If you’re a parent with kids home in the summer, you know how challenging it can be to keep them busy and from saying those two dreaded words, “I’m Bored!” This is an amazing list of Great Summer Crafts for Kids!
When my kids are home in the summer, I like to pick 1 item a week for us to work on at home. It may be a slime or play dough recipe my kids can enjoy all week, an outdoor game they can play with friends and neighbors or painting something simple and fun they can hang in their room.
The majority of these crafts are simple and easy and I suggest picking them out with your children. That way you can gather the materials (if you don’t already have them) and work through the summer on fun creative crafts.
