3. Workout at home

3. Workout at home

You don’t need gear to have a basic workout at home. Use bottled water (or toilet paper rolls for kids!) as small weights.

Find instructions online and devote your time to your body – prepare for the summer! Workouts will also help to reset your mind and you can do it together with your family.

4. Visit online exhibitions

Use Google Arts & Culture to visit The National Gallery in London, Versailles gardens, Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Museum of Modern Art in New York, or The State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.

Such an awesome possibility to see the masterpieces around the world in your SOXS without leaving your couch!

5. Plan the future and set a bucket list

How do you plan to spend the next year? What are you going to do when staycation ends? How can you be more prepared for the same situation in the future?

Answer these questions and have a discussion with your family members. Create a list of things you need to focus on your attention.

6. Movies and TV series

6. Movies and TV series

Discuss with your family which movies everyone wants to see and set a schedule for a week or two. If it is one of the latest Netflix series – go for it. Or maybe it’s an old good movie you want to watch again?

We recommend choosing positive movies with a happy ending! Don’t choose the zombie and apocalyptic scenarios if one of your family members feels depressed or afraid.

7. Sleep

7. Sleep

More sleep will get you more energy and better immunity. However, we don’t think it is a good idea to sleep all day long. But if you always have a lack of sleep, it’s time to get some rest and help the immune system.

You can choose Sleep Well SOXS to improve your rest during the night.

8. Plan the pantry with kids and cook the frozen meals

After stocking your pantry with staples and frozen products, it’s time to practice your skills of turning frozen meals into restaurant dishes! You can also find restaurant copy-cat recipes online and learn how to use spices and dried herbs for cooking.

Involve your kids in the process too! Tell them how to plan the pantry and turn it into the game. Let your kids draw the products that they want to have in the pantry and ask what they can cook with them. Your kids will help a lot in the future! Don’t forget to discuss with kids – why it’s bad to stock only chips, candies, and soft drinks.

9. Meditate and do yoga

Another way to reset your mind and learn your body. Invest the time in the health of your body and mind! By the way, SOXS wool grip socks can help you safely enjoy yoga at home.


10. Solve the puzzle

A lovely family game invented by John Spilsbury in the 1760s that you can order online now. If you are solving a big puzzle on the floor, keep your feet cozy and warm in SOXS.

11. Science experiments with kids

There are many recipes and online tutorials for kid-friendly science experiments using household stuff. It’s a great way to spend quality time with kids and learn scientific concepts at home just in socks. But don’t forget about safety measures!

Here are just a few of the experiments you can make at home:

  • Make a volcano, using soda, vinegar and glitter.
  • Build a parachute for a light toy, using a plastic bag.
  • Build a tall tower using plastic cups and sheets of paper or spaghetti and marshmallow.
  • Create a static electricity, shuffling the carpet in socks or rubbing the balloon on clothing.
  • Dissolve the shell of the egg simply by putting it in the bowl with vinegar.

12. Declutter and spring cleaning

Just get rid of unnecessary things and dust. Especially, when you work from home, you need to clean the home office area to get less distracted and more productive. When you spend more time at home, you realize that you don’t need as many things. Also, you have more time to reach the areas that are rarely touched and may have more dust.

Involve your family members in spring cleaning and organization. Don’t forget to clean your closets and refrigerators as well. Check our Pinterest wardrobe organization board that might help!

13. Make a bird feeder

13. Make a bird feeder
