1. Set up a Photoshoot
Tons of Instagram influencers and creators (like @tezza in the picture) are taking their mirrors outside and to capture some stunning selfies! So put on a cute outfit, get your mirror, and head to the backyard and see what happens. If you don’t have a yard, no problem. Set up some backdrops inside, put the camera on a chair and snap away. Hello, new profile picture!
2. Find a new Foreign Bae
Tinder recently updated its features so you can now set your location to anywhere! For fun, maybe check out some peeps in some foreign lands: Rome, Athens, Madrid, Tokyo, Toronto, Stockholm, and Berlin? There are so many choices, you could try a different location everyday! You can also check out Zoom University which is a social dating service that sets you up on~virtual~ double dates with your best friend. Who knows – maybe you’ll find your soulmate 😉

When you post your favorite spots on Pao, the app will organize them into beautiful location boards so you’ll never forget where you’ve been. It’s like making your own travel blog without all the hassle! Plus you can relive your old travels since we can’t do any new traveling right now :/ Click here to try it out!
5. Paint Anything and Everything
Order some paint online and get going. You could try painting an accent wall in your home like this. Or start with something smaller, like pebble painting or repurposing old cans or bottles. You can even just drop paint in the bottles and shake it around like this girl did! The possibilities are truly endless.
6. Show your friends some lovin’
When you’re sick of FaceTiming but you still want to show your friends you love and miss them… we’ve got you covered. One idea: create a collaborative play list on Spotify so you each can add in your favorite songs at the moment. Another idea: send a good old-fashioned letter or postcard! It will be cute to look back on them one day. Finally: (if you’re over 21) try out some Zoom drinking games like Never Have I Ever, Would you Rather, or Power Hour.
7. Create your own Spa at home
We could all use some self-lovin’ so why not create a DIY spa at home? First, what is a spa day without some fruit infused water? Then, scope out these different recipes to make faces masks, using ingredients from your kitchen. Next move on to body scrubs to leave your skin feeling super smooth! Get all the info and ingredients you need for those here. How about trying out some funky manicures? Nail salons around the world are showing you how to do nail art at home, so give it a try (and if you mess up, who cares?).
8. *Try* to cook recipes from famous restaurants
Man we miss restaurants. But while we stay inside, we can try to bring some of them home with us. Lots of famous restaurants from around the world are sharing some of their recipes online or through their cookbooks. We’ve sorted through them and picked out some of our favorites for you. Even if you’re not a pro chef, it’s still fun to try!
