Are you ever bored at home and have nothing to do so you end up living on your phone? Here are five things to do at home when you are bored.

One thing you can do with stuff that you have around home already makes slime. For slime, you need glue, borax, and food dye (optional), but there are other ingredients and recipes online.

Slime is fun to play with no matter how old you are, and it only takes about 20 minutes to make and provides endless fun.

Another yummy activity is baking. One easy baking recipe anyone can do at home is cookies!

Who doesn’t love cookies? There are so many flavors.

Don’t want to bake? There are even a lot of cookie recipes where no baking is required. Try peanut butter chocolate no-bake cookies.

Movies are another great way to help pass the time. If you have any streaming platform like Netflix, Disney plus, Hulu, etc. there are always newly released shows to try or even binge some classics.

Don’t be afraid to try new genres! You may find a new movie genre you will love.

Do you love dogs? If you said yes, walking dogs would be a great way to pass the time.

Even if you don’t have a dog, maybe your neighbors would pay you to walk their dogs outside.
Dogs love to exercise so if you are an animal lover that would be fun for you and your dog!

Being cooped up in the house can be unbearable if you are an active person, especially on a rainy day.

At-home exercise is a great way to get out that energy! There are many ways to work out in your house that can pass time and get you in shape.

In most at-home workouts you don’t even need equipment or that much space.

Now you have 5 more things to fill up your free time!
