Quarantine Ideas

At the time of writing this, a quarter of the world is in some kind of lockdown. Meaning that many people are entering quarantine, or have been there for a few weeks. So, to save us all going stir-crazy, and maybe even be productive at the same time, I’ve compiled a list of ideas to keep you busy while staying safe.
