It’s a bit of a strange time for all of us and there’s a lot of things we should be doing or should not be doing to keep safe. And much of our time has been pushed to our own homes and our own backyards. It may sound like a prison sentence to some but for others it could be a time to recoup and discover new ways to stay active and keep our families close and happy while being cramped up at home. Even if you’re no longer in isolation, this is a great guide for any sort of fun home activities year-round.

Owning a swim spa or hot tub has many benefits, especially during a time when we are spending our time at home, along with many other outdoor activities.

The key is distance and safety. Keeping at last 6 feet apart, when you can, even from members in your own household can be helpful but this is particularly important for having family or neighborhood friends over for some socially responsible and socially distant fun times during a period of uncertainty.

Below are some great outdoor and home activities for your family and some can even be practiced with close friends, while maintaining distance.


One great outdoor activity that has natural distance built in is soccer. Even if you’re just kicking the ball back and forth between each other, it’s a great and safe way to stay active. You maintain at least 6 feet of distance, often more, during and you never have to touch the ball with your hands so you don’t have to worry about transmission as long as you continue to only use your feet.


If you’ve got space for it, now is a great time to take advantage of the nice spring weather and have meals outside when possible. If you have an outdoor barbecue area, cooking outside could be a great outdoor activity to engage in. If you have space for outdoor dining, you should utilize it as much as possible as the weather permits.

Pool & Spa Time

One great outdoor activity for your family to partake in is using your outdoor swim spa area or hot tub. While you wouldn’t want to invite over guests outside your household for this, it can be a great way for the family to exercise and have fun while safely staying at home. The chemicals in the water also help to kill bacteria and pathogens. There are many games and activities to keep the whole family engaged while bettering your mind and body.
