Staying in is the new norm and it can be hard to come up with creative and fun things to do, especially as we ring in the new year. We’ve rounded up five fun things you can do to make the most of the holiday weekend from the comfort and safety of your home.

1) Host a virtual cocktail/mocktail night with your friends on Zoom

New Year’s Day doesn’t have to be spent completely alone. Find some fun drink recipes online and make them with your friends and enjoy them while discussing your new year’s resolutions.

2) Play a virtual game with your friends and family

It may not be the same as playing a board game in person but we promise you can find fun and joy in playing virtually. There are a ton of games to partake in and if you’re up for a challenge, try out a virtual escape room.

3) Host a virtual karaoke night

Did you know you can sing karaoke on zoom? It won’t be the same as doing it in person but it will definitely be an experience to remember. Download an online karaoke player and share using the “screen share” button. Press play and the lyrics will come up giving everyone the chance to join in.

4) Check out a new movie on Disney+

Disney Plus recently came out with a new movie called “Soul” that is said to take your breath away. Make some popcorn, grab your blankets, and make it a magical night. Did you know that Disney+ now features a Disney+ Watch Party? You can now make it a movie night with all of your Disney loving friends.

5) Do something that sparks joy

Have a movie marathon. Clean your entire apartment. Start journaling. Start the year off with things that bring you joy and things that make you happy. 2020 was quite the rollercoaster so let’s start 2021 with a fresh, clean slate.
