Surprise the parents with some bright and cheery homemade
decorations. Take the kids around the backyard or neighborhood on a scavenger
hunt for rocks of all sizes. When you’ve found a few, take them back to the
house and wash off the dirt. Then, let the kids paint whatever designs, colors,
and words on the rocks. When they’ve dried off, stick them outside the front
door for the parents to ooh and ahh over as soon as they walk in!

Make your own playdough
Why buy playdough when you can make it yourself? Just mix 1
cup of flour, 1 cup of water, 2 teaspoons of cream of tartar, 1/4 cup of salt,
and 2 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a 2-quart saucepan. Cook over low-medium
heat and stir it constantly. Once it begins to thicken, add in a few drops of
food coloring. Leave the dough to cool
off on wax paper or a plate, and then you’re free to make all the playdough cookies
or people that you want. For extra fun,
make a few colors and store them in airtight containers to use again another

Tie-dye with Sharpies
Ask the parents for a couple old white pillows or pillowcases
and spruce them up with Sharpies. Use as many colors as you want and go all out
with your drawings. When your masterpieces are complete, pour some rubbing
alcohol in a spray bottle and spray your artwork. Make sure you wait for them
to dry before you rest your heads on them or your newest designs will be stuck
on your face.

Get fruity with your arts and crafts using the fruit of your
choice. Take some apples, oranges, pears, or whatever you want out of the
fridge and cut them in half. Then take any colored paint, dip the fruits in,
and stamp away on any fabric, paper, or board. This will make for a very unique
(and healthy!) pattern.

Homemade bubble trouble
Blow up the backyard this summer with these DIY bubbles.
It’s super easy and all the ingredients can be found in your kitchen. All you
need is 2 cups of water, ½ cup of liquid dish soap, 1/8 cup of corn syrup, and
a large mixing container. Pour all the ingredients into the container and shake
it up. Wait a few minutes so the bubbles to settle, and then fill the backyard with
as many bubbles as you can!

Ready, set, race!
Recycle those toilet paper rolls and make your own racecars for you and the kids to race. First, lay the rolls down on their sides and cut out a small square on the top middle for your driver to sit in. Then paint your rolls however you’d like- get creative! When you’re done, cut out small wheels from a piece of cardboard box and paint them black. Take the wheels and attach them to the sides of the rolls using brad pins, put your driver in the seat, and you’re ready to roll!
