It has gotten to that point in quarantine where we as parents will do anything, literally ANYTHING, for 5 minutes of quiet with our kids. In my house, we've been busting out the crafts recently because that seems like the only thing to keep them busy and content. It also makes me feel like a better parent because they are aren't glued to the television all day.
If you're looking for an easy 5-minute craft to do with your kid, look no further! Here are 3 crafts you can can do this quarantine using your Scorch Marker, without breaking the bank.
1. Paper Airplane
Our childhoods. Recreated with a single piece of paper. This is a great craft to do with the kids. Not only is it very inexpensive, but is also a great way to stimulate the creative mind of your child. Depending on their age, they made need help with the folding, if you need a refresher here are some instructions provided by the DIY Network!
Feel free to have your child customize his/her airplane with Scorch Marker, and help them heat up their design and make it come to life.
2. Wooden Coaster
There's a lot of things you can make with wood rounds. Ornaments, wedding table numbers, coasters, etc. Coasters are fun because you can keep them out all year round!
Use your Scorch Marker to draw your design on your wood round. You can use a vinyl or plastic stencil, or can freehand it! If you are a visual person and need to see it done before attempting it at home, here's a YouTube explainer video!
Toilet paper rolls can have more than just one purpose! Make it into a telescope, or tape two together and make them binoculars for your four-year-old and go bird watching outside.
Scorch Markers work on cardboard, too! Simply apply the marker and heat your design with a heat source above 1000W or 375°F.
We hope this list of three 5-minute crafts gives you and your kids some quality time together and gives you a chance to be creative.
