Here are some ideas you can do at home without looking at a computer:

  1. Make a scavenger/treasure hunt for a sibling or family member
  2. Go on an Alphabet scavenger hunt in your house. 
  3. Read a book you have been meaning to read on your bookshelf
  4. Listen to audiobooks (I recommend listening to audiobooks while you clean)
  5. Help out with yard work, planting or gardening
  6. Try cooking or baking something with ingredients you already have on hand
  7. Journal your experience staying at home
  8. Have a dance party in your living room
  9. Play a card game or a board game
  10. Draw, color or sketch
