    Have fun creating these school holidays with our easy DIY projects for kids! We promise they’re fun for kids of all ages, as well as you!

    DIY lip balm

    Simple DIY projects for kids | Biome Eco Stores

    Using our simple DIY lip balm recipe (young kids will need help and supervision as it requires melting ingredients on the stove) you can make an effective, nourishing, petrochemical free lip balm. Add a little peppermint essential oil for scent or keep it completely fragrance free.

    Have fun making origami

    Create beautiful objects from a single piece of folded paper – the ancient Japanese art of origami is fun, creative and a great way for kids to expand their knowledge of the world.

    Our range of origami and paper craft books include instructions to make a range of objects as well as origami paper.

    Develop patience and mindfulness, nurture a love of nature, healthy food and an understanding of the circle of life by planting some easy to grow seeds with kids. You’ll need a pot or two with potting mix or a bare area in the garden for this project. Get your hands dirty and watch your kids fill with excitement as your flowers, herbs, fruit and veggies grow.
