The coronavirus quarantine has put people in situations that are not easy, but this family from Cornelius, North Carolina came up with a plan for them to have a little bit of fun to pass the time.
Alex Presley and his family are stuck inside their house because of the coronavirus outbreak in the country. The indefinite confinement left them with nothing much to do. This was before they decided on playing games with each other since the family enjoys spending time together playing board games.
The family decided to up their game and hold Olympic events in place of the friendly competitions inside their house. Their Quarantine Olympics started in April with his girlfriend Taylor Sharpe, his twin brother Zach, and his parents, Lee and Wendy Presley.
There are over 30 hilarious challenges that had been completed since the launch of the games, per the videos posts on Alex’s TikTok and YouTube profiles.
Here are some of the games that are quite thrilling you could also do at home:
