If you are out of ideas on how to entertain your kid this summer, these DIY kids summer crafts are for you. When it comes to the time your kid is bored and you don’t know what to do, DIY ideas are so helpful and perfect. Here we found out some interesting ideas to amaze your children for hours of fun.
-milk/juice cartons (washed and dried)
-bird seed/small pieces of bread/small pieces of cheese
Children love animals and art, so it`s an ideal summer craft. You can help your kid at the beginning, cutting off the sides of the carton. Then it`s all in your kid`s hands. It`s so easy and fun to create various colors, adding stripes, stars, and various shapes to make the birdhouse unique and special.
When the birdhouse is dry, help your kid and make a hole in the top of the carton adding the string. Now let`s go for a walk in the nearest yard, park, or wood to hang it on the tree. You can also add some nuts into the birdhouse for other small animals like mice, squirrels, etc.
-fun, interesting to do
-easy to do
-opportunity to see what birds live in your neighbourhood
-a wood/park/garden nearby
-a thick book/mother`s hairspray
The summer is almost over, however, we can store some of the natural beauty at home. Just go for a walk to the nearest park or forest and watch beautiful flowers and leaves. The main idea is to cut them off the tree or the bush and get it home. Be careful not to destroy a tree leaf or a little flower. Also, you can gather some berries (not for food), cones, etc.
After returning home, take all the leaves and flowers and put them in the middle of the book. It will be dried there and in autumn you can continue to create an amazing picture adding these natural pieces of art on the paper with glue.
Of course, if you wish a quick result, take a flower and your strongest hairspray and varnish it with the hairspray (don`t give the hairspray to a kid!). After the flower is dried, you can give it a kid and you`ll decide together what to do next: put it in the vase, make a bouquet, hang it near the window…oh, you can use all your imagination here.
-spend family time outside
-learn about new plants, flowers, trees
