Planning crafts for the summertime with your kids can be difficult when you’re a little short on ideas… so we’ve written this blog to inspire you a bit!
-Make homemade birdhouses!
Buy the houses here.
and decorate them by gluing on some tissue paper pieces, buttons, sequins, and anything else you can think of!
-Get out the tie-dye kit!
Get creative and do more than shirts, like canvas tote bags, scrunchies, or a tablecloth.
-Make beautiful pasta necklaces.
Buy some assorted kinds of pasta and some yarn, and get creating! After (or before) you assemble the necklaces, get out some paints and make the pasta pieces colorful.
-Make dreamy paper lanterns!
You’ll need two sheets of colored paper, scissors, a pencil, and a stapler. Begin by cutting two strips down the long side of one of the sheets, and set them aside. Next, fold the second sheet of paper in half to form a long and skinny rectangle.
Draw pencil marks as a guide, and invite the kiddos over to cut along the lines with scissors. Be sure not to cut all the way to the edge of the paper, leaving about an inch at the end.
Open it up, and roll it to connect both of the ends. Staple into place. Roll up the first sheet of paper and insert it into the lantern. Staple into place. Use the strips of paper you first cut off to decorate your lanterns, if desired. Hang your paper lanterns from the ceiling to make a pretty new decoration!
-Make stained glass jars.
Gather your glass jars and pass them out! Then, cut up multi-colored tissue paper into one-to-two-inch pieces. Use Mod-Podge or paste to glue these onto the inside of each glass jar. Once dried, place tea light candles inside the jars and watch the colors glow!
