Summer Outdoor Crafts For Kids and Adults
Outdoor crafts are the perfect way to occupy your time while working outdoors. You can make gifts for your loved ones, or you can teach kids about the value of craftsmanship. These outdoor crafts offer a wonderful opportunity for kids to add craft materials and creativity to their gardens or backyards. These projects are especially simple and affordable kids crafts! Here’s how to make a simple garden ornament and more.
Simple outdoor crafts are great for children ages three and up, and even if you’re trying to stay on track with the “toy wars” between brother and sister, these easy crafts can help foster bonding. You can start with any basic kids activity such as making cookies or even designing flower pots and baskets. Or you can take the toddler and lead them on a simple art project that involves painting or crayons. Your toddler will love to get their hands into this type of project.
As a parent, you can help your kids build a community around outdoor crafts. Offer your kids crafts at home on a regular basis so that they will be happy to go to your house to get something when their friends want to go green. If your family has an “organic” friends club, pass around a flyer that says, “We Go Green with Eco-Friendly Art.” You can also post signs at the driveways inviting people to come make some fun kids crafts. And your neighbors will appreciate the reminder that you care about the environment.
An outdoor activity that incorporates creativity and teamwork is a game called Ring Toss. Kids create a ring, and the adults throw a ball into the center of the ring. The goal is to get the ball into the center as quickly as possible by tossing the ball as far out as you can. The adults usually play the game with each other, but you can have younger kids join in to try to win the game.
Other fun outdoor crafts include painting. This project idea is great for the entire family because adults get warmer looking when they paint. Plus, painting makes a hole in your wallet! Paint can be purchased from dollar stores or from a local art supply store. Make sure the adults supervise the paint job so that children don’t end up getting hurt.
One of the best toddler crafts that you and your kids will enjoy is making Halloween masks. Begin by creating eyes, nose, and mouth parts from dental floss and masking tape. You can then dress the pieces up in clothing or use them as buttons or fun costume accessories. You can also get outside paint brushes to complete the Halloween costume. To make sure the masks stay on the weekend, you can apply the duct tape over the holes to make them stick better.
Another fun outdoor activity you and your kids can participate in is rafting. Use your imagination and craft a raft that is safe for kids to fall in and swim over. This will give you and your kids some exercise at the same time. Your adult supervision will be very important with this project.
Finally, one of the most exciting crafts during the summer is a water activity. Drown a person in water, go swimming, or anything else that requires you and your kids to go underwater. Your supervision will be very important here because it is easy to drown in the water. The best craft supplies you will need for this activity are plastic bags, cloth, and a piece of rope. It might even help to take an old t-shirt and wrap it around the waist so that the child does not get too hot in the water
