Unique Social-Distancing Activities

Unique Social-Distancing Activities

Here are some cool, out-of-the-box things to do while you are self-quarantining and social distancing. 

Take a Free Ivy League Course

This website is offering over 450 free online courses from Computer Science to Engineering. The courses are from schools such as Brown, Harvard, Cornell, Princeton, Dartmouth, Yale, and Columbia Universities, and the University of Pennsylvania.

Take some time to take a class on something you have always wanted to learn but never had time for!

Learn How to Make Your Favorite Cocktail 

Master the art of your favorite cocktail. Next time you are stocking up, get the needed ingredients, hop onto YouTube and follow along with a virtual bartender! 

Here's a video on how to make an Old Fashioned!

Workout from Home

If you're like me, staying cooped up in the house has made me a little ancy. Doing some at-home workouts have helped ease that pain. Even if you don't have weights, you can use household items like cans or boxes as weight.

PopSugar Fitness is a great resource for at-home workouts.

Tie-Dye Something

I ordered a tie-dye kit and a white sweatshirt and am having a tie-dye party with my family (the ones I'm social-distancing with). Tie-dye is super trendy right now, but people are charging a lot for it, so just DYI and have fun while doing it!

Play a Boardgame

My family and I have been really into boardgames lately, and now is the perfect time to learn some of the new ones that have been collected dust on the shelf. 

If your family likes strategy games, check out Ticket to Ride and Azul

If your family likes party games, check out Just One or Codenames Classic!

Road Trip to a National Park (Permitting Closures)

Lance, co-owner of Gravel, just took a trip with his family to Goblin Park in Utah in their Sprinter van. There are so many awesome national parks around us that have low amounts of visitors. Visit this site to look up parks around you!
