ECQ 2.0 Hits: Check Out These Wooden Crafts You Can Do At Home

They’ve got wooden clocks, DIY pots, wind-up music boxes, and even a working gramophone


As we ease again into another season of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), and with Holy Week coming out, it’s nice to immerse ourselves in relaxing but productive activities to distract from the stress and anxiety of the times.


Crafts making, for one, has been very popular among kids and adults throughout the pandemic for various positive reasons.


According to a research published by University College London’s MARCH mental health network, arts and crafts can reduce anxiety and lower inflammation and stress hormones. Many other studies back up these findings, and those who engage in regular art-based activities were found to experience significant increase in overall well-being and quality of life.


Not only do arts and crafts serve as a good calming activity, but it also presents an opportunity to take a break from screens and mobile phones. With our waking hours usually consumed by laptop, mobile phone, and TV time, making time for these creative activities gives our eyes and our brains an opportunity to rest and take a break.


Crafting activities are also opportunities to bring the family together. Even though we are all staying home, every member of the family usually has their own thing. Encouraging everyone to participate in a crafting activity together—especially if it’s easy but interesting enough for everyone to participate in—makes for a great family and bonding time.
