Now that we’re about two months into staying at home, I’m starting to get antsy. I’m more than happy to stay home and do my part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, but there’s only so much Netflix one can watch and so many puzzles one can complete. If crafting piques your interest, but you’re not ready to dive into creating a hardcore masterpiece, there are tons of simple crafts kits for adults.
