So, we find ourselves in another national lockdown but we’ve learnt a lot since last March and we’ve adapted well to these periods of self-isolation. We certainly don’t need to feel isolated with the abundance of virtual events and activities to keep us busy. Here’s some great online activities that you can enjoy from the comfort of your couch.
1. Movema free dance classes
If you’re feeling a bit lethargic spending so much time around the house then Movema’s dance classes are a great way to get moving and will create some fun in your day. Their free Dance For Wellbeing classes are suitable for any ability. The sessions are guaranteed to put a smile on your face and leave you feeling more energetic throughout the day.
2. Digital Drink and Draw
If you enjoy doodling and sketching and want the chance to do some life drawing in a friendly relaxed atmosphere then check out the Make Liverpool Digital Drink & Draw classes, which take place via Zoom. All abilities are welcome to their sessions and the informal approach means that you can take your drawing in whichever direction you like.
3. Play at home Escape Rooms
You can escape from reality in more ways than one with online escape room games and Liverpool’s Breakout and Escape Hunt both offer online, interactive games that you can play with your friends and family remotely.
4. Visit Liverpool’s ‘Activities To Do At Home’
Visit Liverpool has a resource hub with a whole range of activities to keep you entertained. There’s a series of Liverpool-related quizzes such as Everton and Liverpool FC, famous scousers and Liverpool general knowledge quizzes. The print at home colouring sheets can keep you busy for hours, colouring in famous Liverpool landmarks, plus there’s word searches and other activities that are fun for all the family and perfect for a rainy day.
5. Knowsley Safari Park: Home Safari Live
The Knowsley Safari home safari live team will show you a live stream of the animals in the safari school as well as behind the scenes footage around the safari park. There will be activities that you can do at home too. You can send comments to get your questions answered by the team and find out more about the animals at Knowsley.
6. The Florrie Guitar Online Takeover
The Florrie usually hosts guitar lessons from their Toxteth home, but in the meantime they’ve added a series of videos to their YouTube channel where various local musicians, including Jamie Webster and James Skelly teach you how to play a song of their choosing. The lessons are perfect for those who are intermediate guitar players and want to add some new songs to their repertoire.
