Here are the best DIY projects to make them for your kids or with them that we were covering on Kidsomania during August 2014. If you’ve missed them than don’t hesitate to check them out.
School is a place where your kids can develop, learn useful things and make friends. And they don’t need to think what they should wear. Let adults think! So today we offer you to look at school outfit ideas for your son. And sometimes boys can be more fashionistas than even girls! So first of all, ask them, what they want: jeans or trousers, a t-shirt or classical white shirt. If your kids don’t have a uniform at school, you can change their style of clothes every day! The main thing is a comfort, nothing should limit their freedom. Look at the ideas below to get some inspiration!
I just want to applaud the person who came up with such a simple yet genius idea – pacifier clips. With them you’ll keep those pacifiers readily available and they won’t be dropped or lost. The supplies are cotton fabric 2 ¼ x 9 inch rectangle, fusible interfacing 2 ¼ x 9 inch rectangle, heavy string, coordinating thread and 1 inch pacifier clip. First you need to cut a piece of cotton fabric and interfacing, both 2 ¼ x 9 inches. Then cut a piece of cotton string 7 inches long. Iron the interfacing onto the wrong side of your fabric, fold it in half lengthwise and sew the long edges together. Continue at makeit-loveit.com.
Wanna add more colors to your kids’ life? Make this DIY! Just follow our step-by-step instruction and your girl will look so adorable and cute! You’ll need chalk pastels, a spray bottle, a towel and rubber gloves. Now wet the strand of hair you want to chalk. Starting at the top of the strand you want colored, gently rub the chalk pastel over the wet strand. You can also try just dipping the tip of the chalk in water and rubbing it on the hair as well. Let hair air dry. Shake off the excess pigment. When your kid will be ready to remove the color, simply wash with shampoo.
I’m a huge knit accessories lover, so when I saw these cool finds for kids from Cabbages & Kings, my heart just started to melt. If you’re looking for some scarves, leg or arm warmers, socks, hats or something else to complete you children’s winter outfits, these truly fashionable and oh-so-cozy accessories that deliver a dose of urban street style would be your perfect choice. They’re all handmade from 100% natural fiber under fair trade conditions in Peru by talented artisans. Somehow these knit accessories play suitable for the taste of a parent (I’d love to wear them myself!) and look child alike. Be sure to check out and have a great autumn/winter shopping!
No nursery can do without a mobile, so today we offer you to create this original mobile for your baby. Baby lanterns should be hung by seven hooks, evenly place in two rows on the ceiling. Center and space the hooks based on the dimensions of a standard crib since baby mobile won’t be in kid’s cradle for more than the first six to eight months. Make sure to prevent the ceiling from crumbling and screw in the hooks by sticking a small piece of masking tape over mark. After each of the hooks is up, tear off the masking tape around the hook so the white hooks will blend in better with the bluish, grayish, whitish ceiling. Add some blue ribbons and voila!
Today’s nursery doesn’t really fit any certain theme, it’s simply cheerful and bright. Mom Janette just wanted to incorporate in her boys’ space pretty much anything that she really loved and that fits this sunny and happy mood. I really love the way it turned out! My favorite piece here is probably the wall of “Things that Go” artwork, which not only looks amazing but also gives mom and the boys many precious minutes to play “where’s the tractor?” together. Everything looks so simple yet very clean and stylish. I think it’d be awesome for the kids to grow up here. What do you think?
This garland is the simplest decoration and it takes 10 minutes. You can make it with your kids, they’ll like to make their house or room more beautiful. You will need red balloons, red or white baker’s twine, scotch tape, green paper, scissors and glue gun. Blow up some balloons so they are small enough to group in small clumps as berries. With scotch tape attach a little to the balloon and stick to another. Group in threes or twos. Then cut out holly leaves in proportion to the size of the balloons. Now draw yellow veins onto the leaves. Tie the groups of berries onto the twine and leave extra twine at the front and back. Glue the edges of the leaves to the edge of the balloon and a bit to the twine to secure it in place. That’s all!
Sometimes it’s better to try looking at things from an unexpected angle and let your imagination run wild. For example, use the foil baking sheets to make simple night sky mobiles from them. Fast, cheap and pretty, right? Except the sheets you’ll need thin wire, scissors, pencil, nail and cloth. First just draw your shapes whether they’re stars, clouds or a moon on the foil, avoiding any ridges. Then cut the shapes out doing your best to keep the edges smooth. Arrange the shapes as you’d like them to be on the mobile and mark dots where you’d like to string pieces together. Read the rest of the tutorial at ohhappyday.com.
This toy will bring so much fun to you and your kids and make your kids happier! You will need napkins, string, markers, scissors, feathers, toys and rocks or stones. First, get together your supplies. Your kids can find their “passengers” for the parachute. Unfold napkins to make large squares. And then they can decorate their parachutes. After that kids tie a string to each corner of the parachute. Then, for each parachute, tie all four strings together down at the bottom, leaving extra long ties at the ends. Next the kids can tie their “passenger” to the strings using the ends. Now you and your kids can take the parachutes outside to test new creations!
