Staying at home may start off well, as you sit back on the sofa with a cup of tea in one hand and catch up on your favourite TV shows you’ve been desperate to watch.

But eventually the novelty might start to wear off, especially when you make your way through all of the boxsets and films on your watch list.

While some may turn to board games, others may want something a little more calming and relaxing to occupy themselves with, such as craft kits.

Creative activities are a great idea for everyone of all ages and abilities, whether you want to teach the little ones in your life, refine your own skills or learn something completely new.

Google Trends has noticed a 110% spike in people searching for crafts for adults in the last week, as well as 150% rise in kids craft ideas.

Specifically searches in crochet, as well as knitting kits, paint sets and even tools needed to make rugs, soap and candles are on the rise.

Celebrities have jumped on board the trend too, as Kendall Jenner recently shared a short clip on her Instagram Story of her painting with an easel and canvas propped up while she self isolates, amid the Corona virus outbreak.

Whether you are looking for a craft for you to complete on your own, with friends or the family, or tasks to stimulate the children, there is something to suit everyone and all budgets.
