This thread is just to list all fun things to do.
On your own or with others. Be creative!

My fun thing to do right now is

Create threads on CC that are fun! Lol


Some other ideas
Make fruit smoothies. Juicing citrus is fun ...I find it very satisfying to squeeze oranges and lemons for some strange reason. If youve got too many you can freeze it and make iceblocks.
Or...Make jam
Knit. If you just starting out make something real easy, like a scarf.
Recycle paper and make paper. What you do is rip up all your old letters and bills, or you can use a shredder. Then add water and mush it up to create a pulp. You can use the pulp to make paper mache or make new paper with a picture frame and mesh...lay it out on a board to dry and create new paper.
Pick flowers and arrange them into posies.
Turn anything you collected into a work of art. I had all these old plastic bread tags in different colours. Make a mosaic out of them.
Bake bread. This is fun but also messy. Scones are quick and easy. Good thing to do with a friend as well..or make pancakes, the fun thing is whipping up the cream.

I saw a tree with longer pine needles. In my area of Canada we are not as fortunate as the southern U.S. that has great long leaf pine needles. I stopped by, asked the owner if I could gather some of the fallen ones and she said yes. I'm now going to wash them, dry them and coil them into pine needle baskets. I love to use the things that are free and not seen as valuable, to create art. I've done the same with fabric trash from the thrift store to create hand hooked ( not latch hooked) rugs. I design them on burlap and use what materials I have. Sometimes I use old telephone cords for creating baskets. Reusing what we have, to make something useful and beautiful feels great.

Haha fun thing to do..colour in.
A few years back there was a trend for adult colouring books. I didnt really get into it but then along come another one which is colour in Bibles.

I've had a go at making crochet rugs out of old t shirts. My results were pretty dire but those old t shirts had a new lease of life. (I use it to line pots in the garden). I dont care of it doesnt look (or taste) like you bought it from a shop. Thats the whole point you made it yourself! So its original and not a clone of every other thing you could buy that was most probably made with slave labour and machines.

The rug sounds great. I know what you mean about things you make yourself, especially giving things a new life!

My main fun thing is to spend time with my wife conversing on various topics of interests and concerns. My other main fun thing is to spend time on the wonderful Christian site in fellowship with those that I genuinely care about and to go to the BDF to stir up things a bit for amusement purposes. That forum is a high entertainment venue.

Only if you don't take it seriously. If you do take it seriously, it is a high blood pressure venue.

Fun things to do...for free is my challenge. What if you cant afford video games. i dont have consoles. Personally, if I would chuck them in the bin...i've actually binned a few computers. Its so satisfying.

One lady I know, smashed up her sons video games, iphone and HD tv. Because he was addicted to the gadgets and wouldnt do anything else. Lol. She just got the car and ran over the phone.

With computers just take a hammer to them. Or take them to the e-cycle.

Fun for free?
Well despite the results I have gotten before, I'm going to take a crack at this one...

http://www.caiman.us/

That's a website archiving LOTS of great freeware games.

For specific best-of-show games... google the names in this screenshot of my freeware video game folder and have a blast.

Ah, that was good times. I plowed through that whole site looking for the best video games and trying them out, so I could load up the computer I was setting up for my brother with any and all freeware games he would like.

If you can't find some of those games by googling, let me know and I'll see if I can scare up a link.

"R2S9" is "Return to Sector 9," a little freeware game where you fly a ship around shooting space bugs. "SW" is "Star Wraith" but it wasn't very good I thought... good enough to include, not good enough to highly recommend.

TAGAP was the best shooter in the bunch. Exit Fate was the best RPG. Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries was awesome, but I don't know if you can get it anymore.

A church I know collects e-cycling and raises money but thing is they dont take old tvs.
So we got rid of ours through the inorganic collection. Not much you can do with an old tv.

De-cluttering can actually be a fun thing to do.
But you have to be singleminded you cant dither around going oh no I dont know whether to chuck this or that and then just shift it around.
