50 of 100 Fun Summer Activities Indoors Edition

50 out of 100 fun summer activities - indoors edition

1. Take a relaxing virtual vacation!

In 2020, so many of people’s favorite vacation destinations went online since travel was restricted. For example, always wanted to visit Australia? Check out Australia 360 video and immerse yourself in a relaxing experience.

I know, I know, it doesn’t quite measure up to being there in person but it’s still fun, right?

You might be surprised where you can virtually “visit.” Just Google where you’d like to go (i.e. San Diego zoo, a certain country, aquarium, etc) and add the words “virtual tour” after it. Grab a comfy chair, sit back, and enjoy!

2. Make homemade popsicles

It’s surprisingly simple! Check out these healthy homemade popsicle recipes for inspiration.

3. Update your home

Feeling like your house is missing the coziness of home? No better time than the present to make a change that reflects the new and improved you.

Take a Udemy course on decluttering, find the perfect color palette for a design redo, or even just rearrange the space to make it feel new.

Give away the items you no longer need for an extra mental health boost! It feels good to do good!

4. Do a mid-year evaluation

At the start of summer, we are halfway through the year! Can you believe it? Take a look at your goals. What have you achieved and what would you still like to do? What has worked for you this year and what hasn’t?

Failure isn’t bad – it’s just a road sign pointing in a different direction.

Evaluating yourself and your achievements is not about judging yourself. Be gentle but honest. Find out what you’ve done well and where you can improve. Growth is good; we should all aim for more of that!

Ask yourself this question: Is what I’m doing today getting me closer to where I’d like to be tomorrow, next month, next year, etc? If the answer is no – change your habits, patterns, perspectives, and actions until you find your yes.

5. Go cold brew

Hey, maybe even try a cold brew coffee while you’re working on your mid-year evaluation? 🙂

In all seriousness, if I have an addiction, it’s to my iced coffee. I’ve discovered the perfect blend of cinnamon vanilla Stevia, sugar free/dairy free Oat & Coconut milk half and half. Mmm Mmm Good!

These 9 health benefits of going cold brew speak for themselves! How will you do your brew?

Side note: We’ve been drinking Grounds for Change coffee for a couple of years now and LOVE it! Go take a look at their organic, fair-trade, carbon-free blends. Absolutely delicious!

6. Try a thrift store transformation

Hey! How ’bout we head out with our cold brew coffee in hand to the thrift store? People donate all kinds of amazing items that can be given new life.

Many of these items are built far superior to what can be bought today.

Challenge your creativity by finding a neat item at your local thrift store and using it to make something to solve a need in your home. Best of all? It’s just your style!

Take a look at these ideas for inspiration!

7. Turn Dollar Tree bakeware into something beautiful

You are going to love this idea! Turn Dollar Tree pie pans or cookie sheets into something fun and useful for your home.

Take a look at this video for all the neat things you can create for less than $5!

8. Do arts and crafts with your kids or by yourself

It’s amazing what we can create with our imaginations and our hands, isn’t it?

If you love DIY’s & Crafts, you won’t want to miss my friend Michelle’s posts over at Blessings By Me.

She is well-loved for her brilliant (and adorable!) easy-to-follow tutorials for Dollar Tree DIY’s and so much more!

Here are the DIY’s & Crafts she’s been teaching us how to make!

9. Put together a puzzle

In our home, we really enjoy these! There are so many different varieties and varying difficulty levels too!

Natalie and her twin sister Nicole began an inspirational business called, “Peace by Piece Puzzles,” after discovering the inner healing benefits each piece can bring to us. Each of their puzzles tell a story of hope, love, and encouragement. Please support them if you can on their admirable journey!

Jigsaw puzzles are also available on the App Store of your phone or find some fun designs online.

10. Discover the road less traveled

Think you really know your area? Think again! Find some backroads you’ve never traveled before and just get lost on a relaxing drive. You might be surprised what beautiful scenery you’ll find!

Don’t forget to take your camera so you can save the memory!

