  • Secondly, take time to create your own list of easy bucket list ideas
  • Thirdly, plot out 3 you’d like to do month using a bucket list printable.
  • Lastly, but not least, try coloring, puzzles, making your own soda (or beer – 21 and over only) or roasting coffee at home or even at-home date ideas

The best way to have a good time at home is by getting together with friends. There are plenty of fun things you can do on your own, from playing music in the background while cooking or watching TV – it’s all about creativity!
