We’re in the home stretch of summer break, and all those fresh ideas we had for entertaining the kids this summer have gone totally stale. With the temps bordering on unbearable, a trip to the playground once the sun’s up is a total no-go, which means I’ve got one very bored son that’s cooped up indoors and just dying for a fresh new activity or project to keep him occupied.
Rather than leave it up to the kids to entertain themselves in these final weeks of summer, prepare yourself with a few of these craft projects that are guaranteed to keep them happy and entertained. These simple crafts for kids don’t require too many fancy materials—most of these crafts can be achieved with stuff you already have around the house. Check them out in the slideshow.
