Easy DIYs To Do When You’re Bored At Home
Do simple crafts calm you down? I can tell you this – doing simple craft projects certainly calms MY mind. Things like coloring are great stress-relievers for me as well as a simple pass time when I’m bored. I also like to take these free personality tests because YES, I get THAT bored sometimes lol! Below are a bunch of easy DIYs and crafts YOU can do when you’re bored at home or really stressed out. Fun for us adults AND for the kids too!

Pretend Nail Salon Craft
This idea is SO fun for the kids AND for the grown ups that are “helping”.
It’s a nail salon craft project.
Just outline some hands on a stretch of cardboard, draw nails on them, and let the kids paint the fingernails – fun!
Paint Some Rocks
When I’m feeling stressed out or down in the dumps, I like to not only do some sort of craft project, but also create it for OTHER people to lift their spirits.
These types of painted rocks below fit both of those things – a fun and easy art project for the kids and I to do AND we scatter them around our neighborhood or local park for other people to find… and hopefully, it will lift their spirits when they find them.
Get these paint pen markers – they are THE best for painting rocks!
Construction Paper Flowers
I really should put this on our Mother’s Day Crafts For Kids page – such a cute and easy DIY gift to make for the moms, grandmoms and aunts!
However, my kids and I love making these flowers made from construction paper all the time (and it’s really good for helping with their fine motor skills too!)
Paper Towel Coloring
This next simple craft idea is SUPER basic and easy – BUT, at this moment in history, might not be the BEST use of your paper towels lol!
Just grab some markers and color the dots on a sheet of paper towels.
Just look how pretty it turns out!
For me, this would be oddly satisfying (she says as she goes to grab her markers and a sheet of paper towels).
Learn How To Draw Animals
The kids and I have the BEST time learning how to draw animals with this video below – we think we are SO artistic lol!
The cool thing is, you can use the outline of your hand to draw just about ANY animal!
Repurposed Art Projects
These are super fun craft projects to make with the kids – art projects made with repurposed bottles and other household items or… yep, trash.
