Time to Get Crafty!

If you’ve been spending a lot of time with your kids cooped up inside recently, you may be looking for new ideas on how to keep them entertained. Or maybe you just want some new arts and crafts ideas to do together. Here are some fun craft projects to do with kids that both you and your little ones will love!

Create a Children’s Book

Creating a children’s book is a great way to combine a bunch of small projects into one. The materials are easy:

  • Paper – as many pages as you want your book to be!
  • A hole punch
  • Ribbon or string
  • Writing/coloring utensils

To bind your book, punch even holes in your pieces of paper. Loosely tie the ribbon or string through each hole. Not too tight, or your book won’t open as easily! There! Now you’ve got your book. What goes inside is up to you. Draw, write, paint, cut out and glue, the options are endless. We recommend using fun stamps to add a personal touch. Create a story and some characters with your kids, then let your creative spirit take the lead!

Make a Cootie Catcher

Bask in the nostalgia of cootie catchers by making them with your kids. Cootie catchers are a good way to keep the hands busy because, as we all know, idle hands cause trouble. Get your kids folding, coloring, and using those cootie catchers with this handy guide.


  • Square piece of paper (one per cootie catcher)
  • Pen or pencil
  • 4 different colored pencils, crayons, or other coloring utensils

Cootie catchers are fun faux fortune tellers that can be as simple or creative as you want! Personalize them with stamps, pictures, and stickers!

Fun Hobbies For When You’re Stuck At Home

We hope you’re staying safe, healthy, and virtually connected to your family and friends during this tough time. As we all seek to slow the spread of COVID-19, most of us will be staying home for an indefinite period of time. This can be especially challenging for those of us who live alone, or for active people who have trouble staying occupied inside. Perhaps you’re an introvert who prefers to be alone, and you’re enjoying this time! No matter where you land, you might be looking for hobbies to help you pass the time and keep you grounded and peaceful during this stressful season. Here are a few ideas:

Learn an Artistic Craft

In this day-and-age of YouTube, you don’t have to attend art class to learn a new craft. Drawing, painting, pottery, jewelry-making, and more are just a few artistic skills and hobbies you can try by yourself at home! Once you have the necessary materials, let your creativity fly, or watch one of those calming Bob Ross videos on YouTube.


The recipes are free on the internet or you can pick up a cookbook at your nearest bookstore. Bake cookies, cakes, and muffins, or try out that new roasting rub you’ve been dying to taste.


Photography is a great way to see the world through a new perspective. Appreciate nature through a different lens. Setting up and using your own darkroom can be a relaxing and personal experience, so get out there and give it a try!


Whether you just got into photography and need a place to put your new pictures, or you’ve been wanting to collect all your memories in one place, scrapbooking is the perfect hobby for the sentimental person. Scrapbooking combines hobbies like collecting, art, and photography in a way that allows you to creatively and personally preserve your life. Scrapbooks also make great gifts, especially for those people you don’t get to see very often.

Take up Puzzling or Model-Building

Hobbies that require careful patience and the use of your hands can be quite stimulating and very calming. Let the mind sink into a place of focus and relaxation. Time can get away from you in hobbies like this, but the results are always satisfying. Glue and hang your puzzles like an art piece and paint your models to add a personal flair.
