8 Activities From Amazon That You Can Do Together With Friends & Family

According to the author Gary Chapman, there are 5 love languages that we use when interacting with our loved ones. These are words of affirmation (compliments), receiving gifts, acts of service, physical touch, and quality time.

In the hustle and bustle of life, it can sometimes be difficult to spend quality time with people. However, if the love language of your loved ones is to spend quality time together, we’ve got some ideas that you can try. We have searched for activities where you can have a very enjoyable time. Let’s take a look together.

1. Many of us love a fragrant candle. Imagine making one with your loved ones. With this set, you can now make a candle that will remind you of the happy times you shared each time you light it.

Everything you need to create your own scented candles is included in this package. Natural soy candle wax (480 g), 4 candle scents, 4 wax candle pots (4.2 oz), 4 100% organic cotton candle wicks and wick stickers, 1 metal stirring spoon, 4 centering devices, 1 thermometer, 1 heat-proof wax melting pot (700 ml), 1 reusable cotton bag, 1 user manual, and 4 warning labels are all included in the candle making set.

4 different candle smells can be used to create a delightfully fragrant candle. You will receive 4 10 ml-sized scent bottles: one each of lavender, sandalwood, vanilla, and rose.

Also included are 4 modern candle tins in various colors: black and gold, bronze, gold, and silver. The package makes 4 fragrant candles that generally burn for around 25–30 hours.

Superb! Wow! To say I’m impressed is an understatement. I am not an experienced candle maker, but it is a hobby that I have always dreamed of undertaking. Not only did the kit arrive in perfect condition, but it was also beautifully packaged.
The equipment is easy to use, and the finished products are nothing short of stunning! It was perfectly produced, amazingly assembled, and carefully crafted. As you can tell, I am over the moon with my purchase. I would certainly recommend this candle making kit to expert and novice candle makers alike, or anyone looking to give a thoughtful gift to a loved one. @Patrick Hagerty

2. Your hands will always be united with this kit. You simply need to follow the directions to capture this intimate moment.

4.4 out of 5

Because the material in this 3D hand molding kit is all-natural, skin-friendly, and non-toxic, you don’t need to worry while making priceless memories. The entire family can use the holding hands casting kit. Up to 4 handprints can be created with the hand-casting kit (2 adults and 2 children). The thorough step-by-step instructions will ensure your success each and every time.

This package contains a 6-liter container, 4 bamboo sticks, 2 packets of alginate with a color indicator, 2 kg of ceramic plaster, and a multilingual step-by-step manual.

Good for us beginners. I love this! I was a bit nervous buying this as I wanted to make a hand-holding decor piece for me and my boyfriend. We were a bit nervous as you do have to move quite quickly before it sets, but we didn’t break it, and it came out lovely, so I think it went well!
I would say to do what the guide says and try to hold hands loosely, as it’s hard to pull bent fingers out without damaging the top part where your wrist shape will be. You can see that some of the air bubbles were too hard to remove, but the detail that it captures, like skin lines, is amazing and so lovely. Also, nail extensions are okay! Mine lasted with absolutely no problem. @Fantastico

3. It is a nice winter evening with rain outside. You and your family want some s’mores. You believe it is impossible because it has been raining. Let us change your mind. Now you can make s’mores any time you want with this s’mores maker.

4.5 out of 5

There are no particular skills needed to use this s’mores making kit. The 2 arms of this maker hold the components of your s’mores together to maintain the integrity of the sweet sandwich while the chocolate is melting to the ideal consistency, and a water reservoir within controls the cooking temperature. Since this s’mores maker is dishwasher safe, maintaining and cleaning it are simple.

Lots of fun for rainy days and movie nights. I bought several of these and all of the kids enjoy them. It’s great when the weather doesn’t permit an outdoor fire.
It is easy to use. Some supervision is required for very young children, but 7-year-olds and up enjoy making these s’mores, and it’s a great way for them to learn to share with others. @Aunt Enn

4. There’s no need to be a chef to make sushi. This bamboo set is ideal for those who want to try making sushi because it includes all of the necessary tools.

4.6 out of 5

You need not worry about the safety of this set because it is constructed entirely of high-quality bamboo. Additionally, you will receive an instructive guide for making sushi at home through email as soon as the product ships. 5 sets of chopsticks with intricate, exotic patterns on the handles are included in this package, along with 2 sushi rolling mats, a rice spreader, a rice paddle.

