When you love to do crafts with your children, you can often find yourself searching online, asking your friends, or researching in magazines, what fun thing you should all be doing next. If you have everything you need, like paints, clay, and textiles, at home, there’s one thing that you can start to do, and it won’t require any research or new ideas.
Improving your home can often take a lot of time and work. When, instead, it can be quite effortless. If you think that you are your little ones are becoming quite the experts at all things crafts, then it could be the time you tried your hands at making a few things for around the home.
Having an open plan living space can be a lot of fun. It looks great and can make a lot of your tasks easier. But, sometimes, you realize that you need the privacy that separate rooms give you. When that’s the case, instead of researching expensive options, get creative. If you have glass that separates the space, why not work on some stained glass art with your little ones to create a bit more of a divide.
Creative With Clay
Molding clay with your children can seem messy and like a lot of work. Although both points might be right, it’s also a lot of fun and can leave you with some really beautiful creations. It may take a little practice, but you can get to work on some clay molds that will come in handy in the kitchen – especially for storing things like rice or utensils.
In Their Room
If you have a set design throughout your home, you may not want to make any drastic changes to the main areas. But, there’s no reason why you can’t have fun with craft and color in your children’s bedrooms. Once you got your hands on the best beds for toddlers and a few key pieces of furniture, you might want to get creative with a little upcycling and create a toy chest with a fun theme.
One of the easiest ways to add something creative and crafty into your home, without disrupting your design too much, is to work with textiles. If you’re creating items for your living space, you can select the fabrics and let the little ones help you (or, let them choose fabrics for their own rooms). That way, you can upgrade things like cushions and throws, and have fun in the process.
If your little ones love to paint or draw, they might be interested in creating a few pieces of art for the home. You might not want to keep hanging things on the front of the fridge, so you may want to take this idea to the next level. Pick out some cute and fun frames, and work on some cool pieces of art that you can display in different rooms around the house, or even give to relatives as gifts.
