After 6 months of the COVID-19 pandemic most of us are pretty bored with the idea of staying home on a screen, and with the likelihood that we will still be spending more periods of time at home means we need to prepare more activities for our families to enjoy together! We have assembled a few activities that you can do without a screen of any kind!
While other card games like Go-Fish and Speed exist, they usually lose their entertainment value after a few games—but with UNO things will get very competitive, very quick! This game is great to play with bigger group of people and you will easily lose track of time with this game! I’m sure if you remembered playing UNO as a child just now, you probably smiled thinking about it!
While the game of Cricket does not come from this side of the Atlantic, it is a very fun and versatile sport that can be played almost anywhere—which is probably why it’s such a popular sport around the world! If you have a yard—even a smaller sized yard you can play this with just two people, a bat, ball, and a trashcan used for the goal! Rules are online and very easy to pick up—give it a go and see if you can make it playing for the backyard cricket league!
There is a good reason why this is one of the most popular boardgames of all time, and once you start buying up property on Atlantic Avenue you realize why! There are many versions of Monopoly that you can purchase if you wanted something different, or if you are feeling up to some arts and crafts with your family you can create your own themed board and game pieces together! Making your own board can be just as fun as the game itself!
With months of us staring at phone/computer screens under our belts, it is refreshing to have a change of pace! Also, remember that all of these games you can find and print out a royalty-free version online and make your own pieces if you don’t have access to these games!
