Staying at home is not a guarantee for boredom. In fact, there are so many ways your family can make the time at home feel like you’re on an adventure of a lifetime, not unlike Buck in Disney’s adaptation of The Call Of The Wild. Adapted from the Jack London’s beloved literary classic, The Call Of The Wild brings to life the story of Buck, a big-hearted dog, and the man (Harrison Ford) he must learn to trust. While exploring the exotic wilds of the Alaskan Yukon, Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime and finds his true place in the world.
Your family may not be able to journey to the Alaskan wilderness for discovery and adventure, but there are tons of things you can do at home to have fun, strengthen friendship and family bonds, and find inner strength just like Buck did. Here are 10 ways to have an epic adventure at home, without leaving the house.
1. Have a The Call Of The Wild movie night. Get out the blankets, make some hot cocoa and pop some popcorn old-school style on the stove. Then settle in for an adventure with Buck. The movie is now available on digital platforms including Amazon and iTunes.
2. Play hide and seek with your dog. Tell your pup to stay, hide in another room and have them find you. Inside time is a great way to bond with your best friend and they’ll love all the time you give them. No pup? Try staging this with a favorite stuffed animal.
3. Bake bread from scratch. Find a family-friendly recipe and get everyone in the kitchen to mix, knead and bake. Enhance those wilderness survival skills by baking one of the essential foods without leaving the house and purchasing it at the store.
