Do It Together: 5 Home Projects for You and Your Household Helpers

Spruce up your space & keep your kids from climbing the walls – double win!

Here are five DIY projects to improve your home and give your kids a  productive outlet for their energy.

  • Build raised garden beds
    • A garden not only gives you the benefit of fresh herbs, vegetables or flowers, it’s also a natural outdoor classroom for your kids — helping them learn measurements, basic botany facts and giving them a boost to their mental and physical well-being.
  • Give your mailbox a makeover
    • Brighten up your humdrum mailbox and give your heroic postal worker something to smile about when they deliver your mail.
  • Construct a birdhouse
    • Though birds aren’t required to shelter in place, it’s nice for them to have a safe spot to land in your backyard — and exciting for the whole family to watch as they come and go.
  • Stencil paint your tile floor
    • Want to give your tile floor a new look but don’t want to invest the money, time or intensive labor it takes to rip up and lay down a new one? While this project requires patience and attention to detail, your children can pitch in and help out to make it go a little faster.
  • Restyle your bathroom drawer pulls
    • You’d be surprised at how much of a design impact changing the drawer pulls on a bathroom vanity can have. This inexpensive DIY project is quick to complete and perfect for little hands who can help you hold the hardware while you handle the screwdriver.
