Weekends. We love them, but we also dread them when we have nothing to do, especially in the given times of COVID-19. The trick to overcoming weekends’ blues is to start appreciating the little things in life. We only have this one life, so each minute should be spent trying something new, fun, and exciting. Remember that not all fun things require you to break your bank and spend tons of money. Fun things can also be simple and relaxing, such as trying out the voopoo at VapeKing or visiting an open-air concert. Without further ado, let us jump straight into the list of 8 fun yet cheap things to do on the weekends.
1. Watching the Sunset
Can’t leave your home? No worries, step outside on the balcony and find your favorite spot to enjoy the sunset. If your house happens to be next to a lake, you can have amazing shots of the sunset.
2. Take a Stroll in the Park
You can grab your spouse or best friend and enjoy a stroll in the park. If you need some mindfulness and time alone, you can also take your yoga mat with you and breathe in the good fresh air of nature. For some extra enjoyment, swing on the swings and reminisce about good old times when we were kids.
3. Picnic Lunch?
Nothing can go wrong on the weekends with a good picnic lunch. Enjoy the day on a shady spot with your loved ones. We recommend eating healthy and freshen up with seasonal fruits and fresh veggies.
4. Go on a Hunt
Get your hunting knife and explore the wilderness. You can also plan camping in the wilderness after your hunt game is over. Don’t forget the flashlight and tents!
5. Play Board Games
Did you know that board games have gained loads of demand since the start of the pandemic? You have a variety of options to choose from, such as Monopoly, Chess, or Scrabble. Board and card games are activities that ensure quality time with family. Additionally, the screen time can be curbed with indulging in board games.
6. Arrange a B.Y.O.E. Party
In case you aren’t familiar with what B.Y.O.E. stands for, it is the abbreviated form for: Bring Your Own Everything. Your guests will be encouraged to bring their own food, games, and drinks to share with others. Thinking about which you won’t have to spend much while having quality time with friends and family.
7. Get Ice Cream
I hardly know anyone who doesn’t love ice cream. Everyone does, and there is no better way to cheer up than by having your favorite sweet dish. How about making an ice cream shake by blending your favorite flavors? You could also try making your favorite ice cream sundae at home.
8. Cook your Favorite Meal
