DIY project
It's important for kids to be a part of keeping their home clean and tidy, but it's also great to give them a little responsibility in its upkeep. You could help them to try their hand at putting up shelves in their room or giving it a paint -- depending on your own abilities! Remember, if it's not completely perfect, it's the effort that counts.
