8 unusual activities for a fun-filled, feel-good weekend!

Looking for something different to do this weekend that’ll bring the feel-good factor like raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens?


Here are 8 things you might not have tried before that’ll definitely put a smile on your face…

  1. Hit the stage with rock choir

Who doesn’t feel good when they hear their favourite song? Unleash your inner diva with your local rock choir. If you’ve got the moves, you’ll love this modern singing phenomenon, where you can sing everything from festive rock classics to current pop bangers.

  1. Let it all go with laughter yoga

If you’re one of those people who can’t stop laughing during Happy Baby pose, laughter yoga is for you. Try it for a hilarious cardio workout, and even some health benefits like reducing pain and stress and boosting your immune system![1] What inhibitions?

  1. Zorbing – the scariest, most hilarious minute of your life

What do you mean you’ve never tried rolling around the countryside in a huge inflatable hamster ball at 30mph? Fun? Check. Weird? Definitely. Just don’t load up at breakfast.

  1. Test your brain and your nerves in an escape room

We’ll be honest, the idea of being locked in a room and given limited time to escape isn’t immediately tempting, but these Maze-style games make a brilliant group outing. And if you find you’re a puzzle-solving sensation, ‘escaping’ is even a competitive sport now.

  1. Snack under the stars with a stargazing picnic

Wrap up warm and ponder the wonders of the universe with a spot of stargazing. Choose a night before the full moon and head out with a picnic. Our luxury fruit, coconut and seed flapjacks made with Pura liquid coconut oil are ideal for a midnight feast, astronomer-style.

  1. (Re-)learn to hula hoop

Hula hooping is back! For a fun way to exercise (and revisit those halcyon playground days), grab yourself a hoop and get twisting. Don’t know a Z-spin from a round-and-round? Find top tips online or join a local club – you’ll be hooping in lasso in no time. 

  1. Pimp your pineapple

It’s no secret that pottery painting can be extremely relaxing. But what about painting a pineapple?! A masterclass of bejewelling pineapples with glitter, sequins and paint, all while enjoying a cheeky glass of prosecco, is the new hen do must-do.

  1. Blacksmithing workshop

You might not be able to hammer out your own portcullis on a Saturday afternoon, but you might make an impressive door knocker. These workshops give you the chance to try your hand at heating, striking and bending metal to forge a bespoke iron sculpture. Not bad for a day’s work.


Feeling hungry after all that feel-good fun? Why not try putting a new twist on your favourite weekend meals with our range of Pura liquid coconut oil products.
