Decorating With Kids: 15 Ways to Make it a Family Affair

I have a three-year-old and a one-year-old, and since becoming a dad I’ve learned that kids want to be involved in absolutely everything their parents are doing.

No doubt, we’re all crazy busy and can’t safely involve our little creatures in everything we do – but the biggest wins I’ve had recently have involved turning productivity into quality time with my boys. From custom art pieces to kid-friendly DIYs, decorating with your kids can be a fun and meaningful way to keep them busy and knock off some stylish to-dos. After all, the days are long but the years are short – so let’s make ’em count!