11. Visit museums or indoor aquariums

Some of my favorite memories have been at indoor aquariums! Museums and aquariums are great fun for adults and kids alike. Best of all, on hot Summer days – the A/C is usually feelin’ good!

It’s a great opportunity to learn something new and have fun while you’re doing it!

12. Try a new food

Whether you are dining out or in – trying a new food can be a lot of fun! My hubby and I frequently find new recipes that seem interesting and give them a go! Sometimes it works out deliciously and other times it’s a “we won’t cook this again” kind of moment.

Part of the fun is just making a new memory, enjoying the process of cooking or baking, and learning something new!

What will you try next?

13. Have a jam fest

Want to learn an instrument? Or do you already know how to play one and have friends that do too? Get together in person (or even on Zoom!) and share the love of music.

14. Learn about natural living

One of our passions is learning more about natural living and using essential oils to help heal our bodies God’s way.

We purchase our oils from Plant Therapy and have been very pleased with their quality, affordability, and selection!

They always have so many great ideas to share and they send you a free custom oil for your birthday!

15. Make costumes for pets & people

For me, cats in costumes are impossible to resist! Just so darn cute! The fun doesn’t stop there though.

Take a look at these fun projects:

16. Hide the penny game for kids

When my husband was growing up, he and his siblings made up a game called, “Hide the Penny.”

If you’ve ever heard of hide and go seek, you’ve got the idea already! One of them would hide the penny in the house and whoever found it, won that round.

It’s a simple game to keep boredom at bay and do something other than sitting still on electronics too! If you want, make it even more fun by setting up a rewards system. I’ll leave that to your imagination. 🙂

17. Take a bubble bath

Add in a DIY bath soak, essential oils, or try one of these 10 relaxing homemade bubble bath recipes.

Turn off the lights, light your favorite candles, and just relax! Or…catch up on that book you’ve been wanting to read while you soak your tension away.

18. Find a houseplant you love & learn

Houseplants are a perfect way to clean the air in your home, bring some of the outdoors in, and just make your house feel more alive (because it is!).

Find a houseplant you love the look of and learn more about what it needs. Or, decide which room you’d like to add a plant to and find a plant that will work well in those conditions. (i.e. how much light, humid or dry, etc)

19. Cross off your Christmas giving list

Don’t wait until last minute! Not only are the prices higher but so are your stress levels!

Download a free browser extension like Honey and save some serious cash! Honey will search for and automatically apply coupons to your checkout process online, no matter where you’re shopping.

How’s that for smart shopping online?

20. Sing karaoke

I have had some serious fun over the years singing karaoke! You don’t need to be a good singer, either. It’s just a good old-fashioned way to have fun right at home!

You could go pro with a karaoke machine or an all-in-one karaoke microphone.

I’ve got a feeling this could become an addiction! What’s your song?

21. Have a technology-free day

These days, everyone is so attached to a phone, computer screen, TV, or other gadgets that in so many ways, we’ve detached from what does matter!

Go tech-free for 24 hours in your home. Listen quietly for the still small voice of God speaking to your heart, reconnect with yourself and your loved ones. Be reminded of the simple pleasures in life.

It’s just my humble opinion, but in all of our “connectedness,” we’ve never been more disconnected.

Every year on the first Friday in March, the “National Day of Unplugging,” is celebrated. But as they encourage us to do, any day is a great day to unplug from tech and plug into real living!

22. Find a pen pal

I miss the days of grabbing a pen and paper and writing a letter that goes through “snail mail.” Back in those days, I literally had around 50 pen pals to keep in touch with. We all found it therapeutic.

Global Penfriends hasn’t forgotten the joys of connecting this way. It’s a free and safe service with people of all ages and backgrounds for you to exchange letters with. You never know who’s waiting to hear from you!

23. Get creative with adult coloring projects

My dear friend Kathy was obsessed with all things adult coloring. Then I began to understand why! It is incredibly relaxing! Plus, you really get to create something amazing without needing the ability to draw!

