Wrapping up sandwiches is one. Making sure your chicken doesn't get too brown in the oven is another.

It's got everything you'd ever want from a relaxing yet pointless endeavour.

The tinfoil into sphere phenomenon has kicked off in Japan and it's been spreading like wildfire with people of all ages rolling their balls and being delighted at the end.

Apparently, this could take anywhere from a couple of hours to literal days.

We don't know how much free time you have, but we think we may have to give this one a miss.
