Break out the glue and scissors — it’s time to start crafting.
After a few days of binge-watching Netflix, chances are you and your family will be quite bored with self-quarantine. Keep your hands busy by learning a new craft. Not only will crafting projects keep you and your kids busy for hours, but once you’re finished, you’ll also have functional and decorative items. It’s easy to find all the materials you need at an online craft store and have these delivered to your home.
Take Up Knitting
Knitting is a terrific way to keep your hands busy. There are so many cool projects you can make. All you need to get started with knitting is yarn and a pair of knitting needles. Then, just look up a web tutorial that explains the basics of knitting and start your creation. You can find many patterns, needles, and yarn supplies at an online craft store. If you’re new to the craft, we recommend starting out with a simple project like a scarf.
Pressed Flowers Make for Pretty Artwork
Pressing flowers is an easy art project in which to involve your kids. It makes lovely wall art to keep or give as gifts. To press flowers, just arrange fresh flowers between two sheets of paper towels, and then place a bunch of heavy books on top of them. Leave them this way for a week, and your flowers will be flat and dry. You can find glue, cardstock, and frames at an online craft store. Simply glue your dried flowers to a piece of cardstock and place it in a frame to create a piece of custom floral artwork.
