As the global pandemic continues, many of us are still cooped up in our homes - and it's starting to show. After months of working from home and social distancing, everyone is bored out of their minds and running out of entertaining activities. Banana bread making and tie-dying isn't enough to keep everyone excited these days, so people are coming up with creative ways to stay busy, from cooking artistic eggs to inventing new sports. If you've ever wondered how crazy chronic boredom can drive someone, look no further than right here.
1. Flashing The TV Because You Have Run Out Of Fun Ideas
This person has officially hit their coronavirus boredom peak. They found the perfect reaction clips so they could show off their birthday suit for the television. You can really tell a person is lonely when they resort to showing their naked body to the TV.
You have to wonder how many other activities they tried before they got to this idea. The person must have seen this trend on Tiktok and decided to put their own spin on the trend. It is much funnier than seeing the cringey reactions of people's significant others.
2. Using Money To Make Origami When You Can’t Spend It At Stores
Since everyone is stuck and home and online shopping has become the primary source of buying things, paper money has been sitting in people's wallets unused. This person decided to make their cash feel a little more loved by turning it into a koi fish.
Instead of letting the money collect dust, it can now be made into art pieces that dazzle the eyes of everyone stuck at home. You can turn your cash into many different shapes like cranes, swans, and whatever your heart desires.
3. Breaking Out Childhood Toys To Remember The Good Old Days
Looking back on our childhoods, we now realize how simple life was when everyone could play outside. Even on rainy days, there were fun things to do inside like draw on the Etch-A-Sketch, or voluntarily play on the computer.
This person broke out their beloved childhood toy because they wanted to reminisce about the good old days. They artistically drew the skyline, dreaming of days when they could travel to new cities and see new skylines to recreate.
4. Making The Most Of The Amazon Packages You Had To Have
Throughout the pandemic, more and more people have been buying needless things on Amazon. With all those pointless purchases, people got plenty of cardboard boxes that have piled up by the front door. Instead of letting them go to waste, this person refurbished one.
They turned the amazon smile into a face and crawled inside the box to look like a frog of sorts. Amazon should start advertising all the other ways you can reuse their boxes as a recycling initiative. This person should get free packages for life for this creative idea.
5. When Humans Are Stuck Inside, Dinosaurs Reclaim The Land
As humans are stuck inside, wild animals have reclaimed their land. From deer to dinosaurs, you never know what you will see on the streets these days because fewer people are disturbing their habitats. Even the dinosaurs have come out of extinction to see what happened to the planet.
While these two dinosaurs rarely get along, it is nice to see them as friends for their return to earth. We wonder why these people had these costumes lying around their house, but at least they are putting them to good use. They are getting fresh air while staying safe from the virus.
6. A Hairstylist Uses Her Boyfriend's Hair To Keep Busy And Practice New Styles
For months, hair salons were closed, and hairstylists were stuck at home, unable to practice their skills. One stylist decided to use her boyfriend's luscious locks to practice different hairstyles. She had to keep her hands busy somehow, and he was the only head of hair around.
He was so willing to let her do whatever she wanted with his hair, and he didn't care how silly the styles were. She went from Princess Leia to Cindy Lou Who in a matter of minutes. At least they are both having fun with this interesting activity.
7. Helping The Cats Understand Why You Are Home All The Time Now
Usually, the cats are home alone all day, and they can do whatever they want, but things have changed. Their owners are home all the time, and they get extra attention, which has confused them. The man is explaining why he is home all day now so that his cats can understand the situation.
He tried to put it in the simplest terms, but the cats did not understand. They had so many questions, and they were unhappy that their free time was taken away from them. All they wanted was a few hours with a human-free house to get a little bit of normalcy.
8. When You Are All Alone And The Toilet Becomes Your Only Friend
This woman was quarantining by herself, so she would send daily pictures to her children. They think she has completely lost her mind because each day, the toilet gets a new look. It seems that she has made him... we mean it... her companion because there is no one else to talk to.
Hopefully, she hasn't gotten to the point where she is having conversations with it. We hope her children are calling her daily and making sure she is doing okay mentally. It is an important time to check on your loved ones when you can't see them in person for a long time.
9. Trying To Stick To Daily Routines
Since many people couldn't go to their workplaces every day, they were having trouble sticking to a routine at home. Many experts said to stick to your daily routines, which is what this man is doing. He couldn't go to the construction site, so he made a mini one in his front yard.
Using his children's toys, he can still feel like he is working, but on a much smaller scale. His neighbor's thought he had gone crazy, but he was just following the wise advice of scientific experts. Until he was allowed to go back to work, he woke up each morning to walk outside and do this.
