Crafting is a fun way to make things, often for less, but certainly for the satisfaction of displaying your own work.
From sewing, to knitting, to decorating, to basketry, to designing, to painting, and much more - you can keep your finished products or sell them in shows or online. I have many successful friends who sell their creations and make a good living at it. Do it yourself - save money!
Crafts are a fun way to interact with children. You may be able to make things to sell, as well - at crafts fair, online, on Pinterest, or to friends.
