Posts Tagged ‘Summer Crafts for Kids’
Each summer I hold a Summer Scrap Camp for kids, and we meet 5 times during the time between the end of school and back-to-school chaos. This summer we had 2 great groups – one for kids going into 2nd and 3rd grade, and another group for kids going into 4th through 9th grade.
Each time we meet, we work on 4-5 scrapbook pages, plus another project or two. This past week we created locker magnets for the kids to take back to school with them. I put out stamps, card stock and a bunch of fun scraps left from past projects, and the kids went to work!
Here are their creations:
Looking for more projects to do with kids before school begins again? Here are a variety of kid-tested stamping projects on my blog.
Looking for a fun summer craft using supplies you have at home? Everyone needs another fridge magnet, right? Especially one that will hold a photo. I suppose you could put a ‘to do’ list in the clip, but that’s hardly as much fun.
This photo holder is clipped to my file drawers with a reminder photo of our trip to Alaska (thanks again to Stampin’ Up!!). The project is very simple:
- Add sticky magnet to one side of a clothespin
- Add Designer Series Paper in a fun shape to the other side of the clothespin (here cut with the Scallop Circle Die for Big Shot)
- Decorate as desired: this one uses the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set (see it online) and matching Butterfly Punch (see it online) along with the Fancy Flower Punch (see it online) and the 5-Petal Flower Punch (see it online).
