This is the month when my kids start getting bored.

The excitement of Summer is starting to fade and before we know school will be here.

So I put together some fun kid activities and kid crafts to keep this month colorful and fun around here!

Here is an activity that won’t break the bank.

Gather a bunch of Sticks from the backyard and have the kiddos create art with them.

I think they would look adorable inside of a jar for the kid’s room.

and having cream shower caps to catch them!

  3. I’ve actually done those lacing cards with a bunch of little peeps at my son’s 4th b’day party last year. It was fun, but any younger and it’s hard. Thanks for the links. :)
