Summer is here, which means kids will be home from preschool and daycare! Children love spending time with friends during the summer, but it is also important to set up activities for children to enjoy at home when they are not with their friends. Make sure your child has a fun and active summer by trying these fun craft projects:
Give your child an opportunity to show off her creative side by helping her make a cool sign for her bedroom door. This sign can say anything, from her name to her favorite phrase! Use construction paper to create a sign or large letters. Decorate the paper with markers and use a ribbon to hang it on the door.
This season may be filled with sunshine, but it is also known to bring a few storms along with it! Make sure your child is prepared for summer showers by helping her decorate her own unique umbrella. Find a solid colored children’s umbrella, and use art supplies to add fun shapes, patterns, and designs.
Will your family be taking any vacations this summer? Your child can capture these memories by creating an awesome summer collage! Purchase a poster board, and give your child safety scissors, paste, and art supplies. Encourage your child to combine summer pictures with these supplies to make a beautiful and meaningful piece of art.
Wearing sunglasses is a great way to keep the sun’s rays away from the eyes during the warm season. Your child can use her free time to make her own superstar sunglasses! Find a simple pair of children’s sunglasses and fun materials such as beads and sequins. Help your child carefully attach the items to the sunglasses for a one-of-a-kind pair of shades.