Nowadays, there are hundreds of adult coloring options available! There’s no excuse to be stressed or bored! 😀

24. Create stunning stained glass

Sure, this one may require some skill, but if you are the handy type, take a look at these 17 DIY stained glass window plans!

If you do end up working on any of these projects, I’d love to see your before & after’s!

25. Decorate plant pots

These 24 brilliantly creative DIY flower pot re-do’s from Country Living will have you inspired in no time!

26. Read a “How-To” Manual

Is there something you’d really like to learn more about? Pick up a great how-to manual on the subject and dive in!

When you learn something new, you improve your mental health, exercise your brain, and even reduce your risk of dementia!

Besides that, your new skill just might earn you some extra income!

27. Start a podcast, channel, or blog

Have a skill, passion, experience, or opinion you’d like to share with the world? Consider starting your own blog or podcast.

Creative Blogging 101 has some great tips for new bloggers to help get you started!

Podcast Insights can help you get started with the need-to-know info of podcasting.

Cathrin Manning has great tips for those looking to start a YouTube channel.

28. Start a scrapbook

My friend Shell Vera at The Essential Creative always has amazing ideas! When she shared a scrapbook she created for a loved one, I was in awe of her creative talent. What a special way to share your heart with someone!

Here’s what she shared:

As Shell says, a scrapbook can be created any way you want. Get inspired by her post and make a scrapbook of thoughts & prayers for someone you care about.

Or, create a scrapbook filled with wishes you’d like to come true, ideas, and hopes for your future. Make it a bucket list, if you’d like. Whatever it is – just have fun with it!

29. Practice a foreign language

Practice makes perfect,” they say! Just imagine the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel when you’ve mastered that language you’ve always wanted to learn!

Rosetta Stone is a great place to start. Their award-winning programs have been helping people learn a language of their choice for over 25 years!

30. Collect and/or trade antiques

Antiques can be a lot of fun! They have so many stories to tell!

It’s best to be smart when buying ‘antiques’ though. Some things are just old and neat but not worth a dime. Talk to antique dealers near you to learn about assessing value, or read books and articles.

Once you have a good eye for value – here are some places you might find your next great buy!

Where do you sell them? Here are some helpful ideas.

31. Get funky and fit with Motown!

Combining fitness and fun is the ticket to success! Getting healthy should not be a chore!

Tiffany Moore has combined an indoor walking workout with some great Motown music! If feeling more fit is on your to-do list, don’t miss this:

32. Soak in the presence of the Lord

If you’re not familiar with it, soaking in the presence of God involves just being still while listening to soaking music and allowing Holy Spirit to minister to your heart. He restores your soul. He speaks words of hope, love, and encouragement to you.

Nothing has changed my life like just being with Jesus. Just being – not doing. Try it. He will heal and help you too.

33. Write thank you notes

Want a sweet way to show appreciation for the folks that keep us safe every day? Write thank-you notes to your local health care workers on the frontlines of the COVID fight, for your fire station, police officers, or your local soldiers.

Or, write a thank you note of appreciation to a mentor, spouse, pastor, or friend that has made a difference in your life. Tell them why you appreciate them.

Life is short, my friends. We are not promised tomorrow to say what we should say today.

34. Create a prayer journal and pray

Many times when we go through the storms of life, we forget how many times God has been faithful to answer our prayers in the past.

Keeping a prayer journal where we can write down the good and bad that’s on our hearts helps us release the burden to our Father who sees and cares.

A prayer journal is also a great way to elevate your Bible study time and get to know the heart of Jesus for you more intimately.

35. Make smoothies

What better way to celebrate Summer than to make a delicious and nutritious smoothie?

Try one of these 6 healthy superfood smoothie recipes to add powerful healing foods into your diet.

36. Clean and organize your fridge & freezer

Don’t tell me I’m the only one who needs to do this right now! 🤣 I love these stackable organizers to keep everything neat, tidy, and together.

It’s amazing how much less the refrigerator runs when it is clean and organized. That means money savings in your pocket!

