When I was a child, my summer consisted of gymnastics classes, barbecues, swimming at the beach and doing crafts with the babysitter.

Now that I'm older, my activities and interests have changed, but I do check Pinterest on a daily basis for recipes, DIY ideas, home decor and more. I don't have kids (yet!), but I have a board filled with fun kids activities for when the right time comes.

If you're looking for things to do now that your kids are out of school, here are just a few fun and easy craft ideas I found on Pinterest. Enjoy!
