Stay at Home and Learn a New Craft/Hobby

In times like these, we need to keep our morale high and confidence up. So we must start feeding ourselves lifestyle tips that begin at home and with family. So why wait for outdoors life when we can have more fun indoors.

There is a whole world of things to do around your free time. Have you ever wondered what these are? Well, do not worry; we have prepared a short list of hobbies and crafts you can attempt to make the most of your quarantine time at home.

Soap Making


Well, if you are a fan of handmade soap, this is your chance to try your hand at this wonderful craft and develop it into a hobby. Just melt old soap lying around your home in an aluminium pan and pour it into a mould to cool and solidify.

You can add oils or other ingredients and fragrances of your choice into the soap mixture to give it a distinct character. Natural ingredients from your kitchen make the best add-ons to soap mixtures. This is the best way to use up old stocks of left over soap. Watching an online tutorial might help.

Candle Making


Candle-making can be a very therapeutic exercise and it is the best way to spend your time at home. Take sticks of candle or lumps of wax and heat it in an aluminium pan till molten. Collect an assortment of dried flowers, cinnamon sticks, and dried fruits and decorate them in a mould where you will be pouring in hot wax.

You can also make your candle a fragrant one by adding fragrant oils to the molten mixture. You can also carve the candle to your desired shape and sculpt it as you wish to.

Pasta Making


Cooking can be a very calming exercise, especially if you are someone who does not cook regularly. But preparing raw materials at home can be an even more rewarding experience. Today we will discuss how pasta dough is made at home. Take a mix of semolina flour and make a mound of the flour on a wooden board.

Then create a hollow in the mound and pour four large eggs whisked in a bowl. Then slowly mix a little dough from around the hollow and knead it well. A little olive oil and a few teaspoons of water can be added to moisten the dough. Cover with a cling wrap and refrigerate for upto a day if not using immediately.
