How to make the most of stay at home activities during Covid


The rising death toll due to Covid-19, the coronavirus, has had a significant impact globally in a manner that was unanticipated. With the increasing spread of the virus, Covid-19 has been declared as a pandemic worldwide. At the time of writing, over more than 230000 cases have been reported, and around 9000 deaths are recorded. Many health experts aver that the worst is yet to come and that the next few months will be crucial. Tsunami-like transmission of the virus across the world can have catastrophic effects. Therefore, it is the need of the hour to enforce draconian quarantine measures and effective testing protocols.


 With this outbreak gaining steam in India, governments around the country are shutting down schools, colleges, offices, bars, restaurants to prevent mass gatherings. To keep you safe during this pandemic, many of you may be facing hours, days, and weeks at home. At this period of staying at home, keep yourselves busy doing activities that will indulge you in doing something creative rather than sitting the whole day idle in front of your digital devices. Do things that will make you happy, stress-free, and creative.


Here we have come up with ways to entertain yourselves at home during this pandemic.

There are a lot of ways to learn while having fun at home.


  • Make your home a gymnasium- As most of the aerobics and gyms have been shut, but this doesn't mean that you must compromise with your body and health. There are some natural props you can use to make your calories burn. Set the music and dance. This is a form of aerobic.


  • Kitchen activities-Everyone in the house will need to eat, so why don't you turn your kitchen into an innovative and interactive lab of feeding? At breakfast, let your little ones break the eggs and tell them to whip it up. Show them cooking techniques. Dissect apples, kiwis, bananas, pineapple, strawberries, and discuss different parts of the fruit with your kids and finally serve it to the family members to keep everyone hale and hearty.
