Fun Family DIY Projects
Having some time with your family can be very difficult. With work and school playing a big part in family life, spending quality time together is very rare. However, when you do get some time together, consider doing a fun DIY task which will entertain the whole family.
Build a Tree House
Having a tree house in your back garden is many children’s dream. It’s somewhere they can escape to when they want some time to themselves. If your garden is big enough to have a tree house in it, then definitely consider building one. It’s a great DIY project which will excite your children as they’ll be getting some space for themselves.
When building the tree house, be sure to use polycarbonate sheet for the windows. This is better than glass as it’s less likely to break. Make sure you don’t build the tree house too high, as it will make accessing the tree house very hard.
Before you even begin building the tree house, make sure you’ve checked the local rules and regulations to ensure you’re allowed to put something like this in your garden. Also, be sure to have the tree inspected to ensure it’s able to hold the tree house’s weight
Re-Design Your Child’s Bedroom
Re-designing your child’s bedroom is a great DIY project which the whole family will love to do! It’s a chance for your children to get very creative and choose items, paint colors and furniture for their room.
Start with an idea book. What theme would your child like? You can start to gather ideas through Pinterest and decide what theme/ style your son wants in his room. Once you have a theme in mind you can then start to sketch out the new floor plan for the bedroom.
To keep it cheaper, try and incorporate items and furniture which you already have in the bedroom. However, make sure to get some new bits and pieces in order to give the room more character and a newer feel.
Baking a Cake
