When my kids were young, they loved to craft and draw so I made sure there were plenty of craft supplies to keep them busy. Word got out and their friends were always coming over to craft with us, too. lol A lot of these ideas would have been so fun and inexpensive to do with all of them.

I can't wait to try out some of these fun craft ideas with my nephews when they get older - especially the finger painting ones! The best part about crafting during the summer is that you can do a lot of it outside instead of messing up your kitchen.
