Summer Crafts for Kids

The 4th of July is a great time to do some fun summer crafts with your kids. There are so many great projects that you can incorporate the American flag design into, and you can use the holiday to teach your kids at the same time!
The back to school season can inspire a great deal of dread for children. It means that summer is ending and days at the pool will soon be replaced with days at a desk. Change the way your favorite student feels about school and instead, associate the season with fun and creativity.
