Finding family-friendly DIY projects
What are some winter home improvement projects that are family-friendly? What are the projects that are safer for children to participate?
Painting is the most family-friendly project out there. And interior painting in the winter is always a great way to spruce things up.
Take time to cover and mask areas that you do not want covered in paint, as children will be learning and may spill a bit.
I recommend using water-born paints with Low VOCs such as Clark+Kensington. When using this type of paint the only real worry will be your children getting up on a ladder, which is OK to let them try as long as you are right there with them to keep them safe and guard against falls.
While the paint job might take a little longer to complete, the pride your kids will have knowing they were part of the process is priceless.
