the best activities and entertainment to keep you busy while staying at home.

What’s there to do while indoors during this lockdown?

We’ve compiled suggestions to help make your time quarantined as interesting and perhaps even as productive as possible.


Rest for obvious reasons. Sleep late. Take naps. During your work period, you were daydreaming about this most of the time. You owe it to yourself. If you don’t do enough of it, don’t regret when things get back to normal.

If you’re quarantined because you were diagnosed with COVID-19, you’re waiting for results or came from concerned areas then the rest is prior to you. Sleep, wash your hands, avoid contact, eat fruits and veggies or take your vitamins in any other form and all other recommendations I’m sure you heard by now.

Bond with family

Spend time with your family. They might have really missed you and you never know, they might be pretty nice people.

Board games

If you’re quarantined with your family, friends or roommates then board games are a great way to connect. It wise you spend this quality time together. Try out all the interesting board games like;

  • Ludo
  • Snakes and Ladders
  • Settlers of Catan.
  • Ticket to Ride.

If you are staying alone, you can complete a puzzle: The more pieces the better! Feeling extra smart? Take on a Rubik’s Cube. Are you more of a word person? Try out a Crossword puzzle!

Online games

This is the time to make use of our phones, Yes! Be like the kid who asks you if you have games on your phone. Download those you are interested in, spend unholy time playing them. You won’t even notice there is a pandemic outside. If you own some sort of video game, play it.

Keep the kids entertained 

Kids are hard to get in one place once they are bored. Are you looking for something to keep them occupied while you try to work or accomplish a few things around the house? Go online, visit great websites which provide a variety of activity worksheets, puzzles for kids, colouring sheets so that you keep them entertained. This will give you room to do the rest of your house chores in peace as well as tick a few things off your todo list!

Set up a home movie theatre

Movie theatres around the country are closed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still get your cinematic fix. At-home movie projectors have gotten a lot smaller and less expensive in recent years, allowing you to project a new release or family-friendly classic on any blank wall. Pop up some popcorn, set up the pillows, and let them enjoy the show!

Plant a container garden

Just because you have to stay indoors doesn’t mean you can’t start gardening. Begin a container garden together with your kids using seeds you can easily access. Plant things like;

  • Beans
  • Broccoli
  • carrots
  • cucumbers
  • egg plants
  • lettuce
  • onions
  • pepper

Read a book with the young ones in your life

While being inside all day might make kids antsy, it’s a great opportunity to spend some quality time reading together whether you’re isolating under one roof or together virtually. Look no further than TIME’s guides to the best 100 books for both children and young adults.

Make a face masks

In my country, it has been advised that we wear face masks so we protect our nose and mouth from getting the virus. There are plenty of tutorials online on how to make a face mask yourself. Try these tutorials with your kids too so they learn some skills during quarantine. So If you wish to kill time and appreciate the simple things in life try making a face mask.


Meditation is one of the best things you can do right now to relieve stress and improve your wellbeing. You may have been troubled If you’re like the rest of us, you sit down, try to “quiet” your mind… and then say “Well, now what?” Download apps that walk you through meditation and mindfulness. Enjoy unlimited access to their expert-created mindfulness meditations, life coaching, inspiring stories, and music.

Fortify your immune system with green juice

Whipping up a produce-packed smoothie or a green juice may be too much work on a normal morning but what is normal anymore? These days it’s more important than ever to support your immune system and your waistline with plenty of fresh or frozen fruits and veggies.

Upgrade your old clothes with tie-dyeing

Tie-dyeing isn’t just for kids or people who never outgrew the ’70s. It’s a versatile art form that is fun and easy to do. Upgrade a T-shirt, pair of leggings, baby onesie, hat or any other cotton item. Be your own designer in your own wardrobe.

Stretch and strengthen with yoga

There are many high-definition yoga videos for free during the pandemic. They have classes ranging from stress-relieving breathing exercises to popular yoga poses to regular flows. You don’t need any prior experience (or flexibility!) in the yoga classes. Try it out and your body will thank you for doing yoga!

Create some quarantine art

Channel your feelings by doing something creative. Painting is a great way to express yourself, learn a new skill, and help you see ordinary things. Draw those things in your house you’ve been staring at for weeks in a whole new way.

Ladies! Get your feet sandal-ready

Eventually, you’re going to be able to leave your house and when you do it will likely be warm enough for sandals. Keep your feet from looking like they were quarantined with a werewolf by doing a little prep work now. Use a foot soak to soften everything, push back your cuticles and trim your nails, paint your nails, pluck any rogue toe-hairs, and—this is the best part buff the dead skin off your heels.

Perfect your make up

Drawing a smooth even cat eye with liquid eyeliner is some advanced makeup skills. Then, once you figure it out, you have to replicate it exactly on the other eye! Nobody has time for that on a busy morning rushing out the door for work—but now that you’re only commuting to your bedroom you have plenty of time to experiment.

Get creative in the kitchen and cook

Cue the resurgence of cooking and baking as two of the most tried-and-true activities for not only keeping busy, but also learning valuable life skills. For complete amateurs, there are sites like Simply cook that’s gonna send you the recipe boxes with step by step to becoming a decent cook. You can find plenty of great recipes at topsecret recipes as well.

Clean your house

Spring clean your quarantine mansion. It should take you at least one quarantine day if you ought to do it properly. It should feel like a fresh start and once we all finally overcome this whole pandemic we would definitely need a fresh start.

Rearrange your home

Remember when you were a kid and all you wanted to do, was to rearrange the furniture in your room. Then you actually did it and called your family to take a look and everyone would applaud on your designer’s talent.


Gyms are closed so no one is going to see you sweat your ass off and breathe heavily in your shallow attempts of exercising, but you. Let’s get out of this pandemic jacked as hell, which is gonna be super hard with all of those snacks just sitting in your drawer right?

Download some free apps to help you get fit.

Make YouTube your friend

This thing is an endless hole of entertainment. Look out for your best moments of this or that. Top funny cats or dogs. Conspiracy theories. Bloopers. Challenges. Best ticktok. Best Vines. Live shows. Crash courses. Literally anything you can think of. How could you even be bored with YouTube?

Stalk people

You have so much time to actually dig deep into the stalking world and it’s so easy to lost track of time while finding out what your kindergarten sweetheart is up to these days. Be careful and don’t let people find out you do stalk them.

Learn to embroider

All you need is some textiles, needle, thread and a lot of time and will to stab something repeatedly.
