Fun Crafts – Hobbies and Interests

August 15th, 2021

Hobbies and interests are fun activities that can entertain us for hours. In fact, a list of hobbies and craft activities will keep anyone busy for a lifetime.

It is safe to say that most people have hobby ideas or fun activities that they would love to pursue, but what if you do not know what hobbies or interests would captivate you?

There are many hobby projects, fun crafts, and art activities that you can personally originate and design or you can purchase hobby kits. There are so many fun activities to choose from that selecting one or two can be quite a challenge.

The thinking error, which I have observed, is people trying to select a hobby from a stereotyped list. I have watched people look at a hobbies list and try different types of art and craft activities only to be disappointed.

It becomes very expensive emotionally, mentally, physically, financially, and timely to butterfly from one hobby interest to another.

How do you select a hobby?

First and foremost, who are you? What is your personality type? Secondly, have you taken a personality evaluation of yourself lately? Thirdly, are you ready for craft activities, sport and action activities, or other types of fun hobbies and interests?

Get started by making a Christmas wish list. Draw three columns. Column number one will read I love to do, column number two will read, I like to do, and column number three will read, I will do. You many want to add a second sheet of paper listing two columns titled with I wish I could do and I do not like or want to do.

This list is a fun activity because it is a way of entering a dream world resulting in fantasy with a possibility for reality.

Man has always fantasized, wished, or dreamed that he could fly like a bird. Man went from attempting flight with manmade wings to steel wings that we see in use on jet airplanes today.

Imagine how your fantasy or dream world can be brought to life with skilled hands.

The quickest way to know your interests is to start with a Christmas wish list. It may start with…I would love to fly and to travel. But, there is a lack of funds, family or employment restrictions, or other responsibilities to restrain your wish. Do not get discouraged. You would love to fly; perhaps it can be done in the future.

Then you think building an airplane from a model kit would satisfy your flying interest, but that is not the same as flying. Also, you know that you are not mechanically skilled. No need to feel discouraged because you are now recognizing a skill that you do not have. As much as you would love to fly a model airplane, ti will not do as a hobby.

Hand gliding might be considered. That would be cool fun! Oops, fearful of heights.

An in-depth look at self discovers that kite flying would be possible, affordable and can be done by self or with family members and friends as it fits your lifestyle.

A simple solution is to review your list of columns one by one and eliminate until you decide on a few choices which you consider as good hobbies and interests which are within your capabilities.
