Summer is coming. And with that, comes the all-too-familiar sighs of “Moo-ooom, I’m boooored. What can we do?” I don’t yet have school aged children, but I can remember uttering those words as a child. I was told: “Go read a book!” If (like me) your child shutters at the thought of quietly reading a book, maybe one of these crafts — using repurposed materials, of course — will pique your interests.
Sandwich box monster. This one would work well with an old tissue box too.
Pet rock. Classic, but yet it never fails to amuse children.
Strawberry necklace. And you thought peach pits were useless! Such a neat little craft idea.
Paper beads. Kill two birds with this one: get rid of junk mail flyers and entertain your kids!
Rain sticks. Not that you need more noise in a house filled with the music of children, but at least this project engages their sense of creativity too!
