Five Crafty Recipes and Easy Tutorials for Summer Fun with Your Kids

pontoon boat from recycled materialsAnother favorite pastime at our house is to drag out the recycling bin and a spellbinding array of tape and hot glue, and make something crazy. If you live near any kind of water source (and yes, the wading pool counts!), then check out this recycled pontoon boat idea from Green Kid Crafts. After all the tin can robots and cardboard cats and toilet paper roll castles that my girlies have made, they were thrilled to make something that really worked!

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
