Crafts, Kid's Crafts, Summer
By Kid’s Crafts Contributor Stephanie, from the Blog A Geek in Glasses.
While on vacation at the beach this summer, we drank a lot of water in bottles. We filled the empty bottles with sand to bring home. We also collected little things from the beach such as feathers, drift wood, shells and pebbles. Then we picked up some trinkets from the shops around the island. On night at the beach house we created a little eye-spy game in the bottle for the kids to have a new activity for the ride home. A fun way to remember the trip and create a fun toy.

Tank tops are a pretty versatile piece of clothing. You can wear a tank top with shorts during the summer or pants during those days that go from hot in the morning to warmer in the afternoon. During the winter, you can put a cardigan over a tank top with slacks for a nicer look. The problem is that inexpensive tank tops tend to look boring and plain, while the fancier tank tops are more expensive. By making and adding fabric yo-yos to a tank top, you can take it from boring to fabulous.
