Things to do in Lockdown 2.0
Here are three things you can do in lockdown 2.0. If you are anything like me; you like to keep yourself occupied. Finding yourself with more spare time than you are comfortable with is a bit of a daunting prospect. However, I have three things you can try your hand at; and they may even get you ahead of the game for Christmas!
The Pesky Partridge Craft Kit
The craft kit comes with everything you need to create your own tweed decorations; all you need is a pair of scissors and some sweet treats! (Don’t worry I’ve got your back -keep reading!) These are perfect to hang on your Christmas tree or to use all year round.
Visit their website to place your order!
Following on with a bit of a crafty theme here; decoupage is perfect for creating meaningful gifts for loved ones. Whilst you can purchase loads of styles of boxes, frames, animal shapes… The list is endless!
Decoupage is also the perfect opportunity to upcycle old gift boxes or anything you have lying around. All you need is some decoupage paper and some mod podge! These are usually available in your local craft shop; however being in lockdown you may need to order online.
Why not upcycle some old gift boxes; and make a few sweet treats to put in side. They will make perfect gifts to give at Christmas; or give to neighbours etc to show you care at this difficult time.
Tiffin Tray Bake
If your anything like me, you are no Mary Berry; however it doesn’t mean you can’t have a little go at making a no bake, tray bake! This tray bake is so easy to make and tastes divine!
- Three tablespoons of caster sugar
- Three (generous) tablespoons of golden syrup
- six teaspoons of cocoa powder
- 150g butter (cubed so it melts faster!)
- 225g of digestive biscuits
- 200g of your choice of chocolate
Melt together the sugar, golden syrup cocoa powder and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water. Place the biscuits in a secure bag and crush the biscuits up into crumbs. Once all the ingredients are melted; take the bowl off of the boiling water. Add in the crushed biscuits into the bowl and mix together.
Once it is all mixed together, pour the mix into a tin lined with grease proof paper! Flatten out the mix with the back of a spoon.
Melt the 200g of chocolate in the bowl over the boiling water; once it is all melted, pour over the top of the tiffin mix and spread evenly. Why not add some Smarties or Maltesers on the top before the chocolate sets; the choice is yours!
Place in the fridge on an even surface to set!
