Nothing gives you a greater sense of accomplishment than completing an absorbing and intricate task successfully. If you and your partner enjoy crafts and working with your hands, then embarking on a project together can be a fun way to spend Valentine’s Day.
What’s Your Fancy?
Perhaps it’s a hobby you both share, or a hobby that one of you wants to introduce to the other, or maybe it’s something you’ve always wanted to try together but never had the time for! Look for something that you can work on together and which will become a keepsake after the day itself. There are many activities, but here are a few to consider.
Build Your Dream Home…with a Model Kit
Model kits come in all forms and shapes these days. You no longer have to restrict yourself to airplanes and trains! Have fun choosing a model of a house that you could imagine living in together. Find a model kit of a vintage convertible car or any other vehicle you fancy. Spend an afternoon putting them together and painting them. Have fun talking about the life you imagine you might want to live together, let it be the beginning of a conversation about your future. There are many model kit shops in Singapore, here are a few that you can begin your search for that perfect future project together on: Hobby Art Gallery for anime and robot kits, Kawaiikoya for miniature dollhouse kits and Hobby Square for all manner of vehicles and drones.
Gather all your favourite pictures and little mementos of your time together. Design and create a scrapbook of memories. Have fun reminiscing over your dates – the good ones and the bad ones too! Take time to remember all the things that you love about each other. You can even make this your new Valentine’s Day tradition and add to the scrap book each year. If you are married and when you have children, your children can add their memories and Valentine wishes to the scrapbook too!
Light Up Your Life!
Candle making is an interesting and fun activity. Most art supply shops will sell everything you need to make your own candles. With just a little bit of equipment, you can experiment with moulded, dipped, layered and jelly candles. Decorate them with little keepsakes that represent what you most love about each other. Don’t forget to add aromatherapy scents to your candles. Fill your home with candles and finish your day with a romantic candlelight dinner for two.
