There’s no better time than summer to get some awesome craft projects underway. The kids are off school, the weather is fine, and the days are long. But these aren’t just for the older kids, have fun with your little ones too. Arch loves doing little mini projects, and we have an array of pretty pictures and different crafts that we have done together. These are great too if it’s raining, or if you just aren’t feeling a mummy and toddler group. Also I’d recommend checking your local library, ours offer a craft day once a week, and during the holidays they do lots of fun themed crafts too..great for the little ones. Even if it only keeps Arch entertained for 10 minutes! Anyway on to the crafts.
I’ve collected a few things over the last few months in a box, crazily known as the craft box. Original I know. In the craft box we have felt, buttons,paints, paper, pom poms…and you get where I am going with this. I actually pick up bulk sets when the sales are on. Because let’s’ be honest I don’t think our little ones are going to care if the craft pack is ‘last seasons’. Obviously I keep tools like scissors, glue and spray adhesives out-of-the-way in a cupboard, and I use these when doing certain things..though Arch is just about getting the hang of glue.
There’s nothing more summer-esque than building a den and playing outside all day, watching the stars at night and nothing is as tasty than a smore! Grab a sheet, a bunch of pillows and fill your day making daisy chains and going on nature hunts. The kids are sure to have fun!
Next we have a fun DIY which is super colourful, fun to make and should last a fair bit of time too. DIY chalk for your kids to draw some masterpieces on pavement in your back garden or on your street. Fun to make and fun to use..plus how cute do these look..lolly pop shapes. This is also a fun activity for kids all ages and a great one for the little ones in helping them learn colours.
Oh the wonders you can create with a cardboard box, how cute does this look? The possibilities are really endless!
For the unicorn lovers in your life, this is super cute right and who knew you could create something like this from an old toilet roll. This is sure to keep the unicorn loves entertained!
These are so cute right? Perfect for those sunny days! Also a great one to do with the little ones.
This last one is great for the older kids, and helping them with their spelling. Plus its a fun activity finding the pebbles and painting them to look pretty!
So there you have it, just a few ideas to keep your kids entertained this summer! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
