Summertime, and the livin’s easy… we love summer because of the tank top weather, the profusion of natural life all around us, the unscheduled days, and the bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables (fresh, sun-ripened tomatoes from the garden!).

To us, summer means hiking, beach trips, nature art, water play, and all kinds of fun summer crafts.

Here is our ultimate list of summer crafts and activities to help you sail through the summer months with a little more ease and a lot more fun and creativity.

Let’s hope there’s plenty of unscheduled free time for pure play and creative expression, but we all know that’s best balanced with a few good activities up our sleeves.

So here’s a list of awesome summer crafts, art projects that are perfect for summer, and other summer activities for you and your family to pick and choose from all summer long.
