Summer is practically over, but if you live in a warm place like I do, there are still weeks of warm weather! If your children have yet to start back to school, or if they are already feeling bummed by school, you can whip up one of these simple summer crafts to celebrate the last days of summer. You have until September 22nd to officially celebrate the season!
7 Fun Summer Crafts for Kids
Crafting Animals from Toilet Paper Rolls – Untrained Housewife
I don’t usually like toilet paper crafts, but these animals made by Tricia Edgar at the Untrained Housewife are some of the cutest I have ever seen. I think the simple octopus is my favorite! My seven-year old would love putting these animals together. Time to start saving up on TP rolls!
Quick and Easy Paper Hat Craft – Type A Parent
Do your kids love hats? Then you will love making this paper hat craft. If you remember the old newspaper Robin Hood-style hats that we made in school as children, this is a similar idea. However, with prettier paper and fun embellishments!
Fun for a Buck Macaroni – 4tunate
There is something about macaroni that still makes a classic craft. You can do so much with it! This craft is a simple way that you can keep children occupied on their own for hours (or maybe just minutes). Simple craft, simple supplies- just how I prefer my crafts in our busy life!
Hanging Cookie Cutter Bird Feeder | Homemade Bird Seed Cakes – Stephanie Lynn
Does your little one love birds and wildlife? These crafts are perfect for feeding migrating birds as they leave/arrive for the colder months. This craft takes a little more parental involvement, but looks Pinterest-worthy when finished. These would also make great Christmas gifts!
