List: Ten free weekend activities to do at home.

The past few weekends my family and I have found ourselves huddled inside our apartment.
In an attempt to hoard some last minute cash before our home purchase, we’ve been staying in.
I do love me some time inside to sip wine and catch up on housework, but we’re officially bored.
By bored, I mean complete cabin fever, scratching at the doors, DYING to get out, boredom.
When we officially couldn’t take it anymore, we started to enjoy some inside activities.
It was nice to have fun and spend some quality time with my family for free.

Ten free weekend activities to do at home.

1.  Start, join, or manage a fantasy sports team.
This is real fun, especially when your competition is family, friends, or co-workers.
It’s amazing how a fantasy sports game can automatically make watching a game 10x more intense!

2.  Complete a 3-D puzzle.
The 3D puzzles that make something like a house are very difficult and lots of fun to do.
Make sure you clear off your dining room table and get ready for it to be occupied for a few days!

3.  Fill up the freezer with pre-made meals.
I’m famous for always having frozen tubs of sauce & meatballs, different soups, and stews within reach.
This makes your life so much easier during the week and is great for those surprise dinner guests!

4.  Family manicures and pedicures.
Fill up the tub to soak your family’s toes in water and baby oil.  Then clip, file, & cut each other’s cuticles.
My baby girl will only do her nails when she sees that mommy and daddy are doing it too!

5.  Binge-watch a whole season of a TV show.
Pick a series that you’ve been dying to see, and watch as much as you can.
We do this at night when we’re winding down to go to sleep.  Why not rock it on the weekends?

6.  Play an intense game of Monopoly.
Rock the traditional game of Monopoly, but make the game all about an intense wager.
Winner gets to pick a movie rental?  Helllooo chick flick that I NEVER get to watch with company!!

7.  Have a family dance party.
Learn how to do the Salsa, the Merengue, or any dance you like and practice as a family.
Luckily, my husband enjoys teaching us these dances, but you can always rock YouTube to learn!

8.  Complete a crossword puzzle.
It’s amazing how difficult crossword puzzles actually are and they’re real fun to do with a partner.
Cheaters that rock Google during this should have to do the dishes for an entire week!

9.  Host a pot luck dinner.
Have your family and friends come over with a different dish, beverage or dessert.
Enjoying people’s company and indulging in a gourmet meal without all the work is a great time!

10.  Make homemade candy.
It’s cheaper than buying candy at the store and way more impressive when you hand it out.
Please don’t do this on Halloween.  There’s nothing scarier than homemade candy from strangers!

What are your favorite free weekend activities to do at home?


  1. my fave Sunday activity is sitting in an armhchair, not moving and staring at the wall.... that is what you need after six days of all day long work :)

  2. All great free, family fun activities. My fave is binge watching Netflix with copious amounts of wine. Uncle Jeffy and I are addicted to Sons of Anarchy right now.

  3. Puzzles are my favourite rainy day indoor activity

  4. Binge watching works for me. Monopoly is fun but the damn game can take forever sometimes haha fantasy sports can be fun too, on Slamdunks once more at my shore

  5. I've only binged watched one show and that's Game of Thrones.
