Summer is finally here, which means school’s out, backyard barbecues and pool parties take over the calendar, and long hazy days are spent with family and friends. However, after a few weeks, those summer days can start to feel extra lengthy—and creative ways to keep the kids entertained might feel like a lot of work.

But don’t worry, mamas, we’re here to help. Below, we’ve rounded up 10 cute summer crafts and activities that will keep your little ones engaged and having fun until back to school season arrives. From rock painting and friendship bracelet-making to DIY sponge water bombs and a cool crayon recycler activity from editor-favorite brand KiwiCo (use code TEMKIWI for $10 off a KiwiCo Store purchase of $50+!) these projects are sure to add excitement and creativity to any summer day.
