Craft Roundup: Cool Projects for Hot Summer Days
This vacation with the kids, why not kick back with these family fun DIY activities? Create ice balloons, a monster notebook and more with these nifty sites.
So, how hot has it been in your neighborhood the past few days? It's been a scorcher here in Royal Oak. My family and friends haven't been venturing outside too much during the 100-digit temperatures, so we've been laying low inside tackling hands-on projects. If you're like us, here are a few projects to help you beat the heat and keep family members quiet and happy as we wait for cooler days.
Ice balloons? Sign me up! Here's a craft project perfect for ANY age – even us grown-up crafters. Crumb Bums shows how a package of simple balloons can turn into a cool (literally) summer hands-on project.
Have you ever found yourself wanting to put together a project for your family to do, but had no idea where to start? Mr.Printables.com is here to help. The website provides free clip-art downloads, ranging from coloring sheets to DIY USA puzzles. Check out the site and add it to your favorites.
Here's a great way to recycle fabric scraps. Abernathy Crafts uses that and some cardboard to produce a simple picture frame that's sweet to decorate a whole house with – or give as a gift to a friend.
Are the birds in your backyard especially hungry right now? Put your small crafters to work by having them create this sweet birdy treat by No Time for Flashcards.
