We all need few hobbies to unwind, relax, and cut off from the routine chores and excessive technology (Digital Detox).

Also, whether you are young, old, or teen, across all age groups, these activities are required for different reasons.

Like for older lot, it’s about being active and busy, and for a younger lot, it’s about spending some time not thinking about work. For kids, it’s about cultivating a focused work ethic in one activity in the times of million distractions and longer screen times!

This book would present you with minimalistic and value-packed information on these three crafts, which would enable you to start and finish your first project.
