Easy Summer Themed Crafts for Kids

I wanted to share some cool summer themed projects for kids. Most of these only need a few ingredients or materials to complete.  These are the type of projects that are good for busy moms: simple, quick and they look great when they're done.  Plus, since it's summer, you can eliminate some of the mess factor by crafting outside which means clean up is a breeze.  

 Salt Dough Starfish by Stampin' & Craftin' are easy on the budget, but the finished product is designer quality.  Let the kids play, while you design a masterpiece for your mantle!

Sing a new Song, learn about math, and create art with this cute Hand Print Crab Activity.

 I *love* these Paper Towel Octopuses by Mom 2 Posh Little Divas

Learn how to create Crabby Sandwiches by Pam's Party and Practical Tips.  Wouldn't these be perfect for a summer brunch?


This lobster foot print craft is easy and has lots of personality. He's probably the friendliest lobster you'll ever meet!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
