Fun DYI activities with kids

Posted on April 22, 2016

Try these fun activities with your child. It is always great to bond over crafting something lovely together. As a bonus, it will help to develop your kid’s creativity and help you de-stress.

Wear flowers in your hair

With everything blooming, springtime calls for flower crowns. Making a flower crown is easy and fun. Once your pretty crafts are ready, you can organise an outdoor photoshoot wearing your flower crowns. Once you master your crown-making skills, you can try using real flowers.
