Make decorations

The upcoming Easter is a good occasion to take out scissors, cardboard and glue once again and make decorations. In this way, you and your children can create your own Easter baskets, flower and window decorations or already start colouring Easter eggs. We have summarised some ideas on how you can beautify your home with Easter decorations. Of course, handicrafts need not be limited to the time before Easter. Suitable spring decorations also give your home a homely touch. So let your creativity run free! One really good idea can currently be seen in more and more windows: children are making and decorating their windows with colourful rainbows out of cardboard as a greeting to other children passing by the house. In this way, even the youngest children can send a friendly hello to their friends in times of the corona crisis.   

Create photo albums

Nowadays, thanks to ever-improving smartphones, we are taking more pictures than ever before. Most of the time, however, the pictures remain on the phone memory or cloud and are eventually forgotten. So how about creating a classic and timeless family photo album again? The whole family can be involved in collating, sorting and printing the photos. In the end you will have a valuable piece of family history that you can all look back on with pride. Alternatively, you can also decorate your walls with new photos. In another article, we also summarised for you where best to display your captured memories in your home and how to stage the photos perfectly.   

Declutter to free up space and feel good

Cross your heart: when was the last time you decluttered and sorted through everything? At first glance, this appears to be an extremely tedious task for many. But not only can it be very liberating to create order in your own home. In the long run, this also makes us happier. One of the best-known proponents of this conviction is the Japanese Marie Kondo, a clean-up expert and bestselling author. Her so-called KonMari method envisages clearing out the home not according to rooms, but according to categories, and ridding oneself of all the junk that has accumulated over the years. Give it a try! You will find that a minimalist lifestyle can increase well-being. In our corresponding article we show you how to create order at home with the KonMari method


Yoga, too, is perfect for creating harmony in your own home. Not only do the exercises balance you out after a day in the home office, it is also an activity that all family members can participate in together: you will even find many online instructions for exercises that parents can do with their toddlers and babies. In our compilation of tips for your own yoga room, we will show you how to furnish your home perfectly for extensive sessions.
