Summertime Crafts For Kids Prt 2

I first wrote this post last summer, We loved it so much, I decided to a re post it again. I hope you Enjoy!

Summertime is usually the favorite time for kids, but not so for parents and nannies. It can sometimes be tricky finding activities to keep your little ones occupied during this time off from school. Other than days by the pool or trips to the beach, what can you do to bring some excitement into the seemingly endless dog days of summer?

What goes together better than summertime and kids? How about diy outdoor crafts and kids! What better time to keep them from boredom (What can I do?) by keeping them busy outdoors crafting some of these wonderful projects. All on their own, or with your supervision, these crafts will delight your children and give them such pleasure that they created them them selves.

With 4th of July coming up why not think about making firework paintings

 

Milk Carton Bird Feeders:

I remember my son making this. I loved the look of pride on his face as we hung it on a tree. Added a wooden spoon for the birds to sit on while they are eating.

Rainbow Blowers:

There are so many fun crafts created with empty toilet paper rolls. Just add tissue paper. You could make a few of these in red, white, and blue for the patriotic holidays!

How about a Jellyfish Sun catcher:

The tutorial is here

How about a pool noodle race track:

This next one looks so fun:

 

All you need is an empty water bottle from your recycling, duct tape, a sock that is missing its match (which we seem to have an abundance of), dish soap and some food coloring.

Check your yard for little twigs and make a sailboat:

Twigs, string (from the dollar store) and construction paper, and you can create your own…..did I hear raft race???

Get a bunch of those dollar patio paints and let drip down a pot:

How about a Paper Plate Crown for your prince or princess to create:

The kids could also decorate two plates, and staple them almost together around the edges, then add some rice, or beans inside, then staple closed, and you have yourself a tambourine.

  3. I love these ideas! My kiddos are 2 and 4 so they will be so entertained by many of these. I especially love the jellyfish idea – a great way to show how a plastic bag let loose at the beach can be so dangerous to sea turtles!

    1. plastic in our ocean…dangerous for all that live in the sea. I remember my kids at that age. They were 2 years apart. Adorable! They will love all the activities. Have you tried the ‘Slime’ or the ‘Squishies’. I have lots of kids crafts here. Click the menu to find kids crafts.

      1. Those are so cute! You can decorate and add a message like… Hope, Smile, or Believe, etc. Place them around your neighborhood, around the park, anywhere to add a smile to finders face!! Hopefully they will pass it on!

  4. Your kids were very lucky to get such a chance to develop their creativity. I recall a time way back when I had to do this kind of stuff with a colony of 30 Beaver scouts. It takes a lot of prep time to make a successful event. Cheers Kelley. Allan

  5. Great ideas Kelley! Our daughter loves to collect and share painted rocks. It’s a big deal in Oregon to hide them for others to find in local parks. It’s a little way to pay it forward and spread joy. We’ll have to try some of the other ideas you shared. It’s important to keep those little people busy and out of trouble during these summer days. Thanks again!
