The last week has been stressful for so many Americans. With the spread of the coronavirus, national, state and local governments have implemented regulations. School systems have been closed down, and many workers have been instructed to work from home for at least the next two weeks.

Despite all the changes and difficult adjustments, we can always count on the Internet for a good laugh. In an effort to make the best of a hard situation, a whole lot of people have gotten pretty creative in coming up with ways to entertain themselves while homebound.

We've compiled a few of our favorites for you.

2. The sock puppets


3. The home gym
