Stay at Home Activities

Here is a page full of activities, events and ideas for what you can get up to in a socially distanced and lockdown compliant way! We may have to stay indoors most of the time, but that doesn't mean there aren't fun and interesting things to be done! We have split these activties over 5 different catagories: Active, Creative, Explore, Skills and Wellbeing - so depending on whether you want to get out and about for a walk, learning something new, or just hunker down and have a duvet day, you can scroll through and see what takes your fancy.

Also, every Thursday, you and your flat mates can get involved with our brand new Flativities.

The weekly challenges will launch via Facebook, Youtube and the DSD website. So, to be in with a chance to win, take a pic of your creation and tag us either on Insta @uea_su or on Facebook @ueastudentsunion. You can find more about how to get involved, deadlines for submitting your creations and a list of what's coming up over on our dedicated Flativities page - https://ueadifferent.com/flativities/