10. Not All Sports Are Cancelled
For the first few months of the pandemic, sports were canceled because players couldn't social distance. There were no games to watch on TV, and people were getting restless at home. This person got creative and created a curling game with their Roomba and Swifter.
They call it "Roombacurling," and everyone is very good at the game because the Roomba is on wheels, and it is a robot. In this person's house, they tricked their children into doing chores by creating games like this and awarding medals like the Olympics.
11. Egg-citing Breakfasts When You Have All The Time In The World
Usually, when people make breakfast before work, it is rushed because they are on a schedule, and there is no time for elaborate meals. However, since most people work from home now, they have all the time in the world to think of fancy meals like these egg-stravagent eggs.
From the golden snitch to Van Gogh's "Starry Night," this person is skilled with a few eggs and a frying pan. These look too beautiful to eat, and we wouldn't want to ruin the artwork that took a long time to make. We can only imagine how long it took to perfect these designs.
12. Performing C-Section On A Clementine, All The Babies Are Safe
Sometimes when you get to a certain point of boredom, you start to do very strange things like this person. The got an x-acto knife and performed a c-section on their clementine. They made sure every baby was safely wrapped in a blanket and the mother was stitched up.
At first, the babies were conjoined, but the doctor safely separated them, and they are all doing well just in time for a snack. Wouldn't you feel weird about eating these right after you performed this "surgery?" It would be like eating a living creature.
13. Leaving A Note For The Next Remodeler To Know What Was Going On In The World
When the pandemic began, everyone was panic-buying toilet paper as if it was the "best" resource to help people stay alive. Store shelves were empty, and people started to order it online as a last resource. To commemorate this time, the contractor of this bathroom hid a role under the floor for the next person to find.
In their note, they described the current situation stating that Charmin's stock was doing much better than the DOW. We can't wait for someone to find this, years from now, and have sudden flashbacks of the year 2020 when everything in the world came crumbling down.
14. Pac-Man In Real Life
If you have gotten bored with every other game in your house, and you crave outdoor time, this is the activity for you. Although there aren't many cars on the roads, you can still make this version of Pac-Man entertaining. Just grab a sock, give it some eyes, sit by the window, and you are ready to play.
While this may only entertain you for a few minutes, you will still have loads of fun pretending to eat the cars as they drive by. If you have ever wanted to impress your children, this would be one way to trick them.
15. At What Point Are You Bored Enough To De-Seed A Strawberry With A Tweezer?
We don't know how long it took for this person to remove every seed from the strawberry, but it seems like a tedious task. What would bring someone to this point where they feel the need to do this. Out of all the activities someone could think of, this doesn't seem like the best use of their time.
For anyone who has trypophobia, this is very hard to look at without feeling uncomfortable. What if this person did this to a whole carton of strawberries? They would have a huge pile of seeds to use to grow their own strawberry garden, possibly.
16. Sticking To The Daily Commute For Work From Home
This man has to work from home these days, and he misses his daily commute on the train and the subway. Instead of waking up later, he sticks to his regular routine and stands in the bathroom for thirty minutes as if he were on his way to work.
When he finally gets to go back to his office, he will feel like nothing has changed because he stuck to his schedule. His family might wonder why he is in the bathroom for so long every morning, but he uses it as his time to watch the news or catch up on his podcasts.
17. Testing Out Art Skills You Never Knew You Had
Since many people worldwide lost their jobs, they are figuring out new ways to make money. Some are doing odd jobs, while others are tapping into their hidden talents like art. This person didn't know how creative or artistic she could be until she had the free time to practice.
She designed this illustrated version of all the office characters to make a cute poster for her room. There are plenty of people who have started small businesses during the pandemic, and maybe she will start selling these online.
18. This Family Got Creative With Post-Its For Everyone Who Passes Their House
When this family ran out of ideas for activities, they gathered all of the post-its and created a giant mural in the windows for people to see when they walked by. It was fun for the whole family, and now people having something exciting to see on their walks.
It would be much more exciting if they kept moving the characters, so it looked like someone was playing the game, but this took a lot of work. If they are really bored, they could change the picture on a weekly basis to keep things entertaining.
19. How To Get Your Children To Leave You Alone So You Can Get Work Done
This dad had enough of being bothered, so he gave his daughters an old laptop and monitor and told them to take it apart and put it back together. He is a genius because they are so focused, and he no longer has to hear, "Dad, we're bored!"
Not only is this keeping them occupied for hours, but it is also educational, and they will know more about computers than anyone else their age. Hopefully, the computer still worked once they put it back together, or that would have been a waste.
