How to do DIY Projects with Your Kids

Some people enjoy having their own DIY projects while some prefer buying the already formed stuff. Not many people realize that DIY works can actually be fun and enjoyable. It sharpens your creative side, it helps to develop your imagination, and it is a way to release stress and pressure. If you are able to tag along your kids in doing DIY projects, it would be even greater because there are some benefits that you and your kids can achieve together.

Greater Bonding and Quality Time Together

DIY projects aren’t good to create new stuff in the most affordable ways, but they are good to create great bonds between you and your kids. Never mind about the mess; you should be ready with the mess when you decide to have a DIY work together. Not only your kids can learn creative and new ways in creating stuff, they will also find you somewhat friendlier and cooler. I have made several craft projects with my kids, and they somehow find me cooler – if I may presume. They admit that they feel more comfortable talking or discussing things with me after we have been involved in those projects together. Don’t be too strict with rules when doing the projects; remember, it should be fun and enjoyable, not stressful or full of pressure.

Teaching Them Positive Things

You can teach them about nature and how they can care for it. Introduce them to the concept of reducing, reusing, recycling, and repurposing stuff that are scattered around the house. You can teach them about the importance of doing these things and how their actions can affect the environment; it is okay to let them know about global warming – just make sure that you use simple words. Get together and find the stuff you don’t need from the attics. Creating cool shoulder bags from old and unused jeans can be fun, or making a V-neck with patterns from plain white T-shirt can be fun too!

Not only will they learn about self-sufficiency, they will also learn about being resourceful. My kids learn that not everything can be bought in the market. When we can make things on our own (and we can even create one-of-a-kind item), why bother spending money for the stuff out there? So far, they have created their own tote bags, different pouches, container boxes, and even hair pins and accessories. They are also super creative. When they want to create tote bags, and they can’t find old jeans, they make patches from old fabrics and sew them together!

Nurturing Their Imagination

You can start by showing them what to do and they can follow you. Start by giving simple instructions. But as time passes by, you will start noticing that they have their own ideas – they may suggest new ideas, other patterns, or even other designs. You will be amazed of how their imagination knows no boundaries or limits. Let them explore every possibility; now it is time for you to sit and observe. Your job is now to provide assistance and guidance; let them do the things they like.
