Getting your children involved in DIY projects at an early age can help them gain skills and confidence they’ll end up putting to good use later in their lives. Moreso, working on these projects together can be an excellent bonding experience. Here are seven parent-child DIY-friendly projects you can enjoy doing together…
Create a DIY Fairy Garden
Gardens can be as complicated or as simple as you want them to be. This is why they’re great for a child of any age. Find a spot in your yard, add some whimsical fun, and see what you can create.
Create marble art together! Just grab some scrap paper, nail polish, and craft sticks or toothpicks.
Build a Bookcase
Teach your child basic DIY woodworking skills by building a bookshelf with them. When you finish, help them paint it a fun color to match their bedroom.
Build a Treehouse
Spend quality time in the backyard and build a treehouse. It’s a great DIY project you can do together and make it as intricate or basic as you would like. You can even find that you can reuse the materials that you already have.
Paint Some Stones
This is a DIY project that little ones will totally love. Collect some stones and paint them. The flatter they are, the better. Try painting flowers, ladybugs, or get creative and paint whatever you want. Markers also work for this project.
Build a Cornhole Set
Get ready for your next backyard barbeque. Do this by building a cornhole game set. The classic game is inexpensive and easy to make
Create a LEGO Table
Give your kid a designated space for LEGO building by creating a LEGO table. You can complete this DIY project with materials you may already have at home. You’ll be amazed by how creative you can get with the LEGO tables.
