10 Kids’ Crafts Worth Making This Summer

School is out and it’s time to get the kids busy for the summer! I’ve pulled together a collection of ideas for you to keep them occupied – and several are scrapbooking. Kids love to scrapbook! It’s fun for them to look over old memories and pull them together in a creative way. This school days scrapbook is a great way for children to assemble last year’s memorabilia.

Kids can also do the same online. If you are looking for a digital way to pull memories together, I recommend Wendy’s Fresh Pic’d Summer app, which is a fun and easy way to get a scrapbook going in minutes. Are you ready to get creative? Click through the jump for more kids summer craft ideas!
