Because of the coronavirus lockdown, we’re spending most of our time at home. However, not all of us are used to spending so much time cooped up in one place and it’s starting to show!

Some people are so bored that they’re coming up with creative ideas to spend their downtime. Like one person who thought it would be a brilliant idea to walk around on all fours with an Amazon box on their body. Or another who took off all the seeds from a strawberry with nothing but a pair of tweezers.

Bored Panda has collected some of the best pictures of people doing fun activities during the coronavirus lockdown. So scroll down, upvote your faves, and drop us a comment about your original things to do at home, dear Pandas! Be sure to read on for our interview with Greg Whale, Joe The Doodle Boy’s dad, about how lockdowns can be the perfect time to teach others and help them unleash their creativity.

While boredom is great for shenanigans, staying at home can inspire us to work on new projects and help others out with our genius ideas.

Remember Joe The Doodle Boy from England who kept getting in trouble for drawing in class and who then went on to decorate his art school’s wall and the dining room of a restaurant? Well, he just created a new YouTube channel where he teaches other kids how to doodle, helps keep them busy, and opens up their creativity while they’re off from school.

Bored Panda spoke to Joe’s dad Greg Whale to learn more about how his son is settling into his new role as an online art teacher. “Joe is really enjoying passing on his doodle methods—he loves working on his YouTube channel and helping other kids and also many adults to open up their creativity in this very strange time!”

According to Greg, his son Joe said that “art is an amazing indoor activity, so my brother Jesse and I are taking this opportunity to be positive and help others create.”

Joe spends as much time drawing as he can. Now that he’s got his YouTube channel up and running, he’s “really happy he has another thing to create.”

Greg and his wife are teaching their 3 children at home, using online learning resources recommended to them by their school.

The Doodle Boy has been very busy recently! “Joe has just completed a 30-piece commission for an eagerly awaited 5-star hotel in Palm Beach Florida where his work will be in each of the luxury rooms,” Joe’s dad revealed. “Joe is also working on 2 commissions for 2 of his followers. Joe now has an agent in LA, USA, who is in deep discussions with major publishers and animators.”

In other words, Joe’s on a roll and the lockdown doesn’t seem to be dampening his spirits. He’s an inspiration to all of us stuck at home to start creating. Are you up to the challenge, dear Pandas?
