When you read the word ‘picnic’ above, you probably wondered, but where?
Well, this particular picnic will be at home (lol duh). Prepare some sandwiches or cakes and enjoy a picnic with your partner in your garden, on your porch or even the living room floor.
2. Party In The Living Room
If not a picnic, then you can actually host a private party with your partner right in the living room. I won’t suggest how best you should do it. As long as it’s fun, then it’s perfect.
3. Dance With Your Partner
If you’re really not familiar with the party thing, then you can simply listen to great music and dance to the tune with your partner.
Dancing has actually proven to be a good way through which partners reconnect their bodies and souls, both physically and emotionally.
4. Learn Something New With Your Spouse
Learning something new together will help both of you grow together.
You can start by learning a new language with your partner. It’s a healthy interaction that will definitely keep both of you busy at home.

You’re only bored because you’ve not done anything as interesting as playing board games. It will bring some sort of healthy competition between the two of you. Hence, you’ll shake off that idleness in your home.

You can do this each time over a bowl of popcorn.
10. Thoroughly Clean Your Home
At times, you’re only bored because your home is a mess. Yep, believe it or not.
Unfortunately, you might not really notice the cause of that boredom. Just get your house thoroughly cleaned. Doing this activity TOGETHER will benefit you and your partner in many ways.
First, it will keep both of you busy thereby eliminating idleness and boredom. Secondly, it is a healthy way of life to adopt because you will feel happier in a clean environment.
Lastly, it will build the spirit of TEAM-WORK between both of you. In a nutshell, cleaning the home with your partner is a good way to build a connection.

Another good idea if you really don’t like the album thing is to create a video collage of your favourite pictures with your spouse.
14. Create A List For Your Plans
It’s not just a list, but a bucket list of your plans for the rest of the year!
Where would you enjoy visiting with your partner, and when? What activities would you like to embark on? Get a notebook and write those plans down. It’s the perfect way to get busy with your partner when you’re bored.
15. Plan Ahead Together
Truly, nothing can be more engaging than sitting with your partner and planning your future together.
Make it a plan for the next 5 years.

If you’re more concerned about things for couples to do at home when bored without going overboard then consider cooking.
