5 Ways to Beat Boredom in Self Isolation

So, we’re stuck at home for the time being, are we? Rifling through your list of indoor activities realising all of them have been done before? No one would blame you for sinking into the couch and watching Netflix for two weeks straight, but resigning yourself to such inactive indoor activities is no way to keep that brain fresh. 

There are plenty of fun things to do at home this self-isolation season, so allow us here at ClassBento help you get through it. We have a fantastic range of live classes online and indoor activities for kids and adults, and we have just launched a new feature which brings the class directly to you, but we also want to help you. 

A live stream class will help you keep the brain fresh, but there are so many methods to stop you from melting into mush! Our ClassBento live classes online will help for sure, but here are five ways to beat boredom in self-isolation that combine everything at your disposal (hopefully).


Netflix and chill... and live classes online 

It would be neglectful of us to not immediately say that we respect your decision to have a streaming service on at all times during your search for fun things to do at home. Part of the benefits of living in 2020 is that whether its a plague, a fire, general air quality or the lack of affordable options outside the house, one indoor activities staple is the television. We wouldn’t take that away from you! But maybe just for a second, check out some indoor activities that keep those hands busy. 

ClassBento now offers a live stream class that can show you how to design, mould and continue to craft polymer clay jewellery! The best part about this live class online is that you do not - and we cannot stress this enough - need to purchase a firing kiln for polymer clay. It hardens naturally and doesn’t stick to surfaces like natural mud clay, making it easier to clean up and nicer to work within the house! 

Via our Zoom live stream, you can discover everything you need to start building your own jewellery, with all the materials and tools you need delivered to your doorstep. So tune in, pick up some quality craft tips, and craft away the day with one of the most colourful indoor activities, all while you watch another episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Foolproof.

Need Indoor activities, try jewellery making

Punch some needle embroidery instead, for your indoor activities

This self-isolation season couldn’t drag on any longer and your list of indoor activities and what to do when bored is starting to wear thin. You’ve exhausted the books on the shelves, Twitter is giving you a headache and if you play another game of checkers you’re going to throw it not out, but through the window. 

It’s ok, shake it off. Going stir-crazy is one of the potential hazards of self-isolation but ClassBento has an answer for what to do when you’re bored. As far as indoor activities go, knitting is something you never thought you would try.

Punch needle embroidery is a wonderful place to start on your stitching journey because not only is it super enjoyable, it’s highly creative and a great choice for fun things to do at home! The freedom that comes with punch needle embroidery isn’t possible with a lot of other fibre art mediums. It’s also a great technique to learn if a quilt or some sofa cushions need some redecorating. Make lemonade out of those lemons, you. This live stream class will have you jazzing up the house in no time. 


Indoor activities with indoor plants

Keeping the air fresh in self-isolation is one of the many things to do at home to avoid a musty and dusty house, obviously. Open a window now and then and let the airflow through. Turn a fan on and stand behind it, speaking into it pretending to be a robot or something. There are so many options to keeping the house fresh and healthy, but they don’t make for particularly exciting indoor activities. But the best way? Get some green.

Our terrarium workshops with ClassBento can get you constructing a mini world inside your world. Not only will you feel like God, developing your own personal ecosystem, but you’ll also be freshening up the air in your house! A study by NASA found that plants don’t just produce oxygen, but also eliminate harsh toxins from the air. Particularly useful if you’re looking for practical live classes online and indoor activities this self-isolation season. 

If you’re feeling more like a challenge when you’re looking for what to do when bored, our kokedama classes are also a great way to really sink your teeth into some botanical mastery. A Japanese form of moss ball hanging, you’ll be able to purify the air in a very pretty way. 

Help, I’ve got kids

Help is on its way. Looking for indoor activities for kids has never been more crucial. Kids get bored quickly, but to be fair, they are also entertained easily. A game of chess might work for a while, and flicking on every known episode of Bluey is sure going to help with your search for indoor activities. But when you need to call in the big guns, ClassBento is waiting for you with live classes online and things to do at home with kids to put all their pent up energy into. 

We’ve got jewellery making workshops that have a strong, eco-friendly message that’ll show your children how to get crafty with recycled materials. We’ve got macrame classes that are the perfect live classes online for shifty little hands who need occupying before mum flips her lid. Actually, what makes macrame one of our indoor activities MVP’s is that it isn’t just very rewarding. Due to its emphasis on knots, there are no knitting needles required, making this one of our safest live classes online for kids. If you’ve got more than one child to keep busy, this is one of those indoor activities for kids that can’t possibly end in a makeshift swordfight. 


My internet is down!

Although our new ClassBento live stream service requires an internet connection to enjoy, our ClassBento box delivery system requires none at all! Although you will need the internet to engage with the full experience, our craft boxes come complete with instructions and materials, so you can craft from home and off the grid! Mix this up with a few other boredom-destroying options and you’re laughing! There are plenty of indoor activities for you to savour. People lived without the internet for years, so surely there’s something to do. Have you tried cooking? Cooking is fun. What about chess? Art? Free thinking? King Lear was written when Shakespeare was stuck at home during an outbreak of plague, so maybe get that novel you’ve been planning out of your system. ClassBento’s live stream requires the internet, but after the self-isolation season comes to an end, there’ll be plenty of our public classes ready for you to sink your teeth into improving whatever you’ve been working on! Don’t lose hope, and stay strong. We believe in you, this self-isolation season.
