Staying home especially during these tough times can be pretty boring. I mean only groups of 5 are allowed and we have to put on masks. Back then before the pandemic hit, we do not have to worry about social distancing, and we can socialise with almost everyone.
Despite having to stay home, we can still engage in fun activities and bond with our family members. Get your hands on some of these DIY kits and engage in fun stay home activities with your family.
