Luckily, companies have been extra innovative during these socially distanced times and have concocted some fun ways to mix things up at home.

These kits and activities could also make for great gifts as we head into the holiday season. (Hint, hint!)
So if you’ve found yourself asking what to do tonight, this weekend, or anytime, check out these 4 activities to mix things up and try something new!
Bring the experience of a blind wine tasting into your very own home with Argaux’s blind tasting kit. Experience new wines and follow along with their how-to guide so you can get the full blind tasting experience. Try this out for your next at-home date night, or virtually gather with friends on video conference and enjoy a virtual tasting! Argaux even provides an option so you can send kits to multiple addresses, making it a piece of cake to enjoy with friends around the world. Cheers!
You are missing your gym more than ever and finding it hard to motivate yourself into working out at home. Enter: My Workout Party! They host virtual workout sessions that make you feel like you’re in an energetic studio class, all from the comfort of your own home! The workouts are fun and fast paced but easy for all skill levels, and all you’ll need is some floor space, 2lb. weights, and some dancing moves. Book one of their classes to join in, or gather your usual workout buddies and host a private workout party.
If you’re missing your usual weekly trivia night with friends at your local bar, this at-home game night alternative could be your new weekly tradition! Believe me when I tell you this is the most fun you will have playing bingo with friends and family, even when you can’t physically be with them in the same place. Host an event with your BFFs, your office buddies you’ve only seen over Zoom meetings, or whoever else. They can even do theme nights to make it extra exciting.
Bring the fun of a pottery class home with one of Crockd’s DIY pottery kits! Their kits come with everything you need to make your own clay and create your own ceramic artwork without stepping outside. Each set comes with clay, carving tools, instructions, and “clay breakers” to help you have fun with your friends or family while you’re crafting. The O.G. kits require you to bring your finished creation to a kiln, but you can also get the “no kiln required” kit (just remember that you won’t be able to use those pieces for food!).
