A great way to bond with your kids is to do some activities together. It could be anything like sports or going out together or doing chores. But if you are looking for some activity that is relaxed and do not require too much effort, it would be arts and crafts. It might get messy at times, but it is something that will not only enhance both of your creativity, you will have time to spend together and help one another.
The thing about arts and crafts though is not only it is messy but the materials are costly at times. But the beauty about making crafts is that you can use about anything. If you have some leftover materials, you can definitely use those.
Felt papers are usually used for construction. Maybe you have some lying around from a recent renovation or manage to purchase one. No matter what the reason, there are a lot of projects you can do with your kids with it.

If you are wanting to make your own home accents, this will be a good opportunity. It is easy and is something you and your kids can do together with a big one and get it framed anywhere you want to in your home.
Another easy project that will not require sewing. You could just have any albums or journals that you would like to design. You could also repurpose some old books.
