5 fun DIY craft activities to enhance your bond with little ones
1. Pack a white bedsheet, some watercolours and head towards the playground:
Spending a day with your little ones at the playground could be the most memorable and crafty one. Spread out the white bedsheet on the playground, no, not to lie down. Instead, give your kids water colours and ask them to draw out whatever they feel like. Make sure you tell them that it doesn’t matter if they colour up themselves and even their dresses. It is a fun short-trip and they can have their gala time.
2. Making Yarn Dolls
