Summer is here. After what seemed like 1900 months of winter, the sun has finally emerged and the temperatures are rising. My kids have a daily countdown to the moment that school ends and their summer break begins.
Laying by the pool in the gorgeous sunlight doesn’t give us an excuse to stop creating and making things.
Here’s just a few ideas to keep your hands busy this summer….
