This is a cute and easy water activity that bumps the water balloon game up a notch. My kids wore white over their swimsuits while they played with these multi-colored water balloons and loved the “tie-dye” like look it made their clothes have at the end. Water activities for kids also make awesome DIY party ideas.
This kids craft requires a bit of adult supervision depending on your kids balance. Make sure you pick cans sturdy enough to support your children’s weight . We’ve made that mistake and that ended in a boo-boo and a band-aid. With the right equipment, these stilts are not only fun crafts to make with kids because they require very little time and focus, but they also provide an outdoor activity at no cost to you!
This easy summer craft idea for kids provides an awesome outdoor activity teens and kids of all ages will enjoy. We saw a Holi celebration (Indian festival celebrating spring with colored powders) and my kids were begging to join. I looked up this easy DIY recipe and we had our own color powder fight in our backyard. It’s not your average summer activity, but my kids had equal amounts of fun making this fun kids craft and throwing it all over each other and the yard.
Make your garden a little more adorable with this harmless critter. This is one of those outdoor kids crafts you can hide in the back garden if you’re not feeling like displaying fun projects front and center. My little ones love summer kids crafts that they can improve upon year after year as they get more confident with their art skills. We have a rock caterpillar that’s been painted, striped, polka dotted, and patterned many times over.
This is another water activity that requires only a little recycling and a couple of minutes to make this fun craft for kids. I know you may be thinking “why not just buy a sprinkler”…trust me, I thought the same thing until I gave into my kids begging. They got so creative with their patterns for these DIY sprinklers that no one sprinkler sprays the same.