20. Indiana Jones And The Golden Toilet Paper Treasure
Since toilet paper is hard to come by these days with everyone creating stockpiles in their homes, finding a roll is like finding an ancient artifact. Instead of the golden idol, Indiana Jones found the golden toilet paper roll, which is worth more than any idol these days.
Indiana Jones is wondering if he can steal the golden roll or if he has to save it. He might need it in the future when there is no more toilet paper left in the world. This might be the last roll in the entire world.
21. Laid Out Outfits For The Next Two Weeks
Since people don't have to leave the house, there is no need to get dressed up and waste nice clothes. All you need is two weeks' worth of socks and one sweatsuit to get you through the quarantine, clothing-wise. You can even walk around in just socks if you live alone.
With all this free time, you can finally pair all the odd socks that have been lying at the bottom of your drawer. This person needs to update their sock collection because it is looking a little bland. If this is the only thing you are wearing, it might as well have a bright colorful print.
22. Fun Drinking Game For Anyone Who Lives On A Busy Street
The world has turned into Las Vegas in the sense that everyone is losing money, you can drink any time of the day because it is acceptable, and no one knows what day it is. These days, you can wake up and have a breakfast beer, and no one would judge you.
These people decided to create a drinking game so that anyone who drives by will honk, which forces them to drink. Hopefully, many cars pass their house so this sign is worth it. Although, we are sure they don't need an actual reason to drink.
23. He Was Wondering Why There Was An Increase In Pets And Attention
Like many other pets, this cat didn't understand why he was getting so much extra attention. He became accustomed to this lifestyle, and his owner wasnt't getting enough work done, so they had to have a serious talk. There was a PowerPoint presentation with graphs and everything.
The cat doesn't care about the charts, he just wants pets and cuddles. He is not interested in having this lecture about attention because he knows that no matter what his cuteness will win over his owner's affection.
24. Just Starting That Essay For Home School
Cue the Spongebob narrator saying, "Three hours later." After sitting down to write this important essay, they only got one word written on the paper. At least it looked beautiful despite the fact that they still have finished their homework.
They just have 2,000 more words to write until they can submit this glorious assignment. Hopefully, their teacher accepts this artistic begging as an extra credit because the rest of their essay will be rushed due to how much time they spend drawing this one paper.
25. They Have Been Married For 67 Years, But This Is Too Much Time Together
This older couple has been married for many years, but this is the first time they are spending so much time together. Although it was nice for the first week, they are now hiding from each other on different sides of the house.
A few more months and one of them will be sleeping in the shed just to get a few moments of alone time. Their children should check on them more often, so they know these two aren't going too crazy stuck in their house with each other.
26. Quarantine Travels To Exotic Destinations
This man is posting daily pictures of his quarantine travels. Today he went to the Taj Mahal, and tomorrow he might see the Statue of Liberty. All of his Facebook friends are jealous that he can travel safely, because they are stick at home.
Each day this man sets up different settings using items he can find around the house and poses for a photoshoot. He is working his creative juices, and he can pretend he is traveling the world from the comfort of his home.
27. Trying To Feel Like He Is Outside Again
This person loved to feed the pigeons before the pandemic, and to find a bit of normalcy, they pulled up a video of pigeons eating and fed the TV bread. If they leave a window open long enough, a real pigeon might swoop in and join the party.
If they have a cat, it will come along and try to attack the birds on the screen for some extra entertainment. This person should take a walk outside to get some fresh air and remind themselves of the outside world. As long as it is abiding by the guidelines and laws, it is ok to get some fresh air.
28. Finally Having Enough Time To Learn To Levitate
This boy had a lot of free time since his school has been closed, so he taught himself how to levitate. His parents couldn't figure out how he did it, but it was incredible. Now when he returns to school eventually, he can show his friends and teachers what he learned during the quarantine.
We still can't figure out how this boy did it. Was it photoshop? Is it an optical illusion? What is this sorcery, we must know? This is a much more valuable skill than anything you can learn in school because no one can teach this.
29. Any Interaction With Humans Would Be Helpful
This man decided to sit on his stoop and ask people to stare at him because he missed human interaction so much. While some people are holding signs saying "will work for toilet paper," this man just wanted to stare at people walking by his home.
As time goes on, he will change the sign to read, "free judgemental stares" because he is going to start judging people who aren't following the rules. Whenever he sees someone without a mask, he angrily glares at them until they run away.
