Because of the coronavirus outbreak, we’re spending most of our time at home. However, not all of us are used to spending so much time cooped up in one place, and it’s starting to show!
Some people are so bored that they’re finding new and creative ways to spend their downtime. Like one person who thought it would be a brilliant idea to walk around on all fours with an Amazon box on their body.

Disney Launches A New Line Of Face
The US Centers for Disease Control And Prevention has advised people to wear cloth face masks to slow the spread of coronavirus. And while it’s a literal must-have for the spring, it doesn’t make it a fun and lovely accessory.

Cardboard Tanks For Cats
Garry Stevenson owns cat Mittens. “She is mostly calm and collected, apart from when we all go to bed, then she runs about the house like a maniac,” he said.
Someone in his Facebook newsfeed had shared a picture of a cat in a tank a while back. The idea had been stuck in his head for a while, and he was planning to build a tank for Mittens once he had the time. It took him around 3 hours to craft “at a leisurely pace” and Garry pointed out that his cat loves boxes and cardboard.
“I work from home anyway as a graphic designer, my wife is a carer with a Scottish charity, so it’s business as usual for us. We do have two kids around all day every day, but they’re pretty good at amusing themselves and can video chat with their friends. Overall, we can’t complain; others aren’t so lucky,” said Garry.

Almost everyone is bored out of their minds during this quarantine. Well, Kristen Vogler found a way to keep herself busy. She decided to mess with her parents with an innocent prank by replacing their family photos with pictures drawn with crayons.
“So I love doing harmless pranks in general and was talking to my younger sister about a prank someone pulled that involved replacing family photos with Nicolas Cage. But I don’t have a colour printer, so knew that wouldn’t work. I happened to have a box of crayons, and it all sort of clicked from there. That was several months ago, however. It wasn’t until COVID-19 that I found myself with more time on my hands and I actually could start it,” Kristen told Bored Panda.
