DIY projects for the entire family
Having kids doesn’t mean home improvements need to go on the back burner. While children can’t help with every project, letting them help when the project meets their skill level will not only help them feel included, but it will also turn household projects into fun activities that everyone can enjoy. Here are a few projects that are kid-friendly!

Painting a Room
While the final layer should be done by an adult, letting the kids help with the undercoat is a great way to include them. They will get to feel like they played a part in making a change in your home and will be able to see that room and know they helped to make it new. If your kids are a little older, you may consider letting them help paint their room or letting them have a free wall to design as they wish.

Plant a Garden
Starting small with a window box, letting children help planting a garden has endless benefits. While teaching them the basics of gardening, they can also learn about the plants you choose and follow along on their journey of growth. Letting kids help can give them a sense of ownership while also playing in dirt. Does it get much better than that?

Cleaning Drains
While your first thought might be that this could be dangerous, don’t worry! You can clean your drains without using harsh store-bought chemicals. Your kids can help mix the non-toxic ingredients and you can turn it into a science experiment! You will just need to mix a cup of baking soda, half a cup of salt, and 1/4 cup cream of tartar. Let the kids pour half the mixture down the drain and then you can pour 2 cups of boiling water immediately after.
Whatever DIY project you decide to do with your family, it's a great time to spend quality time with your kids and making lasting memories.

There are some cleaning projects that can be instructional and hands on and others that just become a teaching lesson but don't touch.  Either way all benefit the kids as they may need to do the same when they get older

Hi Laurel,  Thanks for sharing these DYI projects.  When my children were younger we did a lot of projects together to help teach the kids work ethics, fundamental skills, and of course, responsibility.
