Here is a sure fire way to WOW the kids this Summer! Make your own glow in the dark chalk using only two ingredients plus water. This chalk glows in the dark, under UV light, and it even works in broad daylight! (SUPER Summer FUN from Growing a Jeweled Rose)
Easy (Pirate) Cork Boats - these little cork boats are super quick to make (takes minutes) and float REALLY well. Make them using craft foam for sails and you can have hours of water play in the garden. A great craft for Summer.
Make cute and easy up-cycled DIY mood lighting from old cans! Great craft inspiration for summer parties and BBQs! After poking holes in the cans, paint them to match patio furniture! Totes chic. Btw instead of a hammer and nails you can also use a drill.
