20 Things to do for Creative People Stuck at Home!

Hello my Darling Readers!

I hope you all are well and healthy and living yo’ best life! This Covid-19 thing is a doozy, but we are in it together and will come out 100% stronger! Woo!

In light of everything, the struggle for me (and I’m sure alot of ya’ll too) is staying home or, if your stay-at-home- order has lifted just like in my state, having limited things to do outside your house. Only a few stores are open and you can’t really sit in a restaurant or coffee shop like we used to. I miss the movie theatre something terrible right now to be honest.

Where does this leave us? To imagination of course! We’re artsy-fartsy, creative people that can think outside of the box ! There was a point in time where people didn’t have all of the awesome luxuries we do, so they relied on their imagination and ingenuity to entertain themselves. So, without further ado, here’s the list of 20 creative things to do at home!

  1. Act out a scene from your favorite movie.
  2. Start a podcast!
  3. Record an audiobook version of your favorite book.
  4. Paint a self-portrait in the style of Pablo Picasso.
  5. Take still-life shots of things around your house.
  6. Choreograph a dance to a song you wouldn’t normally dance to.
  7. Learn a dance from your favorite music video.
  8. Watched a shitty movie? Cool, rewrite the script.
  9. Follow up to #8, write fanfiction of a film you saw ( I might rewrite the end of The Return of Skywalker, just sayin’)
  10. Compose a really stupid but seriously catchy pop song!
  11. Write poetry about your pets. No pets? Family, then. Live alone? Write poetry about your hair or lack there of.
  12. Teach yourself how to cartwheel or handstand.
  13. Finger painting!!
  14. Set the scene and take photos of yourself like Cindy Sherman.
  15. Try doing SFX makeup on yourself! You’d be surprised the masterpieces you can create with paint, latex, and tin foil.
  16. Learn how to grow herbs in glass jars.
  17. Repaint a piece of furniture.
  18. Redecorate your room or house.
  19. Film a one person version of a scene from your favorite movie (RIP dubsmash)
  20. And finally, use contact paper to turn a boring window into a stained glass masterpiece.

That’s all I got for today folks. What do you think? Have you done any of these? I really want to try take Cindy Sherman style portraits. Like super bad. I’ll post on my Instagram if I do. 🙂
