Things to do when you're bored on a rainy day and stuck at home with practically nothing to do

Forget the old saying: "It's raining cats and dogs". Is it more like raining tables and chairs? Can't go out with your friends? Can't go the movies? So you're stuck at home in your seat surfing the web. Boring! Well, here are some suggestions to become unbored (if that was even a word lol). Hope you enjoy!
(This was an original idea I had last Tuesday, so the pictures on the intro and the first step are from last Tuesday)
And I know, this is my first Instructable in a while now.

Step 2: Build a Blanket Fort

Who doesn't love blanket forts? Take some permission, some pillows, some blankets, some chairs and stools, some imagination, some books or other heavy objects, a playmate (a sibling in case a friend can't come over), and a name for your fort! But make sure you don't block the doorway! You will also need some snacks, games, and other fun things to keep you and your playmate entertained!

Step 3: Movie

Just in case you can't go to the movies, there's nothing more relaxing than fixing up some popcorn (if you're not allowed to use the stove, use the microwave), getting a glass of your favorite beverage, putting on a movie (if you're on the TV, watch HBO, Encore, Starz, etc.) and relaxing on the couch while you watch the movie.

Step 4: Origami

Origami can be pretty useful if all you have is your two hands and a piece of paper. Remember that Google is your best friend on origami diagrams and tutorials. If you're in the mood for some cool pop up crafts with origami, then check out jeremyshaferorigami on YouTube.
For the animation programs on step one, can they be used for things more complex than stick figures? Just wondering

Nope, Pivot is used for the only purpose of stick figures.
