Three Activities to Keep You Busy at Home

Everyone’s familiar with the old saying about idle hands, but during quarantine, it’s especially challenging to keep those hands busy. By this point, you’re probably up to your ears in banana bread and you may have even moved on to making the famous “quarantine coffee” on the regular. But locally owned businesses are here to save the day with some alternatives before you start cutting your own hair for entertainment purposes.

Get Crafting:

While you may not consider yourself a particularly crafty person, with AR Workshops’ easy to follow DIY kits, anyone can create a masterpiece. With projects for youth and adults plus video instruction, as well as a brand-new retail store website, AR Workshop can help keep those idle hands busy for hours. They offer contactless curbside pick-up as well as local delivery with a minimum purchase.

Get Cooking… but not banana bread:

Head over to Carytown’s Ladles & Linens’ online Cooking School group on Facebook for great ideas of things to make in the kitchen, as well as to get up about sales on the latest cookery and livestreams.

Get Dirty:

We are pretty sure that spring weather is on its way (for real this time) so it’s the perfect time to roll up your sleeves and do some gardening. Local nurseries including Sneed’s Nursery and Strange’s Florist & Garden Center are offering curbside pick-up with online order wish lists. So, go ahead, pick-out a few pretties, and get dirty.
