DIY projects for kids ideas: Create wind chime. You can make your own gorgeous wind chime from just a few different sized tin cans. Gather your tins and help your child to decorate them using paint and glitter, lots of glitter. Then make a hole in the centre of each tin with a nail. Thread the string through the holes – tie a knot at the end of each piece of string and tie them together. This is a great activity to encourage your child’s creativity to shine and add some music to your courtyard or patio.
DIY projects for kids ideas: Make recycled crayons. Do you have some old, unused crayons lying around the house? We have the perfect idea for your child to make something out of these unwanted color sticks. Help your child gather all the old crayons together and break them into smaller pieces. Get out a muffin tin and spray it with non-stick spray, put the crayon pieces into each of the muffin holes in the tray. Place it into your pre-heated oven (180 degrees) and bake for about seven minutes. Remove from oven and let them cool completely. Pop crayons out of the tray once cooled, and the crayons are ready to use. Try mixing crayon colors to make more interesting, funky colors.
