Summer is everyone’s favorite time of the year – at least, it is in our household. Sometimes it can be hard to find things for the kids to do so I compiled a list of fun and inexpensive crafts to do this summer. I know your summer is probably packed full with fun adventures but these crafts will give you guys something to do on rainy days.
The best part about these crafts is that they can make some really awesome keepsakes! As your child grow it will be so amazing to look back at some of these crafts that you did together, plus the memories you’ll be making.
I certainly plan on making the handprint shell with shells we will collect from our beach trip this July. Ray loves collecting shells while we are at the beach and I always try to save the shells but I never know what the best way is to save them. This keepsake makes for a perfect way to always keep them close!
