5 Summer Learning Crafts & Creations We Love for Kids

Did you ever go to summer camp? As kids, it was the tradition each year. We loved going and trying out every single activity under the sun, putting together new crafts and creations. The best part of summer is that we had time just to relax and be creative. 

So we thought, why not gather some fabulous fun crafts for kids in a new round up perfect for lazy days on summer vacation? Get ready to go on an adventure to make new crafty creations at home, camp or summer vacation that will really stun your family and friends.

3. End of Summer Time Capsule

Keep kids writing this summer with a special project. Encourage the essential skills of expression (this trip made me feel…) and reflection in a new and different way. Why not teach children to create their own history lesson in a relaxed summer environment? We love this crafty creation from Aleacia at Inner Child Learning!


 4. Seashell Memory Craft

Transform a simple activity on summer vacation into a memory that lasts a lifetime. Do you remember collection shells by the seaside when you were little? Now, you and your kids, campers and students can take a simple shell collection and create a project that every kid will be proud of.
