Summer Crafts For Kids

summer crafts for toddlers
 
I am so happy that summer is finally here!  I have so many fond memories of summer as a child, and I just love that as a parent, I can make new memories with Lincoln! 
 
I scoured Pinterest for my favorite summer crafts for kids, and today I'm going to share them with you!

Lincoln is really into bird feeders right now.  At my in-laws house, they have a huge bird feeder in front of their picture window.  Lincoln always checks to make sure it has food.  If it doesn't, he has to go fill it up!  I think he would have a blast making his very own bird feeder, and then watching the birds eat  from it!

This is super creative, and something any kid would love.  Matchbox cars are all the rage in our house.  All 24753 of them.  And of course they have to race.  What a fun way to make a racetrack!

Lincoln would surely have a blast hunting for the perfect rocks around the yard.  Then he could paint them and attach those silly googly eyes!

I absolutely love this idea.  Lincoln would love creating an ocean bottle. I just think we'd need to super glue the cap shut :)

This craft is so incredibly simple, but looks amazing!  Inside is just a glow stick and glitter.  You shake it up...and you see FAIRIES!!!

It seriously blows my mind how creative some people can be.  Juice boxes turned into sailboats.  Seriously.  Genius.

Lincoln knows how much his Momma loves her coffee.  I just know he'd enjoy making me a special coaster for my favorite beverage :)

This would be a great craft to do on a rainy day, to appreciate on a sunny day!

Are you doing any summer crafts with your little ones?   If so, share what you have in mind!
