Who doesn’t love bubbles? The answer is: no one. With this summer craft you can elevate your bubble game for your kids! All you need is some essential oils and some food dye to give your bubbles a makeover. Your kids can pick out which scents they want and the colors they like. This will teach them about color mixing and different scents. You can also try to make the color match the scent so for example the yellow bubbles can be lemon scented.

You don’t necessarily need a pool to use pool noodles. You can take or buy some noodles and transform them into friendly monsters. Kids can use anything from googly eyes, to pipe cleaners, ribbon, or even pom poms. You can find the monster tutorial here: https://www.createcraftlove.com/pool-noodle-monsters/
They are adorable, easy, and fun to make.

When children think of summer two things will always come to mind: popsicles and sidewalk chalk. These chalk pops are fun to make and even more fun to use. An adult will need to help make the chalk pops in the beginning. Once the chalk is made, the kids won’t need any supervision. You can find the materials and step by step instructions for the chalk pops here: https://projectnursery.com/2015/05/diy-sidewalk-chalk-pops/#_a5y_p=5245552

Are you planning on going to the beach this summer? If so, these glitter seashell frames are a perfect craft for your kids to do while you are down the shore. I know kids will be collecting seashells while they are on the beach, so why not make a craft out of them. With the collected shells children can paint them or cover them in glitter. Then after the shells are covered all you have to do is glue it to the frame! Even if you don’t go down the shore and your children aren’t able to collect shells, you can still buy some from a craft store. You can find the materials and directions here: https://onelittleproject.com/glitter-sea-shell-picture-frame/
