Fun Things to Do, Wherever You Are


Are you in search of a little fresh air and some outdoor adventuring?

If you are looking to put the online slots in Canada and the rest of the world on hold for a while and get out of the house, but are struggling to come up with a plan, I’ve got you covered!

Herewith are some fun things to do in the great ideas, and you will have many ideas the next time someone asks if you want to do something.

Set Off on a Scavenger Hunt

Gather a group of friends and family together and break off into teams for a trip around your town or city in search of specific things.

You’ll need to start by making up a list, and this can include anything, from a red bicycle to a couple kissing.

Use a specific hashtag, and have each team post a picture whenever an item is located. Whichever one manages to find all the items on the list first is the winner.

Getting Invigorated with a Vegetable Garden

Snap up some seeds from your local gardening center, lay claim to a plot in your backyard, grab some cute overalls and get digging! In due time you will have a source of fresh produce at your fingertips.

Remember to invite everyone who helped you plant to the first home-cooked meal you make with your pickings.

Be a Tourist in Your Own Town

Take a day to really get to know wherever you call home. You could visit a natural museum in the area, or pay your local art gallery a call, or take some time to explore the botanical gardens.

Check out the points of historical interest around you, or stop by a farmer’s market to take advantage of some local flavour. 

Harness Up and Have Yourself a Horseback Ride

Look up a local ranches or equestrian centers to take advantage of riding opportunities near you.

If you are on the fence about how much fun this can be, see if you can find a free or discounted initial lesson so you can test-drive this activity before you commit real cash to it.

Acquaint Yourself with Your Closest Amusement Park

Do you enjoy the thrill of a rollicking roller coaster ride? Then why aren’t you already in your seat at one at the amusement park closer to you?

Challenge friends, or even a date, if you don’t want to go alone, to take a trip on each of the rides.

Plan the Perfect Picnic

Stake out a spot in your local park, tell your friends to bring their favourite food and drinks, and plan an afternoon of games and sports.

You could even opt to go old-school and set about childhood favourites like egg-on-a-spoon relays, three-legged races, and tug-o-war.

Give Something Back by Volunteering

You could help give an old house a fresh coat of paint, spruce up your city with a little landscaping, collect litter from an area suffering from it, or even walk dogs at your nearest animal shelter.

You will not only be getting out and about, but making a difference to those in your community, as well.
