You’ll need a hot glue gun, some cardboard, wine glasses, pillar candles, and whatever else you would like to use to decorate your glasses.

Each of these ideas can provide you with some fun quality time with the kids while jazzing up your living space at the same time. None of them should cost you over $20, or take you over a few hours. Turn loving and entertaining your children into time spent creating things to make you all love the house.
