I received product to facilitate this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
Are you still under stay at home orders in your state? Here in Minnesota, things are beginning to loosen up (a little). While we can go out now, most activities are still limited. Every single fun thing we had planned for summer 2020 has been canceled. So that means: no family summer camp, no kids camp, no parades, no small town celebrations, no baseball games, as well as other events and activities that are no longer an option. Right now, we still aren’t even allowed to eat inside restaurants! All this adds up to mean that we have to find new things to keep us occupied this summer. So I’m sharing some fun ideas you can enjoy from home with your kids.
Crafts and DIY Fun – While At Home
With so many of us turning to crafts as a fun distraction while under stay at home orders, I’ve decided to put share this cool selection featuring four of the most popular craft products available. They’re all easy, fun for the whole family, and especially timely! Great options during lockdown or anytime really!
- CHALK OF THE TOWN T-SHIRT KIT — Dream it, draw it, wear it! These fun chalk t-shirt kits are erasable, re-usable, and machine washable which means you can enjoy again and again. They allow kids (and adults!) to create and wear their own specially designed t-shirts. The best part is they are available in youth sizes XS to XL as well as adult sizes S to 2XL and there’s a variety of color options to choose from too.
- DINOMAZING EGG DECORATOR — This dynamically different craft kit is actually a craft and activity in one! Pop in one of the plastic eggs included with the kit and let the clean, fun decorating begin. Using the different colored markers, kids can add stripes, lines, zigzags, or other fun“prehistoric” designs to decorate their ‘dinosaur’ egg. Once finished, just “crack” open the shell to discover a surprise mini collectible dinosaur dripping in cool colored slime!
- FOODIE SURPRISE FOOD CARTS — Unpack each of the different Food Carts from its adorable ‘to-go’ container. Along the way, kids will discover a variety surprise ingredients and supplies that will let them create their own edible candy! Geared for ages 6 and up, let the kids go crazy creating their own treats to enjoy on long summer days!
- AQUABEADS TROLLS WORLD TOUR (Epoch): Now is the perfect time for kids to get crafting! This awesome Aquabeads Trolls Kit helps kids make creations from templates or they can get extra crafty using their own imaginations to place beads onto the layout tray. Then, just spray with water to fuse the beads together! Easy peasy and so much fun!
Don’t forget about those summer birthdays! Each one of these products would make a great birthday gift for the special kids in your life.
So tell me, what kinds of activities or projects do you have planned to keep the kids occupied this summer.
I’m a city girl turned country by my awesome husband and we have three busy boys and two darling daughters. I love spending time with my family, reading Karen Kingsbury novels, and catching up with friends while our kiddos have play dates. I’m blessed beyond measure and can’t wait to see what God has in store.
