- Do an afternoon makeover on your front porch. In just a few hours, you can take your front porch from drab to bright and fabulous. The kids can help, too. One of the most stunning and easy maintenance looks is finding two matching flower pots to go on either side of the front door and welcome mat. Plant something bright and beautiful in each. One large floral like a hydrangea works well if your porch is in shade to partial shade. A combination of three to four different plants in each creates a more modern look. The kids will love helping with the flower choices and you’ll add curb appeal to your home. Sweep off the steps and pathway and add a new welcome mat if it’s looking like it’s seen better days.
- Decorate springtime cupcakes with the kids. Pastel colored cupcakes with sprinkles and all the trimmings will be a fun project with the kids. If you’re short on time, use a cake mix or buy store bought cupcakes but spend the time to make homemade frosting. It tastes so much better. Separate a buttercream frosting into small bowls and add food coloring to each for kids to frost the cupcakes. Load some frosting into plastic bags and cut off the tips to let them create grass, flowers, names, and other three-dimensional designs. Use a cake stand to show off their best ones in the kitchen.
- De-clutter an area of the home to add more usability to the room. When clutter piles up in an area of the house it adds stress and is unsightly. Usually, clutter comes when we haven’t thought through a functional solution for where things should go. Then we get lazy and it mounts up. Try tackling a small area. It could be the top of a dresser that’s stacked with loose buttons, receipts, gum, and spare change. Or it might be the front entry where gym bags, a basketball, too many shoes, jackets and backpacks are exploding into the hall. Take out what doesn’t need to be there and find a more appealing storage option for the items you need close at hand.
