4 Great DIY Family Arts And Crafts Activities

Finding fun arts and crafts ideas that you haven’t done with your family before is difficult. Especially when each new idea you find requires buying more supplies. Which is why we thought these 4 DIY’s would be a great way to utilise the things you already have laying around the house or garden. 4 Great DIY Family Arts & Crafts Activities

We’ll take a look at:

  1. Making games with sticks and twigs
  2. Cloud dough
  3. Swishy gel bag
  4. Treasure sensory instrument

Making up games using sticks and twigs

Other than the obvious sword fighting games, you can use sticks and twigs to create new games that are more fun for every family member. A great example of this is making stick sculptures with the help of elastic bands to hold them in place.

Get creative with this and ask your kids to design their own games – they’ll come up with much more imaginative ideas than us adults will.

Another idea using natural objects from the garden for arts and crafts, is to design pictures with leaves, flowers and other flat things. You can then place the end result in a frame, pressing them together with plastic panes from Simply Plastics.

Colourful cloud dough

An idea from pbs.org is to cook up a batch of coloured cloud dough. As the recipe says on their site, you’ll need:

  • Flour
  • Oil
  • Oil or gel-based food colouring
  • Glitter or any additional decoration

Your end result should look a little like this image from their website: Colourful cloud dough

Squishy gel bags

As strange as this one sounds, creating squishy gel bags are a great way for your kids to explore a new world of sensory play. For those of you who haven’t heard of sensory play, it’s exactly what you’d expect!

Sensory play is all about letting your kids explore their senses; smell, sound, touch, taste and sight. Hence, a squishy gel bag is perfect for your kids to explore touch, sound and sight. Maybe even smell, if you added some essential oils to the mix.

What will you need?

  • Leak-proof sealable, see-though plastic bags
  • Gel, washing up liquid, oil or paint (keep in mind paint will dry)
  • Glitter and any other additional textures

All you need to do, is get your kids to stick all your chosen ingredients into the bag and seal it up. It can prove handy when they’re bored, just get out their squishy gel bags and let them have fun squishing it as much as they like! As long as they don’t squeeze it so much it bursts.

You can find the full guide on making squishy gel bags here.

Treasure sensory instrument

Yet another sensory arts and crafts idea. Taken from Mumstown, you can learn about how to make one here.

In brief, you’ll need a jar and some objects to fill up the jar. All you’re going to be doing here is filling it up with seeds, rice and anything that makes a noise when shaken.

Do you have any ideas?

If you’ve got some interesting arts and crafts ideas for the rest of our reader, please don’t hesitate to tell us all about them in the comments. Anyway, have fun creating these with your family!

5 Things That Will Make Moving Easier

If only you consider these 5 tips when preparing to move 5 Things That Will Make Moving Easier

Whether you are starting out a new life or simply want to transfer places, moving to a new place is exciting. But beneath the excitement of changing your address comes the chaos and tiring things you need to do before you can settle down. To some, moving is difficult and laborious, but it doesn’t have to if you know what important things to be done.

Here are five things that will make moving easier.

  1. Buy large moving boxes or large plastic bins. Stock Up On Moving Boxes Or Plastic Bins

If you don’t have these items in your home, purchase them ahead of time before your move. These are not just plain boxes. They are your lifesaver when it comes to moving. You’ll need to segregate your home items so you won’t have a hard time placing them in their right places when you are already in your new home. Having these large moving boxes would save you big time. It is also a great way to organize your things and avoid losing important items from your house. Lastly, don’t forget to label them.

  1. Get your new home cleaned prior to your move. Have Your Home Professionally Cleaned Before Moving In

Moving from one home to another with stuff in tow is already a tiring experience. That is why if you can or if it is possible, have your home cleaned, especially the kitchen and bathroom before your moving date. This is to save time and energy once you are already there. That way, the only thing that needs to be done is to secure all the items from your old house to your new one. After a long day of moving, you might want to have a hot shower and a freshly cooked meal right there and then.

  1. Change your address. Put In For an Address Change With Post office

This means contacting not just your friends, but also your service providers and subscriptions. In order to have your life running smoothly and seamlessly after a tiring move, you should notify your service providers such as water, electricity, and telephone as well as your bank that you will change your address. You will also need to update your address in your magazine or newspaper subscriptions. If you don’t have to make a call, you can also opt to have your change of address online. You can check out change-of-address-online.com for more information on how to do this.

      1. If you have any questions about this process, maybe it would be a good idea to stop down at the local

post office in Gainesville FL

    and talk to someone there

  1. Hire a moving company. Hire A Moving Company

If you have a lot of stuff or simply have a lot of fragile valuables, the best option to make your move easier is to hire a moving company. You may be able to ask your friends or family to help you with your move, but if you want professional handlers to take care of your valuables then this is definitely the best way to go.

  1. Remember how your electronics are connected so you will know how and where all the wires should go. Remember How Your Electronics are Connected Take a Picture

If you are not a techie person or someone who have zero knowledge about electronics, you might have a hard time setting up your electronics in your new place. One way to solve this is by taking a picture of your old set-up, so you’ll have an idea how to set it up in your new home.
