Rainy day activities in Sydney can be as varied as the weather, itself. If you’re looking for things to do that warm the house and the soul, cook up a storm. If, however, you’re looking for a more zen-style approach to your craft ideas for adults, ClassBento can help you reconnect with yourself by completely disconnecting from the world.
In a positive way, of course. Our LiveBox workshops are a fantastic way to learn new skills and discover the best Sydney workshops on offer. We understand, however, that being connected online all day can be draining, and the last thing you want from your fun indoor activities is to stay connected. Sometimes you need to unplug and just focus on you.
Our DIY craft boxes are perfect for just that: unplugging. There’s no live streaming required, and all the instructions and guidance you’ll need are in the box, along with all the necessary materials and tools. With the soft pitter-patter of rain hitting the roof and the windows, it can be the perfect atmosphere to unwind with a glass of wine and sink your teeth into a project.
Building a DIY terrarium is one of the many Sydney workshops we offer that specialises in reducing your stress by helping you reconnect with nature. The Plant Whisperer has designed a craft box that’s ideal for fun indoor activities that’ll help you untangle your stress. With everything included in the box (including three mini terrarium plants), you’ll not only enjoy the process, but you’ll be adding a touch of greenery to your house when you’re finished.
If you’re looking for ideas that involve a little less soil and a little more heat, our craft box range has you covered, too. Candle making is one of the most relaxing activities available, as it’s not just one of the best craft ideas for adults, but it smells wonderful too. Candle artisan Frosa Katsis has designed a comprehensive craft box that’ll have you making up to four different candles! With a variety of scents and oils, you’ll discover how to bring out the best in your soy wax candles, and what you’ll need to continue making them, next time you’re looking for rainy day activities in Sydney.
No matter how you like to spend your winter days, ClassBento can help you discover fun things to do this weekend in Sydney if the weather turns sour. Cosy up indoors with a candle making kit, or get the house heating up with some beautiful homemade pizza! No matter what you choose, our virtual Sydney workshops and craft boxes are ideal for staying inside and making the most of your weekend.
