6 Fun DIY Projects You Can Make With Your Family
If your to-do list is full of home improvement projects, turning them into a fun family affair is a great way to get them done. Working on DIY projects together as a family teaches new skills to your kids and creates unforgettable memories.
So grab your tools and try out these six family-friendly DIY projects:
Marble art with nail polish
Gather nail polish, scrap paper, toothpicks, and craft sticks in an airy space. Fill a plastic tub with warm water and pour in the nail polish. Lower a box onto the water’s surface to create exciting artwork.
Bookcase or a toy box
Teach your kids the necessary woodworking skills and work alongside them to build a bookshelf or a toy box. Once you are done with the woodwork, paint it together with exciting colors. Your children can use it for years to store anything from books to sports equipment.
Although it requires time and effort to build a treehouse, it’s a fun and constructive activity to involve your family in. If you don’t have a tree that can support a treehouse, try building a free-standing version that can fit anywhere.
Bird feeders are the best way to invite wildlife into your home. It’s a small and quick project that you can complete on the weekend.
Plant a garden
If you love being surrounded by nature and enjoy fresh, home-grown produce, gardening can be a rewarding family activity. Visit your local garden center to pick out seeds and let everyone plant them into pots. Nurture the plants together and harvest them as a family.
Solar pathway lights
Brighten your house’s exterior with environment-friendly solar lights and teach your kids the importance of sustainable alternatives. Purchase solar lights online at your local hardware store, and help your children place them evenly along the edges of your driveway, sidewalk, or garden.
