One of the things I love best about summer is that it’s such a relaxed time. While we still continue schooling, we do so without making lesson plans or trying to meet objectives.
Unfortunately, that also leaves a lot of free time for the kids. And it only takes a couple of days into June before they’re shouting “Mom, I’m bored!”
That makes summer a great time of year to do some crafting. And these simple summer crafts for kids are perfect!
Each of these crafts requires six or fewer supplies, so they’re awesome for quick art activities, afternoon family fun, or easy projects for the…ahem….not so crafty among us. (Myself included.)
Take a look to find some easy summer crafts you’ll love to share with the kids! And, for more summer fun, don’t miss our list of 50 summer books to share during read-aloud time!
