A Piece of Rainbow has a tutorial on how to make a t-shirt yarn rug. This would be a great project to do over the holidays. It would also make a good Mother's Day gift. If you don't have some old t-shirts you can use you can buy some at your local Salvos or second hand store. You can also buy t-shirt yarn at craft stores. You can find the tutorial at www.apieceofrainbow.com. The are instructions on how to make the yarn as well. All you need are some old t-shirts, a hula hoop, some wool and scissors.
Hey everyone, I understand that being stuck inside all holidays is enough to make any one go stir crazy so I have put together this little printable holiday book. It has Easter ideas, boredom busters, some tips to deal with anxiety, and lots more. I jazzed mine up with some washi tape and tied it together with embroidery thread but you can do what you want. You might want to put some of the quotes on the wall. You don't need to sign up to our newsletter (we don't have one yet) - just click on the download icon at the bottom of the document below. Alternatively, you can send me a message via the contact form and I will email it to you.
If you are self isolating or social distancing or just plain bored, try exercising your brain.

You can find a few more of them at https://bebrainfit.com.
