Celebrate a Fun for All March Break with DK Canada
With February in our rear view mirrors, I am beginning to scramble with plans for that last long vacation period kids have before the end of the school year: March Break! It is great to get the kids out and about, but I know that there will be days where we will be at home. Since we do not want our kids to be zonked out by a device in their faces all day long, I have been scratching my head to come up with some ideas to keep the good times rolling. DK Canada asked me if I could find books from their vast collection of books to help create a Fun for All March Break experience with my family. Since we love crafting, I picked books I knew would keep us creating throughout the week!
These are the three titles I reviewed from DK Canada:
Paper is such a diverse medium to create some amazing art pieces. Paper Craft gives users so many ideas to make fun and creative works of art that can be used for so many things. Users are able to learn how to make gorgeous decorations, pieces to dress up different rooms in your home, cards for all sorts of occasions and more. Another great aspect of this book is that the projects showcased in this book can be done by crafters of all skill levels.
My family loves making crafts out of paper, and I was really impressed with a variety of ideas Paper Craft has to offer users. On those days where it is too cold to go outside, I think we will try to make the Paper Crowns craft found in this book and then dress them up to their own personal taste. The Cherry Blossoms idea would be nice to have around my work area to bring a bit of spring into this space. My family would really love making and having Papercut Lanterns project to add a bit of whimsy to our rooms at night. I also love that these projects can be done within a day, so they do not take too long to create this March Break.
Will you be at home with the kids this March Break or are expecting to have kids over as overnight guests? Not sure how to entertain them? The Book of Crafts and Activities is a great to have on hand to help make this time fun! This title has over 150 ideas for kids to enjoy, from campfire ideas and a flip-flop tutorial to fun snacks to create and pampering ideas, there is no shortage of fun that can be had!
My kids would enjoy making personalized pillows from the Perfect Pillows idea found in this book. They would also enjoy creating their own kites in fun designs to start flying when spring arrives. When their friends drop by, the Caramel Popcorn and Banana Bites snacks would make for a sweet treat to eat while watching a movie during a sleepover.
March Break is not just for kids. Parents can have some fun, too! I love creating decorative pieces to add a bit of flare to the rooms in my home, and Handmade Interiors shares different ideas I can try during March Break. This book is a guide that takes users through projects, from blinds and throw pillows to bedding and furniture updating.
There were so many amazing projects I want to do during March Break this year. In my bedroom, I want to create this Padded Headboard to add a bit of sophistication in this space. I would love to have the Tie Blind idea to dress up the window in my younger children’s bedroom. To make going on a fun adventure in my living room, this Teepee Tent project would make playtime more fun for the whole family.
There are so many ideas from these DK Canada titles to have a fun time for all this March Break. Each book allows for works of art to be created that serve a purpose. These titles also keep users of all ages engaged and having fun. I know my family will have an amazing March Break with these books at hand!
