There is a finite number of things we can do to pass the time at home. 

We can read books, play with our pets, grow plants, learn to play a music instrument, water the plants, learn a new language, try to revive the overwatered plants, or watch movies and series on Netflix. 

But if you’re looking for something different, with no electricity or Wi-Fi connection or green thumb required, you might be interested in pursuing a new hobby that comes in a kit.
