Fun And Unusual Things To Try When You’re Bored

Nobody likes feeling bored, and yet we all feel that way sometimes. Whenever you feel bored, it’s always worth trying something new to see if you could have a new hobby or learn a new skill! If you’d like some ideas, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some fun and unusual things you can try!

Making Clay Charms

Playing with clay can be a lot of fun, but it’s important to remember that it isn’t play doh. It’s not a toy, so make sure you’re careful with it. Making clay charms can take a while, but with practice, you can start making anything you like. You could make mini ice cream cones and lollipops. You could even make replicas of some of your favorite cartoon characters. Make sure you find a clay that you like to work with; some are hard, and some are soft. There are a few other tools you can use too, such as a sculpting knife, toothpicks, and liquid clay. You can attach your charms to bracelets, and even move on to making things like beads and pendants when you feel confident.

Make sure you follow the instructions that the manufacturer has given you when your creation is complete. You will need to bake your clay in the oven, but it’s important to take precautions to ensure it doesn’t burn.

Making Unusual Wall Hangings

There are so many ways you can make unusual wall hangings. A popular method that people are using at the moment is different colored types of wool all knitted and crocheted together to create a sort of pretty mess that you can hang as a feature point in your home!

If you find your own techniques and ways of doing these things, you could end up with quite a lucrative business opportunity.

Learning To Play A Fun Instrument

Playing an instrument can be a lot of fun if you’re a music lover. Let’s face it, it’s a great way to impress your friends and the opposite sex too! The instrument you choose will be totally down to your taste in music and what you feel like playing. Some would love to be able to play the guitar, but others prefer to start out with something small, like the ukulele. Don’t be fooled though; just because it’s small doesn’t mean that you’ll learn it in a week or two! There are lots of tutorials you can find online to help you play your instrument. It’s never too late to get started, so don’t worry about things like your age.

Intuitive Painting

Intuitive painting can be a lot of fun, and you don’t need any skill to do it. Artists such as Jackson Pollock made this technique famous. You don’t paint a random picture, but you certainly don’t think about where your brush is going too much. Just paint where you feel, and see what happens.
