Craft Roundup: Cool Projects for Hot Summer Days

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.
