Cool and Creative DIY Projects You Can Do with the Kids

Are you the type of parent who is always looking for something fun, creative, and unique to do with the kids? DIY projects can be the perfect solution, as they give everyone a chance to let their creativity shine, and you’re left with something that everyone can be proud of. To help you in your search we’ve put together a variety of fun, cool, and creative DIY projects that are perfect for doing with the kids. So, let’s get straight to the fun.

Make Your Own Greeting Cards

How many times a year do you find yourself writing out birthday cards, congratulations cards, cards for special events, etc. Buying all these cards not only adds up, but it’s time-consuming searching those racks trying to find that perfect card for the occasion and recipient. Why not turn this into a fabulous DIY project opportunity?

Thanks to the Adobe Spark, you can create free printable greeting cards right on your own computer. There’s no need for you, or the kids, to have any sort of design experience. This tool is made to be user-friendly, so even the most non-tech person can use it with ease. You can personalize the card with the theme, pictures, the size, and text that you include. Once everyone gets the hang of it, the kids will be able to do it all on their own.

Become a Fashion Designer and Create Your Own Jewelry

For many kids, a big dream is to become a fashion designer. At a young age, they see fashion as a fun and creative outlet, so why not encourage this and let them create their own line of jewelry. You can go ahead and purchase the supplies you need at a local craft store and get started, or you can start by enrolling in a class.

Nowadays you’ll find all kinds of jewelry making starter classes. These usually act as a basic introduction to the hobby, and show you such things as how to attach clasps and fittings.

Create Wall Art for the Home

Here’s a project that doubles in the cool factor as it allows kids to be creative, and it provides you with some fabulous décor pieces that cost a fraction of what you’d have to spend at the store. Rather than shop around for those perfect pictures to hang in your child’s room that fits their theme and personality, why not let them create their own wall art?

This project requires a few canvases to work on, paint, paint brushes, and a place to spread the materials out and get creative. Kids should be encouraged to paint whatever it is they like, as there is no “right” or “wrong” way to do it. You could even make it a yearly activity so they can update the look of their room and showcase how their skills are advancing.

These types of creative DIY projects are not only great for their imagination, but are also the moments that they will remember and cherish as they grow older.
