Printable Crafts for Endless Summer Memories

School supplies are already on sale, and summertime hours are winding down, but there are still more days to fill. Whether your kids can’t wait for school to start, or are cramming in as many summer activities as they can, there are ideas here for everyone. Stay cool inside with coloring pages or fun, printable worksheets, or grab a glass of lemonade and get outside to play. But before you do, get a boost of inspiration here!

For Summer Time Only

What could be more refreshing this time of year than a cold glass of lemonade? A few printable stickers and posters can make putting up a lemonade stand easier and more inviting to potential customers. There are several designs and lemonade recipes to choose from. Summer camp is now in session, too! Check out these ideas to send a camp care package to kids who are missing mom and dad this time of year.

Try something a little different this year to help pass long afternoon hours. Invite the neighborhood kids to a backyard photo booth. Provide dress-up clothes, as well as these free, printable props. Your kids will all wish summer would last a little bit longer.

When it’s Too Hot Outside

The final days of summer mean getting dusty wheels turning in little heads and getting back into a routine. But learning doesn’t have to be boring. Your kids may just need a jump-start. Get out the colors and print a few of these coloring pages and activity sheets. Summer themes and scenes will make them want to sit down for an afternoon of creative fun and learning.

Record summer memories, make a list of all that you and your family need to cram in before cool days are upon us, or set a schedule to live out the full potential of each remaining day. Just don’t let TV time take over what is left of this summer. Limit your family’s time in front of the television with this printable schedule. Get your kids involved and let them share in the responsibility of maximizing the hours that remain this summer.

Printable Cold-Weather Craft & Game Diversions

This is the time of year when an unexpected snow day can quickly interrupt the regularly-scheduled programming of your week and leave you with the sudden opportunity to have some fun. Whether you’re a child relishing a surprise day home from school or an adult thrilled to delay that important presentation at work just one more day, a city-wide snow delay can present a buffet of unanticipated distractions. Do you: (A) spend all day marathon binge-watching past seasons of BBC’s “Sherlock,” (B) read the latest rousing installment of Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” trilogy, or (C) attempt to inject some craftiness into your otherwise impromptu free day? Why not give these easy printable options a try!

For the Kiddos                   

Go the classic route and help the kids print some custom memory cards to hone their powers of recall. And if you think they’d appreciate something with a little more pizzazz, show them how to put together these whimsical bird and snake finger puppets. This funky body flipbook or these amusing animal and superhero masks could also prove just the creative tickets to quickly pass the afternoon away.
