Enjoy the Great Indoors

April 13, 2020

Are you tired of watching movies and TV but not feeling the need for early spring cleaning? Memorial District shops can help you discover new ways to enjoy your time inside. It’s easy to order board games, card games, jigsaw puzzles, books, music and more online for curbside pickup or delivery. Let’s take a look at some ideas from shops in the District:

Board Games and Cards

You may think board games and card games require multiple people to play, but some are perfect for solo players. If you prefer to play games with friends, and you have the same games, try connecting with them online using remote conferencing services like FaceTime, Skype and Zoom. You can order classic, family and strategy games, such as RISK, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit and more, from Town and Country Village’s Barnes and Noble, which offers curbside pickup and delivery of online orders.

Jigsaw Puzzles

Jigsaw puzzles are having a moment, and there is a reason; they’re fun! Jigsaw puzzles are an activity for one person or many, and they help you exercise your brain. Whether you want a jigsaw puzzle with 30 pieces or 3,000 pieces, Memorial District shops offer options. Check out Memorial City’s Go! Calendars, Toys and Games, JOANN Fabrics and Crafts and Barnes and Noble. CityCentre’s Urban Outfitters has unique selections, such as a jigsaw puzzle in the shape of a bowl of cereal or a piece of pizza. Get these products shipped right to your door.


Building a LEGO set is a fun activity for one person or the whole family. It brings back happy childhood memories for many people, and sets are available for various skill levels. Movie fans might love the variety of LEGO sets related to movies, such as “Avengers,” “Frozen” and “Star Wars.” Up your skill level with LEGO architecture to build a cityscape of an international hub. Sets like these are available at Barnes and Noble.

Book Clubs

Book clubs are for everyone. Find a group with regular check-in dates on Meetup.com or follow a book-club forum on Goodreads.com. Alternatively, read a book from a book club in the Book Club Selections section on the Barnes and Noble website. Read the latest selection from Oprah’s Book Club, Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club or Good Morning America’s Book Club.

Order a physical copy of the book from Barnes and Noble or download an eBook. Are you in a book club with check-in dates? Schedule meeting times and host a book-club meeting over a remote conferencing service. If you are in a more loosely based book club, simply participate in forums with online friends.


There’s nothing like good music to brighten the day. Find cassettes, CDs, and vinyl records at the Barnes and Noble website. Urban Outfitters also has a wonderful selection of surprising cassettes and vinyl as well as headphones, record players and speakers. Similarly, the company’s Instruments and Audio Equipment section has interactive products and musical instruments, such as an electric piano, a harmonica or a ukulele. Just remember to be mindful of your neighbors!

Last but not least, pass the time with arts and crafts. JOANN Fabrics and Crafts and CityCentre’s Paper Source have good suggestions for letting out the inner craft-maker in you. With all of these options, there is certainly an activity that will help you make the most of your time indoors.
