Do you ever get high and don't know what to do keep yourself entertained?
It happens to me all the time, I'm kinda bored of the Netflix and endlessly scrolling through my phone.
So instead I've turned to creative and fun activities to do when I'm high/stoned and now I'm going to share them with you so we can kill your stoned boredom.
1. DECORATE YOUR LIGHTER
What's the one thing a pothead can't live without? A lighter.
But most of them are pretty generic and boring. If you do find that Bic lighter with a perfect design that matches your style it's only a matter of days before it disappears.
So why not get crafty and decorate your own lighters? Here are a few different ways to do it:
- Wrap your lighters in patterned duct tape or washi tape
- Paint it with nail polish
- Glue flatback rhinestones to it
- Decopage the lighter with Mod Podge and magazine clippings.
Coloring isn't just for kids!
Up until 2013ish it was hard to find a coloring book that was super detailed and had images of things "adults" wanted to color. BUT
now we live in a world where you can find an adult coloring book in almost any store you walk into.
These are a few coloring books I love (including mine haha)
Want something fun to play with in your hands and it fun to look at?
Right now Youtube has a fascination with slime, and there are like a million different recipes and a million different Youtubers making them.
If you're not into making slime there are also a million videos on the internet of people just playing with it.
Not gonna lie.. there is something fascinating about watching people play with this stuff
If you enjoyed Lego as a kid, you should still enjoy putting together the pieces as an "adult" too! And Lego sets are SOO much cooler now there's Star Wars, Simpsons... What more could a kid- I mean ADULT ask for?
5. MAKE FAN ART
It can be hard to come up with something totally original to create SO use your favourite person, TV show, movie, band, cartoon for your inspiration.
Choose a "medium" (materials) to work with, it could be drawing, painting, sculpting, polymer clay, fabric, diorama, WHATEVER your little heart desires and create based off your fave fandom.
Here's a needle felted Jake from Adventure Time that I made
6. CRAFT KITS
I freaking love kits! They come in a box and you open it up and it's all organized and there's everything there you need including materials and instructions to create something.
I know they are usually made for kids but .. who cares. Just think of it as a chance to get in touch with your inner child and create something.
7. ZENTANGLE DRAWINGS
I know Zentangle style drawings look crazy and complicated but really that can't be further from the truth.
If you look closely Zentangle drawings are just made of repeating patterns or shapes, SERiously it only looks difficult
I mean it does take some practice and hand-eye co-ordination but you can find lots of tutorials on Pinterest or grab one of these books for Amazon and you'll get tangled up in drawing when you're high.
8. MACRAME/HEMP JEWELRY
I think macrame should be cool again, let's bring it back! We can make wall decor, plant hangers, jewelry, ALL THE THINGS ON PINTEREST.. maybe that's a bit ambitious. We should probably start with a bracelet.
9. ACTIVITY BOOKS
Another "classic", I LOVED activity books as a kid! I recently bought this scratch art book, it has been a beautiful piece of nostalgia and something fun to do when I'm high (plus some of the pages were holographic.. pretty awesome )
11. POLYMER CLAY
I see polymer clay as like the "adult" play dough, that you can bake and preserve.
And I don't know what it is... but everything made with polymer clay is just so darn cute.
Polymer clay fruit? Cute. Animals? Cute. Cupcakes? Cute. ITS ALL SO FREAKING CUTE
Seriously if this post hasn't given you an idea of something creative to do when high then maybe you really aren't the creative type?
Haha I'm just kidding! I believe there's a creative activity out there for everybody to enjoy.
