The holidays can be a very exciting time for the whole family, especially if engaging plans are made that will include everyone in the household. There are plenty of different projects that you can carry out around the house in order to improve your holiday experience. Kids and adults alike can take part in different activities that not only provide a lot of fun but can also tighten the bond between the members of the family. There are plenty of different activities that your family can all enjoy together.
Painting can be a lot of fun for the whole family. It provides a medium for children and adults alike to express themselves and their emotions in a creative and artistic way. Who knows: you might be able to unearth your child’s hidden artistic talent! Here are just some of the many DIY holiday painting projects that the whole family can take part in.
Window painting can be immense fun if you engage the whole family. Not only will it significantly improve the aesthetic appeal of your windows, but it will also allow your children, and you, to express themselves on a blank canvas. The windows looking outside the house can be painted in a variety of different ways.
You will need to buy some tempera paint (it sticks to the glass properly) in order to paint the windows. All you have to do is assign each kid a different window and start painting. It can be a lot of fun for the whole family, and you can compare the results at the end of the day. There are many different things that you can paint on the windows, ranging from snowflakes, scenery, Santa Claus, reindeer and a lot more! There’s really no shortage of options available when it comes to painting the windows. Just make sure that you use tempera paint because the ordinary paint will peel off due to the changes in temperature. Tempera paint is pretty cheap and readily available in the markets, so you won’t even have to feel that you are going out of the way to make preparations for painting the windows!
If you have a wooden shed outdoors, you can utilize the holidays to start painting that as well. Painting the shed is another fantastic way to engage the whole family in a fun activity. With the passage of time, the paint on the wood is likely to start peeling off. Because the shed is located right in the garden, it can put a damper on the aesthetic appeal of the whole house.
Painting the Fences
If you have a fence running around the house, you can also get it painted to a color of your choice. Since the whole family will be around, you don’t need to engage a professional painting company. It doesn’t require any sort of expertise either; simple up and down strokes are all that are required to paint the fence in the garden to any color of your choice.
