50 Wacky, Offbeat Things to do During Quarantine

Dave, Writer

Are you bored out of your mind sitting at home all day? Me too!!! Here are some weird activities that you never thought to do, because you never had the TIME to do!!! These are also ideas that can freak out your siblings and make your parents concerned for you.  Here’s my list, and just like with Jazmine’s list in the other article, you can add to this one by using the comments feature at the bottom of the story.  Hope to see many more fun suggestions!

 

  1. Count the number of times birds fly into your windows. 
  2. Count all the buttons on every single pair of clothes you have.
  3. Count how many steps it takes to walk to the nearest store.
  4. Learn how to make toilet paper. 
  5. Memorize a part from a play for no reason at all!
  6. Watch all the Marvel movies or all the Star Wars movies, because you have time to do that now!
  7. Write an insanely long book and make your parents read it. 
  8. Read an insanely long book and make your parents read it.
  9. Make a list of all the foods you eat during this long break and list the foods you hate, and the ones you love!
  10. Make a list of all the food you want to stockpile because WHY NOT!?!
  11. Find a lock and try to open it with no clues whatsoever.
  12. Stare at a blank wall for 10 minutes and write down what you thought about.
  13. Research all the materials you find in your clothes.
  14. Every day write down everything you saw or did that was weird.
  15. Read every book in the house and write a book report on it. Impress your teacher.
  16. Master animal sounds. For example perfect an impression of a mooing cow of gobbling turkey.
  17.  Put on all of your clothes and look at yourself in the mirror. Maybe even try parents’ clothes or siblings’s clothes.
  18. Since your vacation plans for spring break were most likely canceled, so have your vacation at home! Read a book, wear shorts, jump through the sprinkler, ANYTHING!
  19.  Try to live like people did a long time ago when they didn’t have to go to school. No electric light bulbs, TV, it would be like living the 1700s and 1800s!
  20. Wear sunglasses all day and all night. 
  21. Devote one day to learn all about one topic. Then you can annoy siblings or parents with an endless flow of facts.
  22. Pretend to be a ferocious beast the whole entire day.
  23. One day be an absolute angel, obey every command, comb your hair, say only helpful and kind things, and then the next day go back to normal. 
  24. Talk as little as you can the whole day but stay super active and make quick gestures like you’re a mouse.
  25. Every time you enter a room, enter it walking backwards.
  26. Find an old halloween costume or any costume and wear it the entire day. 
  27. Be a sheep.
  28. Give a very deep and logical answer every time somebody asks you a question. 
  29. Hide in random places for no reason at all. When somebody finds you and asks what you’re doing, give very silly answers and walk away like nothing happened. 
  30. When someone asks you a yes or no question flip a coin to answer. Heads if yes and tails if no. 
  31. Burst into song every couple of minutes. 
  32. Learn to make clothes. This is a great time to do it. Learn to sew and/or knit.
  33. Count all the sidewalk tiles on a near sidewalk. 
  34. Put on a cowboy hat and call everybody “Pardner” or “Darlin.”
  35. Move in slow motion and then quickly run around the house. Over and over again.
  36. Be an astronaut and conquer new territories (AKA parents bedroom, storage room).
  37. Criticize everything everybody is wearing or doing. Be very proper and perfect about everything.
  38. Pretend to be very sick and have to stay in bed or you’ll die, and have your parents fuss over you. 
  39. Be an inspector, dress up nice, grab a magnifying glass and start looking at the whole house very closely.
  40. Crawl on all fours all day.
  41. Be a dog and every time you see something a dog would bark at, you bark at too. 
  42. Every time you fetch something for someone, stand there like you’re supposed to be given a tip.
  43. Say you must be addressed by your name and something about you that’s great. It does not have to be true. Examples: Dave the Genius, Dave the Inspiring, Dave the Bold, Dave the Great, Dave the Handsome; those are all true of course. They totally are, heh, cough,heh.
  44. Be super stoked or super depressed about everything.
  45. Pretend you are made of glass and are very fragile. Don’t let anybody touch you for the whole day, or else you will be shattered.
  46.  Walk around as much of the day as you can with your eyes closed.
  47. Every morning wake up early and get your backpack on like you’re going to school. Eventually your parents will get tired of telling you that there is no school.
  48. Pretend you have amnesia for a day. Pretend you don’t know you’re parents, where you are, or what doorknobs are.
  49. Say “yes my lord” or “as you wish, madam/sir.” Trust me on this one, your parents will hate it. I did it myself.
  50. State that you are supreme dictator of the world and everyone must do as you say.
