Involving Your Children in Home Weekend Projects
Weekends Projects will keep you and your children busy especially during the rainy days when you cannot get out for a picnic or other outdoor family activities.
Involving children in easy home projects will keep your home clean and beautiful at the same time you can teach your children learn about homemaking instead of just letting them sit and click the mouse of the computer all day long.
Here are suggested weekend projects for you and your children.
Experiment with new layouts. Ask your children ideas on where to place or rearrange furnitures in their bedroom or in the living room.
Decorate your children’s bedroom
Brighten up your children’s room, add a splash of color using non allergenic and odorless paint on the wall. Put on glow in the dark stars and moon on the ceiling, change the curtains or window blinds according to their preferred color or add a character to a plain wall by making a collage of their favorite photos. Decorating will be fun and full of excitement for children especially when you give them the freedom to consider their ideas in choosing the colors and accents for their bedroom.
Do some art works
Bring out those travel souvenirs your family bought during your family holidays. Let your children make memory jars filled with tickets, keychains and other souvenir objects or create an album of travel postcards. If your children enjoy doing artworks like painting, get a handful of stretched canvasses and paints and let your children make an abstract painting and hang them on the wall side by side like a gallery.
Transform and organize closets
Sort clothes according to categories such as sweaters, jackets, shorts, pants, shirts, etc. Let your children decide to keep only what they want and need. Put hand me down clothes in a big box and pass or donate them along to charity afterwards. Teach your children to assign a shelf for each garment category for easy find so as to stay organized. Fold or hang clothes on the rod accordingly.