37. Join “The Sofa Singers”

Set up by vocal leader James Sills as a response to global self-isolation during the Coronavirus outbreak, The Sofa Singers brings together hundreds of people in real-time for 45 minutes of simultaneous singing.”

Sounds like great fun, doesn’t it? Join up here.

38. Go to planet Mars

Ever wanted to visit Mars? Now you can! NASA’s Curiosity Rover has captured some amazing photos of what Mars is really like.

39. Have fun with your smart-speaker Alexa

Around here, we’ve been known to have great fun finding out what all Alexa can do! We love playing cat or bird sounds to get our cats on the hunt for the intruder! Their reactions are priceless!

But did you know that Alexa can play games too? That’s right! Take a look at these 21 free games you can play with Alexa!

40. Join or start a book club online

Love to read and share books with others? Consider joining Bookclubz where book lovers come together to share what they love and what they didn’t. You might discover your new favorite author!

41. Enjoy the magic of Cirque du Soleil from home

Have you ever seen Cirque du Soleil? It is truly remarkable the physical feats these performers do!

Due to Covid-19, performing live isn’t really an option. Now you can watch some of their acts for free online!

42. Make an easy resolutions list

I’ll admit to not being a fan of New Year’s resolutions. Even with dedicated people, they usually fizzle out. Our needs change through the year. Our goals fluctuate.

Make an easy resolutions list instead so you can celebrate the small wins each day. Checking off those to-do boxes feels soooo good.

You’ll be motivated to keep going and before you know it, you’ll be well on your way to achieving your big goals too!

Focus on one step at a time. This way, you won’t feel overwhelmed and discouraged before you even begin!

43. Enjoy classic Sunday comics

Did you ever grab a Sunday newspaper just to see the comics? If so, you’re not alone!

GoComics has compiled all the favorites into one place organized by title, category, or type. If you love comics, you’ll love this.

44. Teach your pet something new

This is easily one of my favorites on the list of 100 fun summer activities! It’s extremely rewarding teaching your pet a new trick.

Cats can be trained too! In our home, my baby boy Pips is learning how to fetch. It was already something he did naturally but I am teaching him to do it on command by reinforcing the behavior with treats.

Training your dog? Here are some fundamentals to remember.

45. Learn how to draw

I’m one of those people who thinks they’re really horrible at drawing. My husband on the other hand is great at it!

If you’d like to try your hand at drawing or sketching but don’t know how, here is a great video tutorial for beginners:

46. Make a DIY linen spray

You are going to love this! If you have trouble relaxing or sleeping – have you ever tried an all-natural linen spray?

I have tried this and it works wonders for your stress levels and overactive mind! This DIY linen spray just might have you catching those Zzzz’s before you know it!

47. Meal plan for the week ahead

Is the amount of money you’re spending on groceries breaking the bank? We understand!

Getting organized and planning out your week’s meals not only saves you money but time too!

Don’t have a clue where to start? Grab this free printable from my friend Michelle. She has the very best tips you won’t want to miss!

48. Do an at home massage

Few things can top a great massage, right?

Have a partner? Swap massages. If not, consider these natural remedies for back pain where I share what has worked wonders for me in my battle against chronic pain.

Cold Therapy

49. Print out your digital photos

Do you have hundreds of photographic memories on your phone? Get them printed out and make a “favorite memories” photo collage.

Display them in a space you live in often so you can smile often too!

50. Learn what your love language is

Everyone has a way that they tend to express love and feel loved in return. Most likely, this is your primary love language.

The problem is, the person receiving your love may speak a different love language entirely. This can cause hard feelings, poor communication, and lots of misunderstandings.

Find out what your primary love language is and share your results with the ones you care about. Then, have them take the quiz too so you can understand one another better.

Make it a personal goal today to do one thing that would speak the love language of your spouse, your friend, your family member, or even yourself. Sit back and be amazed at how much closer you become!

Sharing Is Caring! ♥ Thank You!


