Being a stay at home mum comes with a whole range of challenges and rewards. One thing that we find ourselves seeking out in the home are things to do for ourselves, rather than just chores. In this article, we have some suggestions that you can use to make things more interesting.
Taking up a hobby can be great fun, especially if you find one that you can fit around looking after the kids. There are many artistic projects that you can check out on Pinterest that will suit a beginner. These DIY projects can help you to upcycle your rubbish into things that you can actually use in the home.
Home baking is a great way to whip up some treats while you’re at home. You don’t need to go with old fashioned recipes either, there are so many Facebook pages dedicated to step by step video recipes with a twist. These include some real show stoppers, which you can use to impress your family and friends. If you’re a novice baker, don’t worry, videos will show you exactly what to do and the techniques you need.
Sometimes, as stay at home mums, we can feel a bit isolated from the outside world. A social activity can be a great way to reconnect with others and speak to grownups for a change. A book club is a brilliant activity that you can look forward to weekly or monthly. In between meetings you can read chapters whenever you get a chance and make notes on the topics you’d like to discuss next time.
Bingo might strike you as something that your gran would do, but there’s a bustling online community for it. If you can’t find the time to commit to something like a book club then this can be an alternative social activity. There are hosted rooms on bingo sites like Rocket Bingo or Mecca Bingo, in which you can chat with others and also win yourself a jackpot or two. [Read more…] about Things to do for Stay at Home Mums
