Whether you’re taking a break from your homeschool for the summer, or working on a year round approach, these longer days are perfect for summer crafts for preschoolers.
Let’s take a look at some of the fun activities you can try to keep your preschoolers engaged this summer.
Looking for more ideas for water play for preschoolers?
Grab your sponges and fishing line and make your own sponge bombs to take to the pool or use in your back yard.
Want to enjoy some ice cream with those cookies? You can make it yourself and even teach your kids some science along the way with this Ice Cream in a Bag activity.
If you’re reading beach and ocean books this summer, you’ll need some hands on activities.
Our kids had fun making octopus and jellyfish crafts.
Going on a beach vacation this year?
Summer activities don’t have to break the bank, either. Take a peep at these frugal ideas for summer fun.
Flip flops are a staple in my kids’ summertime wardrobe. I found a few ideas to make them even more fun!
Have girls at home? Grab some jewels and jazz up their flip flops. You could even make matching pairs.
I’m adding this to my list of dinosaur crafts and activities. After we read some of the boys’ favorite dinosaur books, I’ll bet we can create some fun dinosaur flip flops.
If we’re in the mood for monster crafts instead, I think these Googly Eye Flip Flops will be a hit.
If mermaids aren’t your style, check out this Sunflower Art instead.
Want some more cheery decor? This bright Sun Mobile would be perfect to hang up at home.
When the sun sets, it’s time to hunt for lightening bugs!

You’ll need to be on the lookout for some neon bandages to put together these lightening bugs.
