Here on the Gulf Coast, Summer is not as much of an outdoor season as the rest of the year. It’s hot now, and it rains nearly daily in our subtropical area. No matter where you live, there are indoor days. I found 5 ideas for indoor Summer learning fun. Each of these ideas use items that you probably already have in the house.
Expand on an Image by ArtMommie: Glue a magazine clipping onto a piece of paper, and have the child complete the drawing.
Mini Pocket Notebooks from Cereal Boxes by Creme de la Craft: These Moleskine-like notebooks are inexpensive & help you recycle! Use cereal boxes, decorative paper, and white paper to create little notebooks.
Fabric Scrap Paper Doll Kit by This Mama Makes Stuff: Our oldest daughter has created these without knowing about this tutorial, but the tutorial linked gives you 6 printable animal or doll templates.
Egg Crate & Wrench Xylophone by Almost Unschooling: Create a xylophone from Daddy’s wrench set
Build a Chain Reaction with Popsicle/Craft Sticks by Frugal Fun for Boys: This tutorial includes a video fo the chain reaction that occurs when you let go of the final popsicle stick.

Thanks for the info! I was looking for something semi-structured to keep my children busy this summer and this might be just the thing!
