We would like to welcome you to the isolation party station! Here we have drawn up some of the most exciting and entertaining activities for you and your friends and family to setup all from the comfort of your home.
When the outside world has been cut off, you need to make sure that your domestic one is as invigorating and exhilarating as possible. There is something on this list for everyone to make into a fabulous backyard shindig!
Backyard Pool Parties
If you are lucky enough to have a pool in your backyard then you have no excuse not to make the most out of it! While you probably won’t have many guests over if you are in isolation, it’s time to shake your fellow residents into getting festively wet.
Pool parties are very easy to organize. The pool itself is the main source of entertainment, all that you need to do is get some meat for the barbecue, some chips and dips and a whole lot of drinks! Pool floats are also an excellent idea, allowing people to lounge about the still (or turbulent) waters in style.
Just make sure that everyone is wearing enough sunscreen and that the music isn’t so loud that your neighbors (who cannot escape the noise) aren’t having conniption fits. A lockdown pool party really has no time limit, seeing as no one has any real commitments outside of work.
Investing in a Projector for Sensational Movie Nights
Movies and series are going to become an integral factor for surviving the lockdown boredom. While sitting on a couch with some snacks while watching a movie on the TV makes for passable entertainment, why not bring the cinema experience into your home?
Do you remember those white screens that teachers used to project documentaries onto during class? This is the first thing you will need to mount in your backyard. These installations are easily set up, just make sure that you purchase a white screen with a stand and not a wall-mounted one.
Next, you will need an actual projector. These range from the more affordable HD variety, to the monumental 4K projectors which provide the ultimate clarity and quality. It all depends on how committed you are to transforming your backyard into your personal theater!
Social Games for Friends and Family
Now that outdoor activities are off the list, it is time to invest in the phenomenal variety of games available to the modern consumer. It all really depends on what you and your fellow residents are into. Board games are a fantastic way to get into gaming, especially with classics like Monopoly or Scrabble.
If you want to fork out a bit more cash and get into electronic gaming, the Nintendo Switch has plenty of party games which the whole family can join in on. Then there are social games for smartphones like “Heads Up!” and “Houseparty” which allow you and any amount of people to play hilarious guessing games together like “Quick Draw!”
Hanging out Across the World
Remember that you are not limited to just hanging out with the people in your physical proximity. There are plenty of ways to virtually connect with friends and family across the world with apps like Skype and Zoom.
Why not organize a remote drinks evening with your loved ones for a festive rally? We’re sure that your nearby family and friends will also want to join in. It is important that we maintain our relationships and reach out to one another for support, not just for entertainment.
