Want a break from the internet? Try these classics: Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble, Chess, Risk, Cluedo, Checkers, Battleship, or Snakes and Ladders.
All you need is a pencil or crayons and some paper, then let your imagination run wild. You may just draw some nice pieces which may endup fetching some side cash for you.
20. Play the sentence game:
Take it in turns to write a sentence on a piece of paper. Fold the paper over after you’ve finished, and then supply one word on the next line for the following person. You can make some hilarious stories this way.
21. Exercise some creative writing:
A computer, or pen and paper, is all you need to be a writer. You don’t need to be Bikozulu, just write whatever enters your head.
22. Love letter writing:
Letter writing is a forgotten art. It’s more personal to write a letter to a friend or relative, and it’s always nice to receive one back.
Use the weekend to connect to your loved one by hand-writing a nice bombastic letter and sending it to them or placing it somewhere in the house where they will bump onto it.
23. Audition for a play:
You have that hidden creative art talent you always wish you could put to us, take things a step further and audition for a local play.
Reading is a great accompaniment to your life. Head to your nearest bookstore and grab some great books.

You could turn your weekend into a great learning opportunity. Take up a French, Japanese, Italian or Italian class. Who knows what it will lead to.
