Here’s ten DIY projects you can do at home:

Plant a garden
Spring is the perfect time to start a garden. Whether it’s flowers, herbs, or vegetables, planting and nurturing a garden can be rewarding and therapeutic. Get the kids involved by letting them help choose which plants to grow, dig holes for planting, and water the garden regularly. It’s a great way to teach them about nature and responsibility now the evenings are getting brighter and the days warmer.

Create your own herb garden
If you’re limited on space, consider creating a small herb garden in pots or containers. Herbs like basil, mint, parsley, and rosemary are easy to grow and can be used in cooking. Let the kids decorate the pots with paint or markers to add a personal touch to the garden.

DIY bird feeder
Build a bird feeder using recycled materials or simple woodworking techniques. Hang it in your garden and enjoy watching the birds visit. Involve the kids in designing and building the feeder, and then let them help fill it with birdseed and monitor the activity of the visiting birds.

Spring cleaning
Dedicate a day to declutter and deep clean your home. Get rid of items you no longer need, organise your space, and give everything a thorough clean. Make it fun for the kids by turning cleaning into a game or challenge. Assign them tasks appropriate for their age and offer rewards for completing them, an easy one is to throw them a dishcloth to clean their favourite outside toys!

Decorate terra cotta pots
Add a personal touch to your garden by decorating plain terra cotta pots with paint, stencils or permanent pens. Get creative and make each pot unique! This is a perfect activity for kids to express their creativity. Provide them with various craft supplies and let them decorate their own pots to use for planting. 

Get out in the garden
It doesn’t all have to be running around! Create a cosy outdoor seating area by repurposing old furniture or building your own. Add comfortable cushions, outdoor rugs, and string lights for ambiance. Get the kids involved by letting them help choose the outdoor decor and arrange the seating area. It can be a fun family project to spruce up your outdoor space.

DIY spring wreath
Make a beautiful spring wreath to hang on your front door. Use flowers, greenery, ribbon, and other embellishments to create a welcoming entrance to your home. Let the kids help gather materials from the garden or craft store, and then assist them in arranging the items on the wreath base.

Painting project
Refresh a room in your home with a fresh coat of paint. Choose a bright, spring-inspired colour to breathe new life into your space. Get the kids involved by letting them help choose the paint colour and giving them small brushes to join in.

DIY bug hotel
Help support local wildlife by building a bug hotel for insects like bees, ladybirds, and butterflies. Use materials like bamboo, sticks, and pine cones to create a cosy habitat. Let the kids gather materials from the garden or nearby nature areas, and then work together to assemble the bug hotel. It’s a great opportunity to teach them about the importance of insects in the ecosystem.

Upcycle old furniture
Give old furniture a new lease of life by upcycling it with paint, stain, or decoupage. Sand down surfaces, apply your chosen finish, and enjoy your unique piece of furniture. Get the kids involved by letting them help sand or paint smaller pieces of furniture. It’s a hands-on way to teach them about recycling and creativity.

These DIY projects are not only fun and fulfilling but also a great way to make the most of the Easter break at home. Sprucing up your home or outdoor space with fresh paint or flowers is also great when you’re anticipating viewings this spring.
