We are adding the craft to your Craft Projects.
The project was added to your Craft Projects.
During the summer, the kids are out of school and you always want to take advantage of the time you have with them. But what will you do together? In these hard economic times when going on a weekend trip isn't always an option, summer crafting is the best solution! Work with your kids to create fun summer crafts to wear or decorate your home with. These are easy ideas for summer outdoor crafts or as a project for a rainy summer day.

Reach for the stars while you look cool!
Designed and decorated by Frances Lopez
1. Draw four stars onto Contact Paper. Cut stars out with scissors. Remove backing paper. Place stars onto visor.
2. Spray Cool Color Spray randomly over entire front of visor where stars are. Let dry.
3. Peel off stars. Outline each star with glitter paint. Add a few dots randomly around stars. Let dry.
Sometimes you just need a quick gift during the summer, whether it's for a party favor, to celebrate a birthday or to bring to a friend's house for a barbeque. Why not choose an easy and creative gift you can make with your kids?
These BBQ Skewers can be used on the barbeque and are dishwasher safe. The beads should not be placed in an open flame or directly over red hot coals. These are also great for fruit kebobs – just cut chunks of fresh fruit, skewer them & chill until ready to eat!

Windsocks are easy projects that only require a few materials:
You can make your very own windsock with just some colored paper, decorative ribbon and clothespins to hang it from. Your kids can help you decorate your windsock while you cut the ribbon. Click here for the blowin' in the wind windsock project idea.
Use what you've got:
If you have extra paint (that doesn't stain!) let your kids decorate the fence around the vegetable garden with it. They can make their own signs to label what you're growing too with just some colored markers and paper. If you have extra clay around the house, let them make their favorite animals in clay to put on the patio or in the garden. If you have an abundance of green clay, try making these cute clay turtles!
Make your garden unique and whimsical:
Add your own personal touch to your garden that will make your garden your own. Forget buying that expensive garden gnome! Try something like this bees and hive outdoor decor made out of terra cotta saucers.
