2) Planting

So what if you’re overwhelmed with all these social media testimonials of how plants can be calming during a pandemic? Don’t just read or hear about it! Try it yourself and see if it works!

3) Sewing

Why don’t you rummage through your old clothes, then try to sew some patterns together to make a new pillowcase? Or maybe rework those old pants and make a bag out of it!

4) Upcycle
