Can you believe summer is here? The first day has come and gone and now I’m sure your kids are bored. I mean it has been a whole day. Don’t give in to screen time just yet! I promise that will come later on before school starts and you’re just tired.
With a little bit of planning and a few fun products your summer can be great and you can help prevent summer slide. Plus keep your sanity for a little longer.
Scrunchies are back! And honestly they are a bit expensive. Some of my favorite summer memories as a child are learning how to sew with my grandmother. Each summer I would visit her and sit at her sewing machine and make blankets and doll clothes. I had scrunchies to match every outfit because of her.
Don’t spend a bunch of money on fabric. Head to the thrift store and find fabric to repurpose as your kids are learning, or grab the fabric remnants at the store.
Look up one yard projects online to find project inspiration for your kiddos. You’ll be amazed what they will make by the end of the summer.
