Summer is almost here, and we LOVE to do crafts. Outdoor crafts for kids are perfect for summer time. We do a light bit of schooling over the summer, and use our free time to making fun crafts, create and play outdoors and in nature. It does get hot in the middle of the day, so when we are inside and not out in the water we are doing tons of crafts. Now that my children are older I like to do crafts that are multi purpose and not throw away crafts.
Homemade windchimes are a great craft and activity that can last a long time and won’t get thrown away. They look beautiful in your garden, on your front or back porch, and blowing in the wind. They make great gifts as well. These are also a lot of fun to make in a group activity. We love that they are also inexpensive to make. Most of them can be made using recycled materials or things you have found around the house or in a junk drawer even! If you are painting and getting messy, you can create these right outdoors and hang them up to dry immediately after.
Check out these windchime crafts and DIYS that are sure to be a hit this summer:
