Five awesome ways to beat boredom

1. Upcycle your stuff!

You may not be able to nip out to the shops, so why not spend some time doing up your old stuff? Last November, Dove Cameron popped into the Blue Peter studio to show us how to make these amazing customised hair clips! Why not upgrade some of your old stuff and give it a jazzy new twist?

2. Do some brain training

Did you know that brain training can be very beneficial in helping you learn new skills and remembering them? It’s like a work out for your mind! So why not try this extremely hard quiz and give your brain a mental workout.

3. Make your own music

You don’t need a real instrument to make music – why not try and make these marvellous ‘Monster-nets’ for the incredible Liz Pichon? You can even earn your Music badge in the process and write your own rhythm. 

4. Play a story game

If you're bored indoors why not make up your own adventure in an imaginary world? You can download and print these story dice - or it is make your own if you don’t have a printer - then write your own story with your family!

5. Earn a Blue Peter badge

There are EIGHT badges you can earn so why not use your time to earn them all! We are now accepting email applications for the Purple Fan Club badge and Green badge, so you can apply without even leaving the house. Score!