      1. Yep! Getting by as we all are! Kids keep me busy and school is about start, so that’s a whole different kind of busy! what happened to the summer? It was 2 seconds long! Hope you’re well… as well? LOL Doing good? I had to clean out my blog. I was missing the people I normally read and getting clogged up with promoting bloggers. I’m glad I found you again! YAY!

      2. A whole different kind of busy is right! Bless your heart. I hope this school year is a lot less stressful and chaotic than last! How are things looking there in that regard with COVID-19?

        As for what happened to Summer – your guess is as good as mine! Each and every year zings by quicker than I can count to 3 anymore!

        Doing ok here, praise God! It has been a busy time, a roller-coaster ride of sorts, but … we’ve been so very blessed compared to so many, you know?

        I hear you about cleaning out your blog. I’ve had to do the same before, and even still, I miss so much of what I’d like to actually see. WordPress can be frustrating sometimes. They also randomly un-follow people you thought you were following. (sigh) Oh well – it’s still a great platform to connect so who am I to complain! 🙂 I’m grateful to hear from you again. You’re a blessing! ♥

      3. Well we have two different perspectives. We started off Covid19 in south Jersey and it was super locked down and school very very difficult and scary. Rioting, mean hateful stuff going on. But we bought a house in the Pine Barrens, far away from everyone and everything. It got a little better being away from the city. But then my husband’s company moved us in the middle of the pandemic to south Texas. It’s like normal life here. Which is a breath of fresh air. I was just happy my kids were able to go to school again full time, participate in sports and activities, and meet people. It had been a lonely existence in NJ. Things are pretty good here but there’s areas that are more strict or have more difficult people… we just avoid those areas. I’d say for the most part Texas is my favorite place we have lived. It’s just hot all heck here!

      4. Oh wow! It made me smile to hear that you love where you live now! And that your kids are able to participate in all the activities they love and enjoy. Kids (and their parents) need those opportunities to just ‘be free.’

        I do agree though – Texas heat is something to be reckoned with! 😀

  1. #21 and 22 are just up my ally! When you posted the things to do outdoors, I think I commented to the effect that I would wait for snow. These are GREAT! 😎

    1. Hahaha, I’m in full agreement with you about waiting for the cooler weather or the snow. Like you said in your other comments – the heat coupled with humidity just takes the enjoyment out of being outdoors. Ugh! I try not to complain, but it really drains the energy battery doesn’t it?

      I also wholeheartedly agree with you about #21 and #22. It’s a joy to ‘meet’ someone else who appreciates the so called “old fashioned” way of enjoying our day-to-day lives. Not enough is ‘simple’ these days — at least not in a positive way!

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I’ve really enjoyed hearing from you.

    1. Hey Shell! ♥ You made me smile when I heard that you and Ali were taking this on a challenge. Sounds like fun to me! Which puzzle did you two do? They’re so much fun. Very stress-relieving, aren’t they?

      1. We did a Cracker Barrel nostalgia one that has all the fun things from when we were kids. 🙂 We love puzzles. We went on a streak with them last winter because of being locked in. Put together and framed three large Disney/Pixar ones and the put together and broke apart several White Mountain and Clementoni (love their graphics, the color is so clear!).

        We also have completed 5. Go Cold Brew, 12. Try a New Food (can you say Kung Pao Chicken?!?! How am I this old and I’ve never tried it?!?!), 13. Have a jam fest (we did a full concert for one another last night while playing Bowser’s Fury).

        We are in progress with a Mid-year Evaluation. 🙂 And next up: 14. Learn about natural living. Ali is exploring vegetarian and vegan, for plant-based eating and has already switched to nearly ALL clean, vegan skin care. It’s fun watching her become who she is.

        This is a great set of options!!! Thank you again.

      2. You two are awesome! And I can see why you enjoy watching Ali become who she is. Such a beautiful process. ♥ It sure sounds like a whole lot of fun happening over there and that makes me smile!

