DIY crafts have been slowly regaining popularity in today's households, and we aren't exactly surprised. Not only are they a great way to bond with the family, they help promote creativity as well. Check out these five easy but fun DIY projects you can do with your children at home!
1. Snow Globe Magic
Okay, we know that it might be a bit too early to bring out the snow globes, but can you really blame us for being excited about Christmas? Besides, we bet this December is going to be just as hectic as last year's, so it’s also a good idea to get at least some of the preparations out of the way. Follow DIY Network's instructions here.
2. Pebble Story
Instead of grabbing a random storybook from the shelf, why not ask your kids to create interesting subjects out of smooth pebbles and use them as cues for their next bedtime story? This helps them become more involved in the pre-sleeping ritual, which, according to research, may aid in their mental development!
3. A Dream Your Heart Makes
Is your child prone to nightmares? Maybe a dreamcatcher could help. Get your kid to help you make one with a little help from 4 Crazy Kings.
4. Master of Time
It’s not always easy to teach young minds how to tell time, but the lesson might go a lot better if you help your kids come up with their own personalized clocks. Here's an easy tutorial from Parent Source!
5. Kid's Got Mail
Letter writing may be a dying art, but you could still leave your children that wonderful legacy while teaching them basic grammar by creating a mail box of their own in their room. Check out this adorable kiddie mailbox from Crayon Freckles!
