Ten Summer Eco Crafts your Kids Will Love!

Here are 10 great summer crafts that will keep your kiddo happy all afternoon. Or at least for an hour, which honestly is all we need sometimes! :) The great thing is they’ll be creating fun crafts with bits and pieces of materials that we would have thrown away – but now – can happily repurpose. How clever is that?!

I hope you find some inspiration here to create a simple but super-fun afternoon together.