Good product, beginner-friendly! I had wanted to learn how to make sushi for a long time and was looking for a set that wasn’t too complex, and this did it for me. I haven’t used the recipes or guides it came with, but I’ve made some really good dishes so far! It’s pretty simple to use, and to avoid damaging or cleaning the mats with that sticky rice, I either cover them with cling foil or resealable bags.
I have used the spreader and spoon, but I end up using my hands after a bit instead.
The chopsticks are adorable with their design and look really good next to the serving of sushi you worked hard to make! @Eleni

5. You won’t ever have to wear dull accessories once you have this exclusive package. A significant benefit is that things can be made for the entire family. Whether it’s lettered or neon-colored beads, there are many possibilities available.

4.5 out of 5

Approximately 4,600 flat polymer clay beads in 18 colors, 240 charms, including a variety of letter beads, shells, pendants, jump rings, lobster clasps, and more, are included in this set. Also included are 2 rolls of elastic string measuring 10 meters in length and a pair of scissors. Polymer clay, a kind of PVC, is used to create beads.

They have a great plasticity and durability and are non-toxic and environmentally safe. The clay beads are waterproof, so you can wear them to the beach or pool.

Good quality beads! The Showvigor Bracelet Making Kit contains everything you need to make your own personalized jewelry. The kit consists of 18 different soft clay flat beads in lovely bright colors (200 in each color), 8 shells, 8 starfish, 20 lobster clasps, 40 square alphabet beads, 40 star beads, 50 closed loops, and 50 buttons, all in a compartmentalized plastic box, together with clear elastic thread and a small pair of scissors. Since lockdown, I’ve taken up a number of craft projects, including jewelry-making, and this kit is suitable for all ages, young and not so young, to get creative and make some beautiful jewelry. It’s great fun to do once you get started. @JoanieC

6. Family and creativity come together. With the help of this clay kit, you can make anything you want while having fun with your family.

4.7 out of 5

You do not need to use an oven or anything else because this package comes with 2 1-kg bags of air-dry clay. Just be patient for 24 to 48 hours. The clay won’t break when it dries. A smoothing sponge and 5 wooden clay sculpting tools are also included in the kit, which is packaged in a reusable cloth tool bag.

With everything included in the kit, you can cut, carve, smooth, and make the ideal piece. You will have a set of 8 acrylic paints for coloring your masterpiece, as well as 2 brushes—one large for coverage and one small for details.

Good fun for me and my partner. This is a great kit. The clay is really clean and easy to work with, and it comes with more than enough for at least 2-3 decent-sized items. It also comes with plenty of paint (we actually had some left over after construction) and well-produced instructions. Overall, I had a couple of enjoyable afternoons with my partner, so it was worthwhile. This kit would probably be just as good for kids too. @Chris

7. Bath bombs are fantastic for unwinding on a self-care day, but creating them is another story. With this kit, you can make any kind of bath bomb.

4.5 out of 5

This bath bomb maker is so easy to use. All you have to do is follow the instructions, insert the ingredients, and compress. Your bath bombs will be ready to use in less than 2 hours.

Impressed! I’m very impressed with this product. So far, I’ve made 2 bath bombs. The first was not as good as the second because I had to get to grips with it first, not that it’s hard to do. The second looked great, fizzed up nicely, had a pleasant scent, and the bath water changed color. I was a bit dubious about the plastic sprinkles going down the plug hole, but it’s good to see that they dissolved!
We plan on making one a day, something my 3-year-old really looks forward to. More sprinkles could be added, but this is a minor complaint. Make sure you leave the bath bomb in the mold to dry as per the instructions. I have ordered one for my niece now. @N B Richardson

8. We long for a vibrant existence, yet many of us wear plain white clothing. It’s time to change this. Get messy with your clothes and experiment with different color schemes or patterns with your family while using this tie-dye kit.

4.7 out of 5

This tie-dye kit includes one instruction page, 8 squeeze bottles of various colored dyes, 8 pairs of safety gloves, 40 rubber bands, and 8 color packets. It is simple and enjoyable to use. Just add water, put the dye on, wrap it up, and rinse it after 6 to 8 hours. T-shirts, hoodies, socks, skirts, sweatshirts, shorts, tote bags, shoes, pillows, curtains, and many more items can all be tie-dyed to create vibrant designs.

Definitely worth buying. It was easy to mix, and all the pieces needed were included. The colors were very vibrant. I used this kit on an arts and crafts day with my 6-year-old daughter, and it was so much fun. We got so many compliments on our t-shirts when we wore them. Make sure you hand-wash your dyed clothes after the first time you wear them, so the colors don’t run in the machine, but after that they can go into the washing machine as usual. @Monica

What do you like to do in your free time? Would you rather spend time indoors or outdoors?
