If you are finding the Coronavirus dominating the news and beginning to seriously affect your daily life, here are some simple ideas to help you through the crisis.
3 ideas to help you through the Coronavirus crisis
1- Don’t send germs through the post!
All that licking and sticking when you send a card or letter? (Not that I’m totally sure that this is a method of transmission of the virus but why take the chance.)
Instead send a Pigeon Letter
Pigeon letters need no licking and can be sealed with a self adhesive postage stamp. With lots of pretty patterns to choose from, Pigeon letters look great and will bring a smile to the face of anyone stuck in self-isolation. Write your letter on the inside, fold your Pigeon, seal with a self-adhesive stamp and send your Pigeon flying through the post. No germs included!
If you do want to send cards then send them ‘spit-free’ with a Wax Seal Kit
Now is a great time to get yourself addicted to wax sealing your cards. Believe me, once you’ve started melting and stamping with a wax sealing kit you will want to put a seal on everything!
Which one will you choose? I recommend starting with a heart in an envelope as shown in the picture. But you also might like a smiley face, paw prints or maybe a cupcake.
2- No toilet roll left? No problem!
How about some pretty Tissue Paper?
Here you’ll find lots of tissue paper with pretty patterns and designs.
If you find the supermarkets and corner shops are bereft of loo roll then do not despair. You could have flamingos or tropical birds. Stars or stripes. Zig zags or polka dots.
Whatever your personal hygiene preference our tissue paper will brighten up any bathroom.
The only difficulty we can see is that you might find it too beautiful to use!
3 – Bored in self-isolation? Get creative!
Don’t go stir crazy. Instead get your creative juices flowing and encourage your mindfulness.
Hang in there, it’s only a few days. How about making this gorgeous sloth to hang out with you in your solitude? Each of our papercraft kits will take several hours to complete so your time in limbo will seem like no time at all and you’ll have something to show for it at the end. If a sloth isn’t your thing, check out the flowers or some of the other animals available in our Paper Craft Kits
If there are a few of you stuck for something to do then you need a Colour in Tablecloth.
Great for all ages, big enough to cover your table and with space for everyone to find their own bit. Work together to create a masterpiece. Brighten up your mealtimes (even if it is the 5th time you’ve had pasta this week because that’s all you have left in the cupboard).
All of our paper craft kits and colouring in will provide you with hours, if not days of creative mindfulness and relaxation.
So don’t let the Coronavirus get you down. Find something to create and fill the time. Send a germ free letter or card to brighten up someone’s day. And definitely don’t get caught short!
