I have to keep my hands busy while on video calls so I’ve tried out a lot of fidgety things. Here are the ones I like the most:
- Silicone slap bracelets – these are surprisingly engrossing, especially if you have more than one.
- 256 popper grid – the tiny ones get boring fast, but I can spend hours fiddling with this big fella.
- Expanding pop tubes – only downside is that they’re pretty loud if you yank em.
- LEGO bricks – tried and true, just grab a handful of em and you’re good for a while.
Or you could learn to crochet, but that felt like work after a while for me.