30. The Gang's All Here
Does anyone remember that episode of Spongebob when he refuses to leave his house because he is scared to get hurt? Then he makes friends with objects lying around his house? Well, that's just like this person. They started a card game with their succulents because there was no one else to hang out with.
One of the plants is doing really well in the card game; she is on a roll. Someone needs to beat her before she wins all the money. What would a succulent do with all that money? Buy a new pot? This person needs to start winning before her plant takes all the tokens.
31. Practicing Their Pancake Making Skills With All This Free Time
Much like the egg artist, this person has been working on their pancake making skills. On this day, they mastered baby Yoda, and it turned out pretty great for a first attempt. It looks like they might have used some sort of mold to make it look so good with the shading.
This breakfast is almost too cute to eat, but it does look delicious. All Yoda is missing is some maple syrup, and he will be ready. This person also made plenty of other characters like Spongebob and Patrick.
32. When You Can't Have A Party, So You Photoshop One
Since everyone has to stay at home, and social gatherings aren't allowed, people had to cancel many parties. This person didn't want to give up their right to party, so they took a picture of themselves doing different things and made it look like they had a banger.
If this was a real party, it looks like it would be a blast - besides the person lying on the couch or playing on the iPad. Their neighbors probably hate them with all the trumpet and banjo music that goes on throughout the night.
33. A Productive Day Of Working From Home
Why do the work that had a deadline when you could make an archway out of mini pringle containers? Your boss won't care that you didn't get the important work finished because you accomplished a personal goal.
They might have gotten fired for the lack of productivity, but at least they have the pringles to commemorate the productive afternoon of chip stacking. Luckily no food was wasted in the making of this snack-tastic archway.
34. Evolution Of Quarantine Haircuts
If at first, you don't succeed, shave your hair into an arrow and call yourself the last Airbender. What could possibly go wrong? Hopefully, your hair grows quickly or you might have to dress up as this character until the arrow fades.
We wonder what other characters he could make himself into throughout the few months of barbershops being closed. They are pretty skilled with the razor, so they shouldn't have a problem giving themselves a better fade.
35. How To Grow Your Own Toilet Paper
People have been struggling to find toilet paper at the grocery store throughout the pandemic, so this person tried to see if he could grow some from the empty roll. He asked online how long it would take for the paper to show up, but everyone denied that it would work.
This person must have forgotten that paper grows on trees, not on the roll. They got confused because people kept posting their propagating pictures, and he thought it would apply to the toilet paper.
36. Social Distancing With Their Only Friends
Some people have one rubber duck for their bath, but this person went overboard and bought thirty. While taking a bath, this person invited their closet rubber ducky pals to join in on bathtime, and it looks like a real party. The ducks love the bubble bath because it feels like a foam party.
This person is probably plotting to take over the world with their duckies as minions. This is where they meet to plot their world domination, but it is hard to get things done when all their faces look so innocent and sweet.
37. How Bored Are You On A Scale Of One To Spelling Your Name In Grass Trimmings?
This person asked their dad how quarantine was going, and they got this picture as a response. After mowing the lawn, the man took out the grass trimmings and spelled out his son's name for fun. You can tell he is very bored because he is getting to all those house chores he hasn't done in months.
The dog was supposed to look at the camera, but he spotted a squirrel and took off chasing it moments after the picture was taken. The only problem now is that the man has to clean up all of the trimmings off of the driveway.
38. Making The Most Of The Extra Time With His Cat
Why spend your time learning useful skills when you could teach your cat about gun safety? This person doesn't even own a gun, but they want to make sure their pet is adequately informed about using a weapon in case he encounters one.
The cat seems a little too interested in the book. There must be pictures of weapons in there, which is concerning because cats are going to take over the world. This is one more cat that will know how to overpower us with a gun once the cat overlord comes to power.
39. Finally Learned How To Fold A Fitted Sheet
This is one skill that most people have never mastered in their lives. Folding fitted sheets is an art form because they are oddly shaped and have elastics, making it difficult to smooth out. Most people get frustrated and crumple them in balls before throwing them into the linen closet.
We don't know how stores neatly fold them into the packaging and make them so perfect. It is frustrating when you have a freshly washed sheet, and then it won't fold into a nice compact square. This is the most useful skill to practice while you are stuck at home.
40. This Dog Deserves A Gold Medal
We don't know what to call this sport, but this dog would definitely win first place. Look how good he is at balancing the chips on his paws and chest. This cute pup deserves all the treats in the world for patiently sitting still to take this picture.
What would you name this sport? We would call it chip balancing, and to win, you have to hold as many chips while balancing for the longest amount of time. We wonder what other sports this dog has learned while stuck at home with his owner.
