Make your house a "home"

A house is simply a physical structure, whereas a home is a place where you create meaningful memories with loved ones. It is a place for watching first steps, celebrating birthdays, and enjoying family dinners.

Here are 4 activities to help you turn your house into your home:


Hang photos and art

Create a gallery wall with your children’s art, and photos of family and friends. Hang holiday, first day of school, and photos from milestone moments. Your kids will feel special when they see their art up on the wall.


Start a collection

Begin a collection with your family. It becomes a game, and you’ll all get excited when you find something new to add. Collect salt and pepper shakers, vases, or something else that you all enjoy. Display the collection throughout your home, and each piece will remind you of the time you found it.

Make a height chart

Mark your children’s height on the door. You’ll love seeing how much they’ve grown, and the kids will get excited by their progress each time you make a new mark.

Make a “library area”

You don’t need a library room to make a library area. Select a designated part of the home where your kids can curl up with their favourite books or, if your kids are pre-reading level, an area where you can read to them.


These ideas will help you create new family traditions and memories. As they say: home is where the heart is!
