Things to do at home in Covid-19 Isolation
Inspiration for all the family during the lockdown period
We may not be travelling but that doesn't mean that we can't use this time to discover new interests and grow our abilities at some of our favourite hobbies. Rather than binge-watching box sets during the Covid-19 lockdown period, why not take this time to be constructive! Here are some suggestions for things to do from home which also, importantly, still support the local Marbella businesses.
