Summer is a great time for children to learn and explore their crafting skills! You can be prepared with this ultimate Summer Craft supply list for all your kids crafting needs!
Indoor Craft Supply List
Hot Summer days calls for plenty of indoor activities when it’s too hot to be outside or everyone has had enough sun for the day but it’s only lunchtime! Keeping a good selection of items from this indoor craft supply list will help keep the boredom at bay!
Outdoor Craft Supply List
You don’t want to discount the importance of having outdoor craft supplies to help keep your children busy on a lazy Summer afternoon. We have many events planned during the Summer but some days it will be nice to just stay home and relax! I added squirt guns on this craft list since you can add colored water and a canvas to create a unique piece of art!
We went outside and painted like Jackson Polluck! Since his technique of painting involves dripping, splatting, squirting we took our art to the plastic picnic table in our backyard. We covered the table with a plastic tablecloth and set out all of our supplies: paint, canvas, paint brushes, tooth brush, nasal aspirator, medicine droppers,etc.
Another day Lil’ Red wanted to use water colors so we went outside so he cold paint and be out in some fresh air! We secured a piece of water color paper to a Plastic Clipboard so the paper wouldn’t fly away! Then he got right to work with a water brush and his set of water colors.
