Family Fun Summertime Crafts

Build Sleepover Tents

Summertime has come, so it’s time for sleepover fun! Not only do they collapse for easy storage, but the kiddos can have fun choosing how they the fabric for their tents, and even selecting other decorations to personalize and embellish them. This would even make an awesome birthday gift for someone!

Summer Adventure Calendar

Make the most of the fleeting days of summer with a linear calendar that is part planner, part scrapbook. When the summer comes to an end and it’s time to take it down, sit together as a family to talk through all the fun things you did together.

Make a list of things you didn’t get a chance to do and plan to start checking things off the list over the course of the next few months.

Easy Crafts for Kids

Cute as a Button: Button Art

Button art is sure to be a hit for kids of all ages (just keep an eye on younger children who might be tempted to put them in their mouth)! 

Let them get creative, because the sky’s the limit in terms of what can be designed. For example, flowers would be perfect for the summertime, and a giant shaped heart filled with buttons would be cute year around! So grab a canvas and an assortment of buttons – different colors, sizes, shapes – and let the fun begin!

Painting with Marbles

Use shaving cream to make a marbled paper masterpiece. Kids can make a mess and stir things up but the end result is always satisfying because the more imperfect the marbling, the more beautiful the art.
