Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Posts Tagged ‘end of summer fun

The summer is coming to an end and everyone is anticipating going back to school. These last few weeks of summer can be very stressful for everyone but you can help to relieve some of the stress with a few end of summer craft ideas. These will help keep your child busy doing something they love so they won’t have so much time worrying about what the new school year will bring.

Here are a few craft ideas for the end of summer along with directions that can help your family get through the next few weeks a little easier:

  • Glow-In-the-Dark Comet– You’ll need a tennis ball, glow-in-the-dark fabric paint and plastic string, tacky glue and a craft knife. Use the paint to decorate the ball and allow it to dry. Make a handle by folding about forty inches of string in half and then place a double knot on both ends. Cut a ½ inch slit in the ball. Squeeze it open and push both of the knots inside the ball and use the glue to secure in place. Allow the glue to dry and then you’re ready to enjoy your glow-in-the-dark comet.
  • Rock Necklaces– You’ll need a small rock, scissors, 22 inch gauge colored wire, needle nose pliers, colored leather cord and a pencil. Place the rock at the center of the wire and wrap it around the rock a few times. Twist the ends together to secure and then wrap the twisted end around the pencil to make a loop. Close the end of the loop off with the pliers and cut off any excess wire. Finish up by placing the leather cord through the loop and tie the ends together to hold it secure.
  • Decorative Light Switch Covers– You’ll need different colored duct tape, light switch plates, waxed paper, permanent marker and a craft knife. Choose a color and cover the switch plate with the duct tape and fold the ends under the edges. Use the knife to cut an “X” in the center slot where the light switch will go and push the edges inward. Cut out strips of the colored duct tape and place on the waxed paper. Turn it over and draw different shapes on the paper with a permanent marker. Cut out the shapes and peel off the waxed paper revealing the sticky side and place your design onto the switch plate.

Children get bored easily and need to be stimulated. When they’re interested in the craft projects you provide for them, they’ll be excited and enthusiastic about the project.

You may want to invest in a good craft book that has a variety of different projects for kids of all ages. Most of these have easy to follow instructions that are simple to use. Some even have pictures illustrating how to do the project and the sections are usually divided up according to the season.
