6. A Jason Momoa coloring book to keep you busy and give you some eye candy to snack on while you decompress. And look, no one's judging if you prop this book on the pillow next to you at bedtime. Literally, no one.
7. A candle-making kit so you can create them to relax and then light 'em up around your house to relax some more. This seashell kit is especially cool if you're missing the beach these days and want a few reminders around your space. 🕯️
8. Antique rose quartz knobs to render you un-bored with the plain knobs on your dressers and cabinets. Just twist and boom, you just slayed your room in a few minutes with your crafty self.

10. A tie-dye kit! Yassss! You're about to go tie-dye wild and it's right on time because tie-dye clothes are trending right now anyway. So, you can make stuff you'll actually enjoy wearing this summer. Grade school art class nostalgia for the win!
11. A washable sidewalk chalk set so you can put some color on your driveway, balcony, or the sidewalk near your apartment whenever you take a few moments to get some fresh air outside.

13. A make-your-own gem stickers kit so you can bedazzle stickers and place them wherever it'll make your heart happy.
14. A chalkboard fantasy playhouse that you AND the kids in your life will enjoy putting together and drawing on. (And don't worry about whether or not young kids will like this. Per my little cousins, when it comes to playtime activities, building a fort is STILL top two — and it ain't two.)
16. A marine life paint-by-sticker book if you've already learned that painting/coloring inside the lines is just never gonna be your jam but you do love the idea of systematic coloring. You'll have your masterpiece in no time, so help you stickers!
18. A lettering and calligraphy workbook to help you practice fancy-schmancy handwriting that'll come in handy for all the sweet cards you give out on special occasions and other things you create with your new handmade crafting abilities.

20. DIY embroidery kits to occupy your time and give you something pretty to hang up afterward to celebrate your favorite icons.
21. A DIY succulents kit – it'll help you bring more plant life into your home — especially if you have no plans on actually taking care of a live one.
22. And a pack of stickers if you really hope to be crafty but believe the closest you'll ever get is decorating your laptop, phone, or tablet with loads of stickers to celebrate The Office series — which you should totally re-binge since you're home more these days.
You to your reflection in the mirror after getting your craft on like a doggone pro!
