Po-tay-to. Po-tah-to. It doesn’t matter which way you say it – there are just some days where you don’t want to leave your couch for anything. Whether from a lack of motivation or you just need rest, there’s nothing wrong with spending the day in comfy clothes among your plushest pillows. My friends and I have had several movie marathons (Lord of the Rings extended editions, anyone?) where we spent the entire day in sweatpants staring at the TV with glazed eyes and stuffing our faces with food.
This advanced level of lazy isn’t for everyone, however. A lot of people can’t spend an entire day without doing something even if they don’t particularly feel like it. They feel as if it’s a day wasted if they haven’t accomplished something, no matter how small. This is where our collection of easy craft ideas comes in! When you have a new show to binge watch, but you can’t fathom the idea of doing absolutely nothing, then you can always make something from these easy crafting ideas. There is something for everyone on this list, which is perfect if you’re being lazy as a group or if you’re just picky about which crafts you make. From a calm day of coloring to emptying out your yarn stash, you’ll be able to find something to make on your lazy day.
One of my favorite things to do is to crochet a gift for someone while I’m watching a movie or TV. It gives me the satisfaction of doing something productive with my hands, but it’s also a soothing activity so I’m still able to relax and enjoy my lazy day. As an added bonus, if someone asks me what I did all day, I don’t have to sheepishly tell them I spent the entire day watching Outlander (again). Instead, I can show them the beautiful scarf I made them or the coloring page I filled in and distract them from my chronic laziness.
