Ten Easy Summer Crafts

Despite every store across the country being slammed with back to school sales, there is still over a month left of summer! Summer is easily my favorite season. I love being outside in the sunshine as often as possible and have (hopefully!) passed that love on to my kids.

My son just turned 3 this past week and in the last few months has really become interested in crafting. While I love the idea of arts and crafts, it’s not my strongest area of motherhood and I tend to shy away from them. But, because of his new-found love, I have spent a lot of time looking up simple, easy crafts we can do together. What better theme than summer, am I right? Here’s ten great, easy summer crafts – bubble snakes are our favorite!

Tom and Lauren Tate met each other in college and fell in love (there may or may not have been alcohol involved). Years later, they got married, had a baby and now live happily in Southeastern PA with their little boy. Lauren manages the home, while Tom manages projects at a software company. While their interests range from cooking and working out (her) and playing guitar and video games (him), together they manage to maintain a blog, Little Old Home (www.littleoldhome.com).
