Craft Roundup: Fun Outdoor Projects for the Family

Kids enjoying the spring weather? Mix in DIY fun with a water bottle holder, light-up faux fireflies, seat belt pillows for road trips and flower sunglasses.

As soon as it's warm outside it's time to hit the great outdoors! We've been cooped up inside our houses for far too long this past winter. It's time for baseball and soccer games, bike rides with friends and impromptu picnics. This week's roundup celebrates the out-and-about kid, from spending hours outside exploring to heading out to a best friend's birthday party. Which DIY idea is your favorite this week?

 

DIY Water Bottle Holder

I love this idea from It's Always Autumn. Not only is it a great accessory to keep on hand at your house; it's also a practical gift for friends and family.

 

Make Fireflies That Really Light Up

Apartment Therapy is featuring a cute DIY project inspired by a classic summer activity – hunting for fireflies. You don't need a lot of extra supplies to make a swarm of these friendly bugs (and they're a great way to use up those stray plastic Easter eggs!).

 

Seat Belt Pillows for the Road

If you're impressed with this collection of seat belt pillows, you're not alone. Check out this post by Super Jenn and follow the links to buy her DIY pillow pattern to try it yourself.

 

DIY Flower Sunglasses

Here's a project from Mommy Like Whoa that everyone in the family can enjoy. What types of small accessories might you and your children use to decorate a pair of spring-ready sunglasses?
