  • DIY Home Repair Projects To Do With The Kids

    Looking to get some jobs done around the house this weekend? How about getting the kids involved? Take a look at some of these Do-It-Yourself projects that you can do with your kids, and if you need any assistance, be sure to contact your Cleveland Contractors Reilly Painting:

    Painting. Painting is an easy and fun project to involve the kids. Teach them the basics of painting a smooth and drip-free layer with a brush or roller and let them go wild. Keep the kids away from the edges and any blue tape. When they're done they can hit the shower while you do the trim.

    Building from a kit. Woodworking can be a little overwhelming, but if you're building from a kit, you can cut the time and effort required down to a more manageable size. Try building a playhouse, shed, stool or birdhouse. If your kids are old enough, let them handle the tools. They have to learn anyway, and a few successful turns with a hammer will build confidence.

    Planting. Gardens are magical places for children and yours can easily help with planting, from first picking out bulbs and flowers to keeping them thriving. Kids love watching their own creations grow and take on life of their own. Get your kids involved early on by asking them what flowers they like — you can even designate a portion of your yard for your child's own personal garden. Take them with you to pick out plants, teach them your favorite gardening techniques and then hand them a shovel. Just make sure you keep handing them the watering can after the planting's done.
