When is the last time you put together a puzzle? Find one you like and get to it.
29. Volunteer to Babysit for Someone Who “Needs a Break”
I know many parents who would love for someone to offer a chance to take a break from the busyness of life. Many single parents hardly ever get a chance to get out and unwind.
30. Clean Out Your Closet and Donate to a Thrift Store
Go through your closets and declutter. Find items you can donate to your local Goodwill or another thrift shop.

Go on a star-gazing adventure. Grab a blanket and head to a park to lay and watch the stars.

Bike to a location you’ve never been to before. Or, bring your bike to a town or city you’re unfamiliar with and create your own bike tour. Just be safe on your bike!

There are plenty of free online classes you could take to improve your skills in a certain area. Try your hand at investment classes if that interests you!

This one will take some thought but will be well worth it. Here’s a great resource from Michael Hyatt for helping you think through your life plan.

Related to the life plan is setting three new goals you’d like to accomplish in the new six to twelve months…and write them down!

Lend a helping hand to a neighbor, co-worker, or friend.

Get some friends together and have a blast at the lanes!
40. Visit Garage Sales and Look for Deals
Take a friend or two, grab breakfast, and then hit the local garage sales to scan for deals.

A simple gesture can really mean a lot to the men and women who serve us on a daily basis!

You can make a garden box or even an herb garden if you don’t have much room.
44. Go Dancing
Grab a few friends, put those dancing shoes on, and hit the local club.
45. Walk Through the Craft Store and Start an Art Project
Take your spouse or loved one to a craft store and each purchase a few crafts for a creative project. Or start a pine cone project!
46. Host a “Minute to Win It” Party
Invite a few friends over and challenge each other with some creative games based on the hit TV show.
47. Write a Letter to a Family Member You Haven’t Talked to in a While
When is the last time you sat down and wrote a letter? There’s something magical and nostalgic about the written word on paper. Send a letter to someone you haven’t talked to in a while and tell them how much you love them.
