Can't think of doing anything this summer? That after waiting for months for a supposedly fun season to come, you’re instead stuck indoors, bored out of your mind? Then this 5-point article guides you through some fun, summer activities you can do while you’re at home. So keep reading to find out how you can make this break the best one yet! 

Play Board Games

Playing your favorite board games is an excellent way to have fun this summer. As you put down your phone and do something that’s both thrilling and mind-boggling, playing board games helps you to reconnect with people around you and relive some childhood memories or try something new. 
If you don’t have any board games, they’re relatively affordable. Going for as low as P200 and as high as P1,500, there are tons of board games for all budgets and personal interests. So visit your nearest department store today and find one that best suits you.

Start a Garden

Starting a garden sends you into a peaceful, zen-like trance to help you beat the heat. By doing this fun activity, you reconnect with nature as you start growing beautiful, green creations. Proven to relax the mind and give you a sense of accomplishment, starting a garden is an absolute must-try activity this summer! 
With seeds and the variety of planting tools/accessories being relatively affordable, you can easily start a beautiful, sprawling garden! Just remember that each plant has its own way of growing, so be careful in handling each one.

Make Popsicle Sticks 

A delicious, frosty popsicle stick is the ultimate way to chill out as things get too hot. A popsicle stick can be made for all budgets and flavours, so you can get as experimental and creative with your frosty dessert.
Your popsicle can be made from fruit shakes or milkshakes, juices and much more! Afterwards, place them on a special container and stick a wooden popsicle and chill over a few hours or overnight and they’ll be ready for your consumption the next day.

Discover a New Skill

Discovering a new skill is an excellent way to be productive during the summer. Since you currently have some free time on your hands, try out the things you’ve been meaning to do during school or work.
Fun new skills include creative writing, illustration, sewing and so much more! So make the most out of your free time by visiting YouTube, blogs and online courses to develop your skills today.

Talk to Your Friends

Talking to your friends has never been easier thanks to technology! With apps like Zoom and Messenger readily available to you, you can have fun conversations with your pals as if they’re right there in front of you.

So set a date, ready the aforementioned apps, and start reconnecting with your pals this hot summer season.
