15 Recreational Indoor Activities for the Family this Weekend

Entertainment, Miscellaneous.

Many family members today are often staying at home to work and attend classes. Oftentimes, we forget that our condo is a place for everyone to relax and spend time with your loved ones.

A vast majority now have also decided to stay indoors to prevent themselves from getting sick and possibly risking the other family members. This has reduced the number of family bonding activities one could do normally in a mall or a vacation spot. But don’t worry, there are many recreational activities you can do inside your condo.

Furthermore, DMCI Homes properties offer many facilities so you and your family could enjoy a wonderful time together without having to leave the community.

Here are some recreational indoor activities you can do in your condo with the entire family:

  1. Make DIY slime on your balcony
  2. Paint the skies in the garden
  3. Make dresses for the children at home
  4. Make resin art in the picnic grove
  5. Collage your favorite photos in your living room
  6. Upcycle the furniture in your condo
  7. Practice hula hooping in the garden atrium
  8. Jump rope in the open spaces
  9. Practice photography and video editing at home

Unique Recreational Indoor Activities You Can Do At DMCI Homes

1. Make DIY slime on your balcony

Perfect for: Kids and the kids at heart

Help build your kids’ muscle strength, especially with their hands with homemade slime.

Knead together an adequate amount of glue, food coloring, baking soda, and a few tablespoons of saline solution until you get that satisfying consistency kids love.

This quick crafting activity can keep your kids entertained for hours while you work. It can also help you relieve stress while working from home.

2. Paint the skies in the garden

Perfect for: Kids and adults

Bring out the creativity of the entire family with a blank canvas and a set of watercolor paints. You can start by painting their favorite shapes with a color of their choice, or ask them to paint their dream house or vacation.

With painting, your children can develop hand-eye coordination, which is one the most important skills at their age. It can also be a podium for children to progress and discover their creativity.

3. Make dresses for the children at home

Perfect for: Adults and senior citizens

Express your love for the kids by knitting their clothes, hats, and even bags! Knitting and sewing may be a treacherous task, but it keeps your brain sharp and helps you remain calm and relaxed.

This would be a perfect indoor recreational activity with your grandparents and parents. And who knows, it could be a good summer business idea for the little ones, too!

4. Make resin art in the picnic grove

Perfect for: Teens and adults

Another recreational activity you can enjoy indoors is resin art. This kind of creative activity uses epoxy resins and other art materials like dried flowers and other elements to form a mold.

You can create molds as a remembrance of one of your favorite trips with the family or preserve the flowers your loved one gave during valentine’s day.

5. Collage your favorite photos in your living room

Perfect for: All ages

Photos keep your memories alive, especially the special moments with the family. Make the memories last forever by creating collages with the kids during the weekend and hanging them on the walls of your condo unit.

6. Upcycle the furniture in your condo

Perfect for: Adults

Living in a condo unit means you have limited space in your home to buy new furniture. So, instead of buying new ones, you can upcycle the furniture instead with your loved one and convert it into the furniture of your dreams.

7. Practice hula hooping in the garden atrium

Perfect for: Kids and adults

If you’re looking to achieve a healthier lifestyle this summer for the kids, you can start by teaching them how to hula-hoop.

Hula hooping outside, for example in the garden of Sonora Residence, can help boost your cardiovascular fitness, improve your cholesterol levels, improve brain function, and reduce stress. This, in turn, helps reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes.

8. Jump rope in the open spaces

Perfect for: Kids and adults

Improve your children’s coordination and balance by teaching them how to jump rope. This kind of exercise is a fun cardio activity for the entire family.

While it’s clearly impossible to jump rope indoors as you could hit many fragile objects, you can do this in the outdoor facilities of the condo like the jogging and biking path in Kai Garden Residences.

9. Practice photography and video editing at home

Perfect for: All ages

If the kids would rather stay inside your home, away from the scorching heat, they might spend most of their summer days scrolling through different social media apps like Tiktok and Instagram.

Make the most of their time in front of their phones by teaching them some basic photography and video editing skills which they can use to create a vlog of your recent vacations.

No matter what the result is, you can hang the photos and treat your children’s artwork as a condo design made especially for your space. As for the videos, you can post them on platforms like Youtube, or even your personal social media feeds to share to the world

10. Enjoy tai chi and yoga with friends in the lounge

Perfect for: Young adults and adults

If you’re not the biggest fan of strenuous exercises and activities, you can squeeze in a session of Tai Chi or Yoga.

These forms of exercises help relieve stress, anxiety and depression and improve your flexibility, balance and agility. You can do tai chi and yoga inside your condo or with your friends in the lounge area of the Allegra Garden Place.

11. Write to your heart’s extent before sleeping

Perfect for: All ages

Some thoughts are meant to be shared. If you’re not comfortable with sharing it with a friend or loved one, you can grab a notebook and start scribbling away.

With journaling, you can help organize your thoughts and emotions to help lighten up your mood. This recreational activity allows you to record your ideas, get creative with how you express your thoughts in the notebook, and overall improve your mental health

12. Take up online courses in your condo

Perfect for: All ages

Apart from recreational activities, you can also enroll the children (and yourselves) in different online courses to finish throughout the summer months. With this, you’re able to add a new skill to your portfolio without having to leave your home.

13. Convert your balcony into a mini garden

Perfect for: Young adults and adults

If you can’t take a few days off for nature tripping, why not take nature into your home? Start planting some indoor plants that can filter the indoor air while providing a cool and relaxing atmosphere.

14. Enjoy movie night in the living room

Perfect for: All ages

Get your popcorn ready! Enjoy movie night with your kids by watching comedy movies appropriate for tweens. It’s certainly one of those summer activities that will get you and your kid laughing out loud. You can also watch other genres like adventure movies and documentaries.

15. Make your own ice cream

Perfect for: All ages

Eating cold treats that you made is one of the creative ways to enjoy the rest of the summer. Get your kids involved by asking for their help to prepare this simple chocolate peanut butter banana ice cream.

All you need is to mix 1 and ½ frozen bananas, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and three tablespoons of chocolate soy milk. Freeze for two hours and you’ve just finished one of the yummy and interesting kids’ activities this summer!

Key takeaway

Even while we’re still recovering from the COVID-19, we can all still have an enjoyable and productive summer with our friends and family. Just make sure to always follow the imposed health protocols like wearing a facemask, and practicing social distancing. If anyone in the family feels sick, best to stay home and isolate in the meantime.

Make the most of your summer even at home when you’re with DMCI Homes. Check out their properties and enjoy island life in the middle of the urban jungle.
