Here are five things to do this weekend from the comfort of your own home.


1. Host an online party


There are a ton of apps out there that provide free video chat that are pretty easy to navigate, such as Facebook, Zoom, Skype and more. Whether you want to have a video chat party with friends, family or both, pour yourself a drink and catch up with your loved ones.


2. Tour virtual museums all over the world


Museums all around the world are currently offering free virtual tours online, such as The Louvre, the Van Gogh Museum, The Vatican Museum, the British Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art and more. Museums are a great way to learn something new and if you have children, a great way to teach them about the importance of art throughout history. To visit these museums, go to the museums’ websites.


3. Take a free astrology class


At astrolibrary.org/lessons/, there is a free astrology course anyone can take. Astrology is an interesting and complex topic, but also fun to learn. It has often been thought of as a look into our futures. While it may be considered a pseudoscience to some, what’s the harm in learning something new?


4. Attend a virtual concert


According to Billboard, here are just a few of the virtual concerts being held soon:

5. Chalk drawings on the sidewalk


Who says that drawing on the sidewalk with chalk was only for kids? This can channel your creative side while also spending time outside and with your household members and/or children. If you need some inspiration or things to draw, just look online at simple drawing ideas. You could draw an avocado, a flower, a bee, birds or whatever your heart desires. Chalk is relatively cheap at the store. Grab some good music and get drawing.
