Summer Activities Round-Up, Part 2

We posted Part 1 of our Round-Up of favorite summertime activities last week.  Here’s the rest of our compilation of ways to fill the last few days of summer!

1) Sun prints – Celebrate the sun by creating these gorgeous prints from paint cut paste.  Glue the prints to folded cardstock afterward to make pretty note cards to use for thank you notes.

2) Cork boatsWe’ve tested the seaworthiness and do-ability of MANY, MANY boats for projects here at Kiwi Crate (more on that for another post), and were so impressed with these awesome boats shared by Jonah Lisa Land on The Crafty Crow. It’s a good way to use up any leftover wine corks you just may have laying around – or get donated from willing friends…

3) Hot colored rocks – This project is such a neat idea (coloring hot rocks with crayons) and is a great excuse to head out to a local beach, river or park to collect rocks.  It’s also courtesy of Jen at paint cut paste as a guest post on Moms by Heart (Jen has tons of more summer ideas here.)

4) Pool noodle printingWith summer coming to a close, you can find pool noodles for sale at the drug store or the dollar store for a song.  Use them for  this cool printing project from The Chocolate Muffin Tree. And after you’re done painting, you can repurpose the noodles to make Floating Sculptures – another great project from The Chocolate Muffin Tree.

5) Water Sponge Toys from Marie at Make and Takes – just in case your kids need another way to get wet outside!  Marie also has a great how-to video on her site for this, which we’ve included here as well.
