Summer is here! Our whole family looks forward to the last day of school. I love having the kids home and the busy schedule of summer. Let the summer activities begin! Our kids love to be creative and doing projects. Here is a list of some of our favorite summer activities that we have done in the past. Click on the title to take to to the specific post.
Help your kids create their own bubble wand from recycled material, and then let the fun begin. They will LOVE blowing these wonderful sock bubbles, and having bubble snake wars. Add a little food coloring and they will create magical, colorful bubbles. This was a huge hit in our house. We saved the bubble wands to play again soon.
These cute bug houses come straight from your recycle bin. This the perfect importunity for your kids to do a bug study and observe the critters living in your back yard.
These frozen yogurt dots are the perfect summer treat. These little healthy dots are easy to make, plus they taste AMAZING! We use Greek yogurt, but you can be made with any yogurt that your family prefers.
This is a great way to cool off this summer. This kids will enjoy building their very own sprinkler using recycled materials. Easy, cheap and fun! We made this sprinkler last year, used it all last summer and it is still working great today. I love that it was free to make, and it is still the kids sprinkler of choice.
Help your kids create a fun Travel Time Line for your next road trip. Encourage them to draw pictures of what landmarks they will see along the trip. It will help keep all the “how much further” questions at bay and the kids will have fun moving your car past each landmark. This little activity will help pass the time on those long car rides.
Road Trip BINGO
Road Trip BINGO is a great way to pass the time on those long car rides. There are 8 different printable sheets, so each person in the car can have a unique playing card. Simply print each of the PDF sheets of and laminate them. This will create a slick surface and make them reusable.
Help your kids build these simple catapults out of scrap wood, and have fun launching small objects. These are so simple and quick to make.
This is a great rainy day activity. Have the kids set up a simple Barbie salon and help detangle her hair.
Hope that you can find some fun summer inspiration. I would love to hear what is on your summer creative list.
