Have you discovered diy.org yet?
I'm a huge fan of this website, it encourages kids to try new things and develop their skills. There is an incredibly wide range of skills available, from Forager, Papercrafter, Writer, Chef, to Minecrafter, Animator, Backend Dev, or Game Designer!
Here are a few of the things we've been up to -
Homemade rocket pictures with pastel & watercolours (from Artventure which we've just signed up for!)
and pastel planet pictures, Earth & Venus respectively -
both for the Painter skill.
They harvested some potatoes -
Lexi made a pizza -
and a character cake -
for the Baker skill, which earned her the patch for that one!
She made a bracelet for the Fashion Designer skill -
thus completing another patch
She made a homemade sprinkler from a bottle -
for a Summerologist challenge
and some tiny treasure chests, out of matchsticks, cardboard, and quinoa -
And Eli learnt to use a mitre box for the Woodworker skill -
It's great fun, and very flexible, I just wish there was one for adults!