  2. Fab list! I really love the idea of getting in some early Christmas shopping and having a tech free day, as well as printing out and organising all my photos! Thanks for sharing x

    1. Hi Caroline! ♥ Thanks for stopping in & sharing your thoughts! I love that you are working on creating a scrapbook. It sounds like so much fun and I can only imagine all the memories you’ve recalled since starting it. 😊 I hope you enjoy it & find it relaxing!

  3. Wow Holly! I love this. Summer is here. I love summer! I’m always so busy I hardly have time for any fun activities but in summer, I have a break from university. And I have time to try out some new things and have fun. You’ve got some fab activities here. I would love to try new foods, and create a prayer journal. Thank you for sharing.

    1. I love that you make some time for yourself in summer! We all need a break, you know? I hope whatever you decide to try from this list makes you smile wide. 🙂 And I hope you are able to get some rest and enjoy this season you love!

      Thank you for stopping in & commenting, Ruth. You are awesome. ♥

  4. These are all so fun! I like both indoors and out, but tend to spend more time indoors. I like the idea of taking a relaxing bath. I don’t do that enough, that’s for sure! There are some fun ideas to do with my kids, too. Thank you!

    1. Hi Heidi! I am glad you enjoyed this list and found a few things you’d enjoy doing! A well-timed relaxing bath is hard to beat, isn’t it? I hope you can indulge in one soon! 😊 And I certainly hope you and your kids will have a great time making new, fun memories! Thank you for commenting! ♥

  5. Holly, my heart is full. Thank you so much for including and sharing Peace by Piece Puzzles in this post. I (we) appreciate your kindness and generosity so much. Hugs and blessings across the miles. xo

    1. Aw! It is absolutely my great pleasure to share your beautiful business with the readers here. ♥️ Many hugs and endless love heading to you and yours!

  6. Such a great post, Holly! I’m actually not a big fan of summer so aside from lake days on some weekends, we tend to stay home! I love organizing and cleaning my home and having cold brew like you mentioned here! I also love painting and doing some crafts. Thanks for sharing this lovely list xx

    Lynn |

    1. Hi Lynn! Lake days sound nice. 😊 At least it’s better than the beach (in my humble opinion!) I’m betting you guys have had some great memories there.

      I’m with you on cleaning and organizing though! It’s such a rewarding feeling, isn’t it? It makes being creative so much easier because everything is ‘in its place.’ Maybe even have a cold brew while cleaning — now that’s a great combination!

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I appreciate you! ♥

  7. I love all of these ideas!! And your iced coffee sounds amazing! I love iced coffee, but for some reason haven’t had any in forever. I think it’s time to change that! And I had no idea there were so many benefits to it. Tomorrow’s goal is to get an iced coffee at McDonald’s while I’m out running errands! (I’d much rather have McCafe than Starbucks!)

    And of course, I love those DIYs. How cool!

    So neat that you included putting together a puzzle. Just the other night I was telling my daughter that we need a big puzzle to put together!

    I love Plant Therapy! And their birthday oils smell amazing!

    Those pet costumes are so cute! Maybe Balto would like to wear one this year? 😀

    I miss pen palling, too! I used to have so many pen pals! One of them came all the way from England to spend a week with me. We had the best time reading and watching old movies! And I loved showing her around Roanoke where she was staying. She loved it here!

    I cannot thank you enough for sharing my links. You are so sweet! Thank you so much for your support! I love you, my friend!! (And not just because of your support, but because you are you and you are an amazing person!)

    1. Oh my goodness Michelle, I think you would LOVE this iced coffee recipe. Maybe one day I’ll make one for you. 😊 Your idea of getting a cold brew at McDonalds tomorrow while you’re out running errands sounds like a winning plan to me though! I hope you enjoy every tasty drop!

      Looks like great minds were thinking alike again about the puzzles. Do you two have a favorite kind to put together? Or just spontaneously pick one that looks fun? I must admit, it’s one of those ‘zone out’ kind of activities that works wonders for stress relief.

