When was the last time you made a mess with your family just for the fun of it? Aside from regular celebrations and traditions, embracing spontaneous moments and going outside of the box can make your family bonding activities special.
But for some parents, the fear of getting tough stains or stubborn dirt on clothes or home linen is discouraging. If this sounds like your household, don’t worry: you can let loose with the powerful cleaning capabilities of Breeze.
Formulated to carry the brunt of the work when it comes to stain removal, Breeze Power Machine Liquid Detergent swiftly dissolves in water to break down dirt and ensure deep cleaning. With Breeze, it’s all work for your washing machine and all play for your family.
With stains being the least of your worries, you can concentrate on creating irreplaceable memories with your family. Need some fun ideas? We have a list of creative, kid-friendly bonding activities that makes the messy aftermath worth it.
Paint a sidewalk chalk mural
Even drab gray concrete can become a canvas of possibilities with a creative mind. Bring color to the streets for a day by creating a sidewalk chalk mural with the family! All you need are chalk sticks, or a DIY washable paint mixture of cornstarch, water, and food coloring. After you’re done illustrating your masterpiece and taking pictures, you can wash the mural away with water and save the blank street canvas for another art-filled day.
Play outdoor sports
Want to fire up a little friendly competition? You can head to the great outdoors to play sports. Team games like soccer or volleyball are classic choices, or you can all get in touch with your inner child by playing street games like patintero or luksong baka. If you want to take it a step further and go on a trip, a kid-friendly hiking route will also be an intimate way to experience nature.
Experiment in a DIY home lab
Nurture your children’s curiosity by setting up your own home lab. Explore DIY experiments online with your household items and learn new things together. For example, this Walking Water activity lets you talk about the relationship of primary and secondary colors, while this Fake Snow creation lets you replicate the joys of winter by making little snowmen and other “snow” sculptures. Who knows, you might just be raising a scientist in the making.
Grow a home garden
Here’s another activity in the vein of science: gardening. Not only will you be able to add beauty to your home, but you can also teach your children important life skills like responsibility and environmental awareness. If lack of space is a concern, you can start small by making a mini herb garden that fits into a plant box with beginner-friendly greenery like basil or mint. Another bonus – fresh ingredients for your family meals!
Craft creative planters
In addition to your home garden, you and your little ones can also let your creativity run free through your planters. Make a day out of picking out perfect vases or vessels that will become your canvases, and then paint or embellish them to your heart’s content. If you want to go the extra mile, you can even recycle plastic bottles and craft a planter with them. You can bond with your family while also teaching them that avoiding waste can be an opportunity for fun.
Whichever project you choose, Breeze will be there to clean up the stains after. Just like the brand’s motto of “sige sa mantsa,” dirt and stains don’t have to limit you and your family anymore.
