Kids have lots of free time on March break , weekends or when there are school cancellations ( during pandemic). Parents have many activities in their mind and it has been planned long ago such as sending them to grandparents or school camps. When you run out of activities , it can be a great idea to have some simple home improvement projects to teach them and guide them to have better hand skills.

The Z generation and kids are mostly getting antisocial because of surfing on the internet and online gaming. They lose the sense of being in the real world. It can be a good , fun and beneficial way to have activities together to do home improvements together.

For example painting can be a very nice start to paint a kid's room together. He/she can choose her favorite color(s) . It can be even a good motivation to take the kids to a local paint store to let them choose their favorite paint color. The paint manufacturers have to obey the government’s regulations about ZeroVOC paint products.
