Hot Weather Fun: Summer Vase

When boredom looms and the weather’s hot, get everyone involved in summer crafts.

Summertime Vase: A simple vase can be made from a soup can. Be sure to file off any sharp spurs on the inside opening. Cut a piece of construction paper to fit around the sides of the can. This will be glued to the outside of the can, but first it needs to be decorated. Decorate your paper by drawing a summer scene on the paper and then glue on glitter or small stickers. Another idea is for you to write your name in large letters, and glue beans, seeds, or glitter to the letters. Let all glue dry before attaching the paper to the outside of the can. Add water and fresh flowers or leave dry for dry flowers.

This summer, crafts should be at the top of everyone’s to do list!
