Craft Roundup: Fun Summer Projects for Kids

Have we officially met the dog days of summer? It’s mid July; toys have been played with, games have been conquered and friends have been over to visit time and time again. Is your family looking for some new ways to enjoy the summer days? If the answer is yes, then this week’s Make It roundup is for you. Take a look at these ideas that take simple craft projects and turn them into guaranteed summer fun activities.


Popsicle Holders for Kids

Blogger Tonya Staab created a bunch of these oilcloth Popsicle holders for her children’s end-of-the-year summer treats, and they’re a great idea. Not only does she show you how to make these holders, she’s paired them with free printable gift tags, too.


Free Printable Summer Themed Sewing Cards

Encourage sewing and lacing skills with this set of fun, summer-themed sewing cards from Molly Moo Crafts. My personal favorite? The watermelon!


Jellyfish Handprint Bookmarks

Not only are these bookmarks cute and fun to make, but they’re also a great keepsake for remembering your child’s size this summer season. Get the how-to from The NY Melrose Family.


Washi Tape Summer Boredom Buster Jar

If you’ve already heard, “I’m boooored” more than a few times, it might time to take a cue from While He Was Napping and create your own summer boredom buster jar. Armed with washi tape and Popsicle sticks, you can create a jar filled with ideas in no time.
