Now is a time when we are all looking for fun things to do online. I thought I would share a few of my favorite resources with you. Then you can use my list to find a few things to do yourself or use a few to get inspired for things your kids can do. Either way, you are sure to beat the boredom with these ideas! This is a continuation of our series and you can find our list of fun things to do when you are bored here as well.
This post is sponsored by The Tundra, however, all projects and opinions are my own.
Fun Things to Do Online
I thought I would break my list into a few different categories so you can find what you are searching for a bit easier. Whether you want to learn a new skill or just find a better way to find content that interests you, we have an idea of a website that might help!
Cultivate Your Passion
Perhaps you are already passionate about a hobby or topic and just want to cultivate that a little more. You can definitely do that a wide variety of ways online but sometimes navigating through the mounds of information that Google returns can be a challenge.
What if all of the RSS feeds, podcasts, videos, groups, sales forums, discussions, and so much more were broken out by topic to find what you need a bit easier? You can find all of that at theTUNDRA. Just find your interest network where everything you want will be right there in a collection for you. Or you can also search at the top and again break the results into sections to find what you need easier. You can even customize your own newsfeed to get just what you want to see daily.
But what am I doing on theTUNDRA? Creating a resource for all Cricut fans of course! You can see my Cricut Crafts and Ideas group here. Post your questions or answer questions I have for YOU! Let’s build a community around our love for all things Cricut during this time.

Binge-Watch Something New

You can also binge-watch the 100s of videos I have on my YouTube channel if you want something crafty to watch. Want more ideas?
