25 Creative Summer Crafts to Keep Kids Entertained All Season Long

by Amanda Garrity

Keep these easy DIY ideas on hand from June through August.
You covered the patio with sidewalk chalk, made your own ice cream, and played 50 games of cornhole in the backyard ... so now what? One of the hardest parts of summer is figuring out ways to keep your kids active — and happy — without spending a fortune. You're in luck: These summer crafts are easy enough for toddlers and kids to make, but still pretty enough for adults to leave on display all season long. Think tie dye blankets, painted rock pets, mermaid-inspired hair accessories, and more fun DIYs to keep them occupied for the afternoon, at the very least. Some of these craft ideas are simple and straightforward for little ones to tackle on their own (paper plate animals, for example), while others require some hands-on help from parents. Either way, they're a win for everyone involved, especially because they don't involve screens, sugar, or anything sticky (except washable glue).
