Project with your kids
DIY for child's room is a great way to involve your kids in doing something creative with their own spaces. Children love making things, so projects are a great way to spend time with your children. DIY and recycling projects can also teach your children a valuable lesson on the benefits of recycling and helping the planet. Here are just a few simple ideas for getting you (and your little ones) started on having fun - making cool things for your kid’s bedroom.
Fun, funky storage
Still have some of those paint tins you used to paint your kid’s room’s walls? Great, why not buy some more paint, watercolors will do this time! Any colors you and your child like. Put some old newspaper down or dustsheets down and paint the old paint tins in different colors. Put them up on the wall (this part should be done by a parent or responsible adult supervisor) and you have yourself colorful, fun storage for toys and knickknacks. Add cans and vegetable boxes to the same wall for a cool variety of shapes.
Check in with your local hardware store or even supermarket on where you might find or buy a used pallet for cheap. Ask for quarter sized or small pallet. You'll probably need to sand it down beforehand. Leftover wall paint will work nicely for colour. Next, you’ll need a drill with a thick drill-bit to make a hole through each of the four corners of the pallet - top and bottom. A sturdy and thick rope will be used to pull through the four holes of the left side of the pallet, knot the bottom of the rope securely to the bottom of the pallet at the front and back ends. Then do the same on the right side. Use two strong wall hooks to hold your new pallet-swing from the ceiling.
Give furniture character
You’ll love this idea for an easy and fun way to spruce up your child’s bedroom. Buy some wacky socks or use your child’s used socks. Match, mismatch, whatever you prefer - pull the socks up over the feet of a chair, a table - anything with legs and voila! Funky foot furniture sorted.
These were just some examples of the creative ways in which you and your child can make, design and build together. Have fun and you’ll never run out of ideas. Use pallets in any number of creative ways from making a vertical garden to swings for indoor and outdoor fun!