      Yes!! Plant Therapy’s birthday oils are the best. I got Key Lime Pie last year and I am obsessed with it. It really does smell just like the real thing. YUM! I saw your last birthday oil too and where you said it was your favorite yet. 🙂

      As for Balto — I see a blog post in the making! That cutie definitely needs a costume! 😀 I wonder what he will be? 💭 I bet the cats would have a few ideas, ha ha ha!

      Oh wow! I love that you had a pen pal who came from England to spend time with you. That’s amazing! You really get to know someone in communication like that and form deep friendships. I love that you two got the chance to enjoy your favorite activities together. You must have really great memories.

      It is genuinely my pleasure to share your links. You have been an incredible support to me as well. And I too value you as a person, simply for who you are. Thank you for your love. I love you too, Michelle, and will always do what I can to encourage & support you. 🤗

      1. I would love one of your iced coffees! That would be fun! 🙂

        We love any kind of puzzle, especially the 1000 pieces or more. It’s fun to be able to leave them out and just put random pieces together whenever.

        I have the Key Lime Pie oil, too and I love it! My husband even likes it but that’s because he thinks it smells like WD40. Men! haha!!

  8. Oooo these are so good, Holly! I’m bookmarking this for the day I manage to catch up and can actually look at doing something fun for a change!

    I think indoor activities have generally become far more popular during the pandemic and they’re always handy for those of us with illnesses that mean we don’t venture out much anyway. Moving to Motown sounds very, very fun. And I’ve always liked the idea of trying stained glass creations. Lots of colourful, doable and varied suggestions here so that there’s something for everyone.

    I hope you’re having a relaxing weekend, Holly.

    1. Aw! It made me smile when you said that you were bookmarking these ideas! 🙂 If I were you, my friend, I’d go ahead and have some fun today. I don’t know about you but ‘catching up’ seems to be an idea that never truly happens, ha ha. All we can do is the best we can do each day, right?

      You’re right, indoor activities do seem to be a lot more welcomed these days. We often forget to appreciate the simple fun in life. It doesn’t have to cost us our savings and we really don’t need to look far away for it. Those things have their place too. They’re just not always realistic!

      I’m with you on stained glass. The whole process is fascinating. To do it ‘professionally’ takes some real skill but that makes it all the more intriguing, I think. What about you? If you do get the chance to try your hand at it – I hope you love it!

      Sending endless love and many hugs your way. Thank you for always sharing your thoughts, Caz! I appreciate you. ♥

  9. Wow, there are so many unique ideas in this list! I had never heard of the Sofa Singers before, and I also never know you could access Mars online! These are great activities for a rainy summer day. x

    1. Hi Sophie! Isn’t the Sofa Singers idea neat? Like you, I was unfamiliar with them but just had to add it. I can see a lot of people doing that. 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed & hope you have tons of fun indoor summer days ahead. ❤️

    1. Aw! Sweet Meg! It is SO good to hear from you. As always, I’ve been thinking of you. How are you & your family doing?

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I like to mix in light-hearted posts everyone can relate to, along with the deeper, heartfelt words of encouragement. I’m glad you enjoyed this one. :).

      Always sending love and many hugs your way as well. You are loved! ❤️

  10. Wow there are so many amazing idea here! I specifically love the idea of trying new food as this is something I don’t do very often!

  11. As an almost vampire-like pale redhead (lol) I tend to avoid going out during the summer whenever I can — at least during the hottest parts of the day and/or being in direct sunshine. I really love the ideas that involve learning/experiencing something new like eating food not tried before or getting to grips with a foreign language. It’s all too easy to think that if you’re not outside doing something over the summer that there isn’t anything to entertain us. As you proved, there is so much! I tend to spend this season doing things like crafts and stuff around my house — cleaning and organizing my fridge is going on my to-do list now that you mentioned it (fab reminder). You’ve given me so many ideas this has been so useful — thank you so much!

  12. Great list!! The penny game sounds interesting to play! And definitely agree that summer is the perfect time for a midyear evaluation
    Neat post
