Eight pizza box games to play at home while you stay at home

Most of the nation has now been quarantining for several weeks. At this point, those Zoom happy hours and trivia sessions (might) have lost their luster, you’re already on your third re-watch of Tiger King, and you’ve already completed every single jigsaw puzzle in your house.

So, what can you do now to keep yourself entertained? If you’re stuck for ideas, our friend Kelsey — a.k.a. Instagram’s @whatup_dough — has thankfully come up with some fun at-home games and activities that can be made using pizza boxes, and some other easy-to-source materials.

We’ve worked with Kelsey to bring you our favorite ones, but give @whatup_dough a follow as more are being posted on the regular! 

Don’t have any empty pizza boxes lying around right now? That’s easily solved.
