What kind of crafts do you think of as must-make summer crafts for kids to create?

Summer is the one of the times I get really excited about crafting. It brings back all the memories of what we made at summer camps or vacation bible school.

There’s a nostalgia there that makes it fun to relive.

I want to be able to create that same nostalgia feeling for my own kids when they’re older. These are some fun summer crafts for kids to make that I think will give them that same feeling.

They do for me!
