Do not be discouraged if you are staying at home due to the lockdown imposed by governments of many countries all over the world. It may be cumbersome for most people especially those who are working, while others will take this downtime an opportunity to let their creativity soar.
Doing arts and crafts is one of the best past times you can do to enjoy the lockdown when you are done with your usual 8 hours work-from-home imposition by your company. And after that, you can unwind and make beautiful crafts if you want to and if you don’t have anything else to do, or if you want to engage the little ones to join the fun and hone their own creativity.
Here are a few nice things to craft while at home:
