‘Social distancing’ is one of the proven ways to prevent the spread of coronavirus, and as such a lot of people have decided to stay home, and batten down the hatches.
As you can imagine, cabin fever sets in pretty quickly, so many have turned to creative methods of entertaining themselves.
Walks in largely open areas with dogs (or cats) is a great way to socially distance yourself and get some fresh air.
Or, reports TIME, if you want to stay indoors indefinitely, you can get in some quality time with your pets by holding a game evening.
One game in particular is proving to be a quite popular – tic-tac-toe.
