for kids, summertime is full of sunshine, flipflops, blowing bubbles, riding bikes, catching fireflies, icy popcicles, flying kits, splashing in the pool and the like.
summertime is also the time when many families get together for their annual family reunions.
so, here's little family friendly craft to keep you and your children creating together on those terrible, horrible, no good, very bad (weather) summertime days. :)
Fiskars tools not only make this project super simple, but also very do-able...and you can toss in a little pre-reunion name memorization for the kids along the way. it's also a great activity to help kids learn about how generations are related if you do a tradition family tree.
be sure to check out full project details with more photos on the Fiskars website.
yeppers, it's my very first official Fiskars project! :)
that calls for a celebration, don'tcha think!?
