B&Q Summer Fun

We are coming to the end of the long summer holidays.  If you are running out of fresh ideas for things to do with the children, DIY giants B&Q have come to the rescue.  They have asked real children what they want to do when school is out and have come up with 20 top ideas for fun filled mini-DIY activities.

From building a wigwam, to making their bedrooms glow in the dark to planting a herb garden to building a sandpit, the kids came up a whole range of exciting activities to do whatever the weather.

Check out the kids' ideas in this lovely video from B&Q.  I love their creativity...such fabulous projects for parents to do with their children.

B&Q have made a list of everything needed to make the children's ideas a reality, which can be found on their Facebook Summer Fun page.

My favourite activity idea is to make a Magnetic Wall perfect for a kid's bedroom or even a kitchen to stick up photos, drawings or notes.  

What you need to create a magnetic wall:

  • Magnetic primer
  • Masking tape
  • Paint brush
  • Foam roller
  • Old clothes

Materials are available from

B&Q have sent us an adorable little watering can containing a £50 gift card so we can get stuck in to our own DIY project.  I love how the unique packaging makes giving a gift card something really if you are stuck for a present for someone...this would be a great idea!

*I'll let you know what we decide to do and keep you updated with our own DIY project!*
