Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

The pandemic has caused many of us to reconsider our days at home. While we were glad to have a breather from the usual hustle and bustle, it does not take long to become bored. Fortunately, there are a number of arts and crafts projects for us to dig into. If you are anything like us, you have children of your own and you have found yourself wondering how to keep them entertained.

After all, there are only so many times that we can break out the rainy day board games. If you have already tried all of the recipes that you can think of, this is your chance to broaden your horizons. We have been making the most of our time indoors with various arts and crafts days and now we are here to pass along one of our favorite projects.

These keepsakes are growing in popularity and it is easy to see why.

These also make for a great gift if you are looking to send something special to an extended family member.

Quarantine Day 24…I saw this yesterday and knew we had to create it. Even if they drive me crazy, there’s no other…
