20+ Things to Do While Self-Quarantined

Thanks to COVID-19, chances are you're self-quarantined right about now. *cue the screaming.* At the start, I couldn't stop talking about all the stuff I was going to be able to get done while stuck at home. Deep-cleaning! An awesome homeschool program! Read classic books! I had visions of organized rooms, limited screen time, and productive fun. Let me tell you guys, this did not happen.

Instead, the first few days of self-quarantine were marked by too much Netflix, burning hatred for the confines of my room, and complete and total boredom. I'm not alone here, right?

Lucky for you, I have the solution! Especially if you have kids in the house, chances are you need to do something to keep from going stir-crazy. I've put together a list of over 20 things to keep you busy during self-quarantine! What to watch, cook, listen to, and some super fun activities for the whole family. Enjoy!


Self-quarantine is the perfect time to get in the kitchen! Try recipes you've never had to make, finally get on track with your fitness goals, or make a sweet treat the family will love.

  1. Grind up your Oreos and create the best dip of your life with homemade cookie butter. (Seriously, my family is obsessed with this! Dip strawberries, pretzel chips, or graham crackers.)

  2. Opt for a healthier breakfast and make yourself an Oatmeal and Berries smoothie.

  3. Looking for something sweet but don't want to pack on the calories? Pinch of Yum's cookie dough energy bites are quick, healthy, and deceptively delicious.

  4. Get the fam involved and try out some no-churn lemon ice cream!

  5. Try your hand at making your own rock candy. It's simple, with ingredients you probably already have, and kids will love seeing the magic!
