Give Your Kids Your Honey-Do List this Summer!

Calaveras, CA...It's hard to believe that summer vacation is past it's halfway point and school will be starting in just a few weeks. There are still so many things we haven't done on our Things-To-Do-This-Summer list! And it's not just weekend getaways, but those little home improvement projects that we swore we would finally get to this summer. With your kids on summer vacation, you have plenty of helpers to get through your home improvement projects in no time. I'm sure by now you've heard "Mom, I'm bored" at least a few times. Even though there is an abundance of toys, video games and family pets to occupy their time. Oh, and there is also that place called "outside" where they could go play, but you know how that goes. So, for the kid with "nothing" to do...hand them a paint brush and get creative!

Painting kids


Any kid would love to add their own personal touch to the patio furniture you were planning to refurbish. In addition to helping you paint and reupholster, they can help pick out new fabric for the cushions and a fun new paint color for the furniture.

Does your backyard fence need a fresh coat of paint,as well? That's something that a kid could do without too much trouble and a mistake could be easily fixed. Perhaps you need to make some minor repairs to your deck? Kids could help you sand down rough spots or even reseal the deck.

Getting your kids involved in repairs and projects like these is a great way to teach them some basic home maintenance skills. Not only will this teach them skills they will retain throughout their life, but they will feel like they are contributing to the overall look of your home. It gives them a sense of ownership and they're more likely to help maintain the projects they assisted you with.

But remember to put safety first... Make sure kids are wearing the proper safety gear, are supervised at all times and that they aren't working above their skill level. But most important, remember to have fun!
