If you’re looking for something to do whilst self-isolating and social distancing, jigsaw puzzles and playing board games are a great way to pass the time.

It is important to stay mentally stimulated whilst you are staying at home. Puzzles are a good solo activity, but can also be done as a household team effort.

Just make sure you don’t Hoover up any pieces if you are deep cleaning (another activity lots of us are doing!).

Board games are also proving popular right now. Usually their time to shine is over the Christmas period, but with families looking for things to do they are set to be the perfect Easter offering.

Just be mindful of those classic board game arguments, as you have to stay on lockdown with your fellow players!

There are so many games and puzzles out there to choose from. If you have some at home, get them out of the cupboard and dust them off.

Or if you fancy something new, here are some games and puzzles you may like to try. I highly recommend The Portsmouth Puzzle, which has a 1000-piece edition and a 200-piece junior edition.

You will recognise many of our local attractions that we can visit once things settle down and we are allowed out again.
