Posted by Sarah Haynes on

Summer is the perfect time for kids to explore their creativity and enjoy the great outdoors. With school out and the weather warm, there are endless opportunities! Here are some unique summer crafts and activities that will keep your kids entertained and help them make the most of their summer break.

  1. Water Balloon Pinatas

Beat the heat with a water balloon pinata party. Fill water balloons and hang them from a tree or clothesline. Let your kids take turns trying to burst the balloons with a stick or bat. Warning: may result in a lot of laughter and fun!

  1. Outdoor Art Studio

Set up an outdoor art studio where your kids can paint, draw, and create without worrying about making a mess. Use a large roll of paper or old bedsheets as canvases and provide them with washable paints, markers, and other art supplies. Let them paint with brushes, sponges, or even their hands and feet for a truly immersive experience.

  1. Glow-in-the-Dark Jars

Create magical glow-in-the-dark jars with your kids. All you need are some mason jars, glow-in-the-dark paint, and brushes. Let your kids paint the inside of the jars with various designs. Once the paint is dry, place the jars outside to charge in the sunlight. At night, they will glow, creating a magical ambiance for your backyard or bedroom.

  1. Ice Chalk

Make ice chalk for a fun and cooling sidewalk art activity. Mix equal parts cornstarch and water, add food coloring, and pour the mixture into an ice cube tray. Once frozen, these ice chalks can be used to draw on sidewalks and driveways. As the ice melts, it leaves behind vibrant, colorful designs.

  1. DIY Kites

Spend a breezy summer afternoon making and flying kites. Use materials like paper, plastic bags, and wooden dowels to construct your kites. Decorate them with paint, markers, or stickers. Once they're ready, head to a park or open field and watch your creations soar.

Summer is a time for fun, creativity, and making lasting memories. With these unique crafts and activities, your kids will have plenty to keep them busy and entertained all season long. So gather your supplies, head outside, and let the summer adventures begin! For the perfect accessory to wear while exploring summer fun, check out our newest hats!
