Fun-Filled Indoor Activities to Conquer a Weekend In with the Family
Game Night Fun

Let's face it, South Africa: sometimes the weather just isn’t on our side. You might wake up all excited for a sunny weekend braai, only to be greeted by skies that promise a steady drizzle.

But a gloomy forecast doesn't mean you need to resort to a weekend of screen time and grumpy sighs. Why not turn that frown upside down with a fun-filled indoor adventure? Here are some fantastic activities to keep the good vibes flowing, even when you're stuck inside.

The Rise of Family Game Night!

Remember those epic battles over Monopoly that ended in slightly exaggerated tears? Well, it's time to reignite that competitive spirit with a good old-fashioned family game night! Dust off those board games that have been hiding in the back of your closet, and get ready for a night of laughter and playful disputes. We’re talking Jenga, UNO, Cluedo, 30 Seconds, all the board games you need to pretty much guarantee a family feud.

Channel Your Inner Van Gogh on a Painting Day!

Here's a chance to unleash everyone's secret artistic abilities and get messy (in a good way, of course!). Dig out those old paintbrushes and raid the recycling bin for makeshift canvases—old cereal boxes, OneDayOnly packaging, you name it.

Make it more interesting by picking a fun theme, like "Underwater Adventures" or "Outer Space Exploration," and let your imagination run wild! Not only is this a great way for kids to learn about colours and shapes, but adults can also experiment with more advanced techniques like blending and texturing. Work together on a giant family masterpiece — it'll be a cherished reminder of the day long after the paint dries.

Pro tip: Keep an eye on OneDayOnly’s deals on arts and craft supplies so you're always ready for a spontaneous art day!

Get Active with Indoor Olympics!

Need to burn off some extra energy? Why not organise your very own Indoor Olympics? Here are a few games to get you started:

Remember: The most important thing is to have fun and embrace the silliness!
