5 Hobbies For Moms, When Scrapbooking Isn’t Your Thing

As a mother, it’s easy to lose a little bit of yourself in the day to day tasks.  You focus so much on the needs of others – the kids, the hubby, the house – that you don’t always remember to take some time to do the things that you love to do too.  However, setting aside some “me time” and participating in an activity that brings you joy is a much needed thing for moms.  Moreso even than having a shiny stove or having all the laundry folded and put away.  If it’s been so long since you’ve done something for yourself that you don’t even know what to do – this contributed post is perfect for you!  Check out these five hobbies for mothers that might spark a fire of delight down in your soul.

 

 

When you’re a mom at home, then the day to day routine can become a little bit of a drag. Doing the same things day in and day out can take its toll. Which is why it is important for moms to be able to have some of their own space from time to time, and do something that they really enjoy. If you think that you never have the time for a hobby, then it is time to make it a priority. It can give you a different focus aside from your children, and could even turn into something that gets you socializing or making money. So if you’re looking for something new, here are some ideas of hobbies that might work for you.

 

 

Gardening

If you have an outside space, then taking it on, owning it, and doing something with it could be just the right thing that you need to get your mind ticking over. You could create a herb garden, plant some veggies, or simply care for the existing flowers and shrubs. It can be extremely rewarding and enjoyable as a hobby.

 

Sewing

No doubt you have some basic sewing skills. But when was the last time you did a cross stitch sampler or made yourself something like a skirt or an apron? You might need to look for the best machine to help you to hone your skills. But with so many tutorials online and in video format, it can be a simple skill to master. You just need to some time and patience.

 

Photography

No doubt since becoming a parent you are always snapping pictures of your children. But why not read up a little more about it, to make sure that you’re taking the best pictures that you can. You could take an online course or simply read online. Learning to edit well is a very good skill to have too. So if you’ve got an eye for detail and are a bit of a perfectionist, this could be the hobby for you.

 

Cake Decorating

If you’re a stay-at-home mom, then you might find that you are often baking cakes with the kids. It passes the time, and hey, it tastes good, right? But what if you then learn some tips and tricks to decorate cakes with? It could be fondant figures to ombre fishtail icing. With children and plenty of birthday parties going to be happening over the years, if you can decorate a cake well, you’ll save yourself a lot of money over time.

 

Join a Sports Team

You might miss the friendship and camaraderie of the workforce, so perhaps a sports team could help with that? You also get the benefit of getting fitter and enjoying a sport that you love. If team sports aren’t really your thing, but you enjoy being active, then training for something specific, like a triathlon, for instance, could be just the thing that you need to get you doing something outside of the house.
