This weekend, celebrate summer with a lovely lemonade stand, cool al fresco crafts and other keep-'em-busy ideas from a few of our favorite kid-centric blogs and websites.
One of the best summer sights is kids selling frosty cups of lemonade to thirsty neighbors. Check out One Charming Party's adorable DIY lemonade stand with simple instructions and free printable signs so your budding beverage tycoon can set up a stand of his own.
And why not add some yummy sweets to the menu? These cute strawberry-and-cream elves from Weelicious are the perfect treat to pair with frosty lemonade. The little fruit people are incredibly simple to make (and healthy to eat!) -- plus your kids will get a kick out of creating these instant masterpieces, complete with chocolate chip googly eyes.
To add some summer joy to your home, consider exanding your kid's arts and crafts station beyond the playroom to the sunny kitchen or relaxing porch, simply with the addition of pint-sized chair or pretty bookcase. Your little one can happily doodle in his own nook while you whip up dinner. Check out this genius Childhood 101 post on creating livable kid-sized spaces in every room.
Or try a fun at-home craft to enjoy in the backyard or at the beach. These colorful DIY paper plate frisbees (courtesy of Make and Takes) are inexpensive and light enough for little ones who still have trouble throwing a standard plastic frisbee. We think a picnic is in order!
