6 home projects to tackle during march break

If your March break is shaping up to be more of a staycation than a vacation, you might be looking for a few activities to keep your household busy (aka out of your hair). Of course there are places to go and things to see around town, but why not put those busy hands to work on some fun and useful home projects?

Here are a few fun and functional home projects that you and your family can tackle this March break or on any weekend for that matter. Some of these home projects are perfectly kid-friendly and some are just for you to enjoy.

Projects for the Kids

These projects are great for getting the kids involved. Of course adult supervision and some help are definitely required.

“Upcycle” a tissue box

Take an empty, large-size tissue box, then add some twine and fabric and they will have an attractive storage accent. It’s never too early for kids to learn about organization, right?

Make a Photo Monogram Letter

The wooden letters and other supplies for this project can usually be found at craft stores and dollar stores.

Try using squares of wrapping paper or scrapbook paper with favourite cartoon characters on them or even a photo.  Maybe if they make them, they’ll actually use them!

>>>Pro Tip: These kids’ projects would also make great mother’s day gifts …which is coming up, by the way.

Projects for Adults

Here are some easy home décor projects that are best left to the adults, unless you have teens that enjoy DIY.
