Welcome to the next Fun in the Summer Sun event!

Thanks so much for all the great link-ups so far!

Each Monday until September 7th, Mama to 4 Blessings along with Adventures of Mommydom, Sweet Diva, Harvest Moon By Hand, and Sweet Phenomena will be hosting Fun in the Summer Sun link-up events.

Here’s the line up:

  • The 1st Monday of each month: link up your “Kid friendly summer activities”
  • The 2nd Monday of each month: link up your “Kid friendly summer crafts”
  • The 3rd Monday of each month: link up your “Kid friendly summer recipes”
  • The 4th Monday of each month: link up your “How to stay cool in the summer heat”

Here’s our “kid friendly summer activity!”

As I’ve mentioned before, we don’t like hanging out in the heat, so our summer activities usually revolve around indoor activities.  Today’s activity is technically a craft I suppose, but a craft is an activity right?

Babydoll is a stellar child.  Really, she’s awesome.  She’s artistic and sweet and uber.  The other day she sat down with a bag of those craft popsicle sticks and made a pencil box.  Yes, an actual pencil box.  That can be used.

Not only did she make this box that could be used, she also put a message on the front in glitter glue.  The box is a gift for her friend.

So, using school glue, craft sticks, and glitter glue, she made a pencil box.  I still marvel at it.

Why not sit your kids down with some sticks and let them go to town?  Let them be creative and figure out how to make things with the sticks that seem impossible.  They might just surprise you…

I’ve got to get a pic of this pencil box uploaded so you guys can see it.  It’s awesome.  Really.

What about you?  Do you have a summer activity you’d like to share?  Be sure to link up below!!
