Little Hands – Fun Summer Crafts Round-Up

Memorial Day is coming up and marks the first long weekend of the summer. Families and friends will gather for BBQs, picnics and long days in the great outdoors. Children will have a blast. Having a week day off from school gives such a sense of freedom.

This is the sort of enthusiasm that leads to much creativity. With this in mind, here is a selection of creative, outdoor-inspired, projects for the weekend and for the summer ahead. We’ll make three stops, but do not stop here. The sites that serve as resources for this selection abound with such playful and colorful ideas that even adults without children will want to round-up supplies and get creative. Have fun!
