A staycation is like a vacation, except that you don’t really travel anywhere. In this time of coronavirus, you almost have to have a vacation at your time because the options are so limited.

What can you do at home that is so special? Well, that is where creativity comes into play.

  • If you have snow, you can build snow castles and build snow people in the yard. There are so many things you can do with snow.
  • A warm or hot climate offers ideas such as relaxing in the sun.
  • Board games can also be fun for both children and adults.

A staycation plan should include memorable events that take everyone out of their normal routine. You may stay at your own place like usual, but you can do different things to make the time memorable.

  • One idea is to set up tents inside the home or in the garden. You can do all the things that are normally done with camping.
  • What about a big movie night? You can plan a brand new release and set up big chairs and popcorn too.

Money may be tight but you don’t have to spend cash to have a good time. Make every effort that you can at sharing and spreading joy and happiness to those in your household.

I hope you can use some of these ideas. Please remember that both adults and children need fun and recreation. People need distractions to help them relax.

Consider taking time to plan something interesting and fun for all of you and your family to do at home. After all, fun memories are the ones most remembered later on in life. Create interesting events in your life and you will be surprised at little money is needed to create a great event.
