Coming to holiday or pension, you have a lot of time. You don’t want to bother yourself with stressful job, you also don’t want to get stress because you have nothing to do. Then, make yourself busy by some craft project ideas. Craft is regardless of age: whether you are a five years old kid or 90 years old grandparent, craft is something you can do.
As you need project to keep you busy not only in one hour but several days, even a month, generate your craft project ideas to be finished in relative long time. Origami, pencil case, and photo frame are easy, you can finish them in some hours. To get inspiration about what should be your project, take a look around your house. Do you have a lot of books? Or your cupboard is too small to accommodate all of your clothes? Or your shoes are scattered in front of the door? Then maybe you can make furniture craft. Use some used boxes, wood, or plywood. Make the sketch then build it. It will take a longer time than just hours. You might spend all day long or some days.
For a longer term, what about making a family photo? Not a printed photo as you generally find—it is easy and not really special. The first idea you can do is mosaic. From colorful beads or pieces of colored paper, cover the design of your family sketch. To get more artistic craft, make a big photos from collection of mini photos of your family members. If you decide to go with small photos, it is of course harder since it is not easy to match the color, but you will reach a higher level of proud since you need a long time to make it.
