We know. This sounds like hard work. But, if you think of it more as a creative project rather than a home decorating one, it truly is something fun and cheap to do with your family this weekend.

Buy a bunch of small cans of brightly-colored paint, some painters tape, gather together some newspaper for the floors, pick a wall you don’t mind being altered, and let your children (and yourself) go wild!

Rather than pick a theme, just have fun. Your mural will be something that you will always look back on as a great time spent with the family, so it will be a beacon of relaxation for years to come.

Tip: Don’t try to control what happens too much. Give everyone their freedom to express their true artistic side.
