Stuff to do at Home
Having to Stay At Home can be a challenge. Thankfully there are loads of brilliant resources on offer for activities to keep everyone engaged, connected and entertained, from the comfort and safety of your sofa. From making art to virtual museum visits, from doorstep Shakespeare to staying fit and healthy- folks across our Fine City and beyond have put these resources together for all of us to enjoy. Why not give some of them a go?
You can do the activities by yourself at home or with the members of your household BUT if you’re in a neighbourhood group on WhatsApp or similar, why not ask your neighbours if they want to give some of these a go, too? If you aren’t in a neighbourhood group or don’t fancy a digital hangout, why not print out some of the activities and pop them through your neighbours’ letterboxes with a little note inviting them to join in?
We would love to see what you get up to! If you are the sort to share what you get up to on social media, you could use the hashtag #FineCityNeighbours – we’ll be looking out for it!
Lots of organisations in Norwich, Norfolk and further afield have put together free resources for fun creative activities to do at home. We’ve put together some links below.
Can you think of ways to do some of these together with your neighbours? You could have an online arty-party using Zoom, Houseparty, Facebook or whatever you prefer. Or you could display artwork in your windows and turn your street into an art gallery!
National Centre for writing have produced this downloadable pack with inspiration for telling stories.
Festival Bridge have produced a series of ‘Let’s Create’ booklets of creative challenges for people across Norfolk to do at home, designed to be fun for all ages.
Visit the Sainsbury Centre Online Studio for free, downloadable creative activities for adults and children produced by local artists that you can do at home.
Doorstep aerobics? Zoom Zumba? Or perhaps you could venture outside and volunteer safely with GoodGym – and even help deliver our #FineCityNeighbours postcard to people’s houses! There are loads of ways to stay fit and healthy from home and connect with your neighbours. Give some of these a go.
Try Something Different!
We ‘do different’ in our Fine City – which is a good thing, when finding ways to stay connected and entertained during these difficult times means we have to think outside-the-box! Here are some ideas to start from- could you think differently and find ways to get your neighbours involved, too?
