With schools across the country finishing up their year, National Home Improvement Expert Danny Lipford has released his Top 5 Kid-Friendly DIY projects, offering parents specific, hands-on activities to engage their children throughout the summer.
As an advocate for empowering people to tackle projects around their homes, Danny has developed a list of home improvement projects that are affordable, creative, and achievable for the whole family. “Many people shy away from involving their kids in home projects for fear of difficult instructions, or accidents and injuries,” says Danny. “This list offers activities that are fun and safe for all ages. Tackling one of these family-friendly projects is a great way to keep the kids entertained, spend quality time, and make a great improvement to your home.”
Danny’s Top 5 Kid-Friendly DIY projects include:
1. Make personalized stepping stones
Let the kids make their mark by creating custom stepping stones for the yard. View the article and instructional how-to video.
2. Spruce up curb appeal with landscaping.
Gather the family and head to the local nursery for a shopping expedition. Create a new flower bed around the mailbox, freshen up the plantings in existing beds, prune shrubs.
3. Create a variety of decorative bird feeders
Wreaths, suet feeders, and traditional pine cone feeders are easy to assemble and make great additions for an outdoor space. View photos and article.
4. Paint something.
Kids love to be creative. Arm them with a paintbrush and let them tackle the primer coat with creativity.
5. Plant a family vegetable garden.
A family garden can engage kids all summer as they water, fertilize and watch the fruits of their labor grow. View the instructional video.
