Crafty Summer Days

Summer break is close and my two kids are like horses headed to the barn after a long day in the fields; they’re barreling down the home stretch. Watching their growing anticipation, I can’t help but look back fondly on my own summer breaks, back in the “old” days, before computers and PS3′s. The first few weeks were glorious–what with no homework coupled with the freedom to stay up late and sleep in the next day. But by the time mid-summer rolled around I’d start getting restless. Crafting to the rescue! Paper mache, macrame, watercolors, Popsicle sticks sculptures, beeswax candles, and hot pads crafted on a red metal loom would fill my days. Before your kids can utter their first “there’s nothing to do”, check out the sites below for some great summer activity ideas that are both inexpensive and fun.

    I was just thinking today about those much anticipated but-long-gone summer vacation days, both my own and my kids’. Ahhh, but grandkids are on the way!
