Keep your kids busy all summer long with these fun art and craft ideas you can make at home.
My kids and I are SO excited summer break is finally here! I promised my boys when we moved to Arizona that I would spend more time playing and doing activities with them. To keep my word, and make my job easier, I put together a DIY Summer Camp. I planned out a weekly schedule filled with lots of different activities for us to do all summer long. You can check out all the details here.
Summer Arts and Crafts For Kids
This post is to share with you the activities we are doing for our Arts and Crafts time. Every day we do one daily outing as well as two hour long activities. We’ll be doing arts and crafts twice a week. I only needed 22 ideas but came up with 25 just in case the kids don’t like one and/or we finish in less than an hour.
If we finish early or are having a lazy day, I have plenty of my Color Happy pages printed we can color too! Some of the activities are pretty self explanatory, like playing with play dough. For these ideas there will be no links. I also have some activities planned that I need to do tutorial posts on. I will be adding those links as we create them through out the summer.
You can check out my Instagram stories all summer long to see what we’re creating and how we are doing things too!
