Everyone is going a little stir crazy at the moment.
Here are a few ideas of what teenagers can do while social distancing at home.
1. Try to break a world record
If there is one thing that your teenager has on their hands, it's time. It's time that could be used to achieve something, such as breaking a world record. My favourite records that are just calling out for someone to beat them include the most amount of Smarties eaten in one minute blindfolded using chopsticks - which currently sits at 20 - and the most amount of hamburgers eaten in three minutes - which at the moment is 12. To find the full list of world records to try your hand at, head to guinnessworldrecords.com.
2. Bake it off
Get them in the kitchen and cooking what they want to cook. And if they don't know, how about getting them to create a new pizza combination, or try a new cuisine that they haven't had a chance to learn? Or, if they want to try to recreate a favourite take-away meal (or learn what other fast food tastes like around the world) Google fast food copycat recipes and they'll be cooking up a storm in no time - even if it is chicken nuggets and Big Macs.
3. Virtual escape room
Anyone who has ever been to an escape room, knows how addictive it can be. There's just something about the adrenaline that comes with trying to beat the buzzer and solve the mystery before the timer runs out. A good alternative to experiencing an escape room is an online version. There are plenty of online platforms where you can fill your time with. A library in Pennsylvania, America has created a Harry Potter-themed online escape room for all the Potterheads in your life.
4. Get creative
Learn to sew, do some painting, learn a dance routine or take candid photos of your family as they adjust to their new lives confined to their households and put on an at-home exhibition. Start writing a book, create a zine, or learn how to play a musical instrument. The list of what creative things you can do at home is endless. Skillshare is a good place to get tutorials (and ideas) if you need them, as is YouTube.
5. Go to Disneyland
Or at least virtually go to Disneyland. Obviously, there is no chance of heading to the happiest place on earth right now but you can check out what the rides are like via Virtual Disney World's YouTube channel. These particular videos are better with virtual headsets but you can still get the overall experience through these 360 videos. If the 360 experience is not for you, YouTube video has plenty of normal videos of each of the rides and either version you choose, you're still guaranteed to get off of Splash Mountain dry. Other theme parks that have similar online experiences for their rides include Universal Studios Hollywood - including Harry Potter World - and Six Flags.
