The season for beach trips, pool parties, hikes, and other outdoor adventures has officially ended — now come the rainy days! But just because the day can’t be spent outdoors, doesn’t mean the fun has already ended. Rainy weather can really dampen one’s mood, but even if it can make sleeping all day a temptation that is hard to resist, rainy days make the perfect opportunity to bond with the family!
Being locked up at home is a scenario that we’re all too familiar with, which is why finding means of entertainment won’t be difficult. Here are some ideas from vivo that are fun, and even wholesome, to do with the family the next time everyone is stuck at home on a stormy day.
Play card and board games
Card and board games are timeless and classic fun. There’s nothing like having a playful competition with your parents or siblings over Scrabble or Monopoly, an intense mind match of chess or a (hopefully) healthy game of Uno. This bonding activity is even more enjoyable when done over some snacks and sweet drinks!
Have a movie marathon
What better way to spend the rainy days than by being snuggled up in a warm blanket, drinking hot chocolate, or coffee while watching your favorite movie? With a number of available and affordable streaming sites online, families can enjoy a variety of films, TV series, documentaries, and more. There’s no need to leave the house during a pouring rain to catch your favorite actors and actresses on screen — all it takes is a few taps on a laptop or your smart TV’s remote.
What’s more enjoyable than snacking on freshly baked cookies and cakes? Making them! Let the kids join in when baking their favorite treats so they can witness the whole delicious process. It might get a little messy, but helping the parents bake sweet goodies is not only great for bonding time, it’s also a fruitful learning experience!
Do a dance or sing-a-long party
Rain, rain go away, come again another day — sing it loud and proud, and add a little groove to it, too! While most Filipinos like to joke about calling a storm because of off-key singing, attempting to belt out your favorite melancholic songs feels even better with cloudy skies and a little bit of drizzle. But don’t just stick to the sad songs! Do energetic songs too while busting some powerful dance moves with the fam to bring a little sunshine into your day.
Stroll down memory lane
Sometimes the rain can get too strong and can lead to a power interruption. But even then, there is still a way to bond with the family. One idea is to get comfortable cuddled up on the family couch and share some stories with your siblings and parents. Your mom and dad can tell you stories you didn’t know or may have forgotten as a child or you can share some never-before-told experiences you’ve had at work or school.
Create new memories
All these and more are wonderful memories to immortalize through photos and videos to give you and your family something to look back to on your next trip down memory lane. One way to best capture these memories is by using the vivo X80, vivo’s newest smartphone variant in its X series. vivo, one of the leading smartphone brands in the country, is known for redefining experiences with its products, especially its imaging capabilities.
This new smartphone from vivo features a camera powered by ZEISS technology, enabling users to capture high-quality and professional-looking photos and videos. The vivo X80 series features ZEISS T* coating in its camera lenses that helps improve image quality and presents richer and more vivid colors, making photos brighter and clearer even during times when the sky gets too dim from heavy rain clouds.
vivo has perfectly replicated ZEISS’ master anamorphic lens, which powers the phone’s cinematic video bokeh and cinematic style bokeh features. Thinking about doing some TikTok dance challenges with the kids? Make sure to record those moments using the vivo X80’s powerful cinematic features to create your trendy masterpiece.
Did dad take the kids out in the backyard to play and dance in the rain? Take a photo of this precious moment using vivo’s motion autofocus and panning that lets users shoot stunning in-action photos, keeping the subjects clear while blurring the dynamic background. No need to worry because the vivo X80 series is protected with the IP68 feature making it water- and dust-resistant.
On top of all these, the vivo X80 series also includes vivo’s exclusive V1+ chip that has a built-in super image quality AI system. The vivo X80 Pro houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the latest and most advanced 5G platform in the market today, to go along with the V1+ chip for faster performance and lesser lags.
Keep your phones powered up in case of a power interruption with the vivo X80 Pro’s FlashCharge which can support 50W wireless charging power. The phone houses a 4,700mAh battery that can be charged up to 70% in just 19 minutes and can achieve a full battery in only 37 minutes.
On rainy days, it’s perfectly fine to spend a little time browsing the internet. But if you’re considering having quality time with your family while indoors, then the activities we listed above are a good way to start. And to make sure that you don’t miss all those smiles, and for everyone to have something to reminisce on for the days ahead, the vivo X80 is the perfect device to capture all these memories.
