Want free fun this summer?

Below are some of our favorite free – or nearly free – summer crafts. I've included some sewing patterns, upcycling ideas, and affordable alternatives to store bought basics like ice cream and sunscreen.

What's not to love?

~ * ~ * ~ * ~

Free: Make a summer bucket list. We do this for most seasons and love it!

Free: Recycle a soda bottle into a free backyard sprinkler.

Free: Whip up some cute garden markers with twigs and letter stamps.

Free: Create a terrarium from a mason jar.

Free: Make headbands out of scraps from your stash.

Free or Cheap: Homemade bubble wands and bubble juice anyone?

Free or Cheap: Sew a sunhat or a bonnet for your little one. Use upcycled linens or clothes to make these for nothing.

Cheap: Homemade sunscreen. Absolutely.

Cheap: Make sorbet without an ice cream maker or turn your homemade yogurt into frozen yogurt dots.

Cheap: Homemade natural finger paints are messy fun and so is using flowers and leaves as your paint brush.

    We made your bubble wands yesterday. 🙂 I had a very impatient 3 and 5 year old on my hands so we just made a quick circle out of the wire and attached them to sticks but they love them and we had so much fun. Thank you so much for the inspiration!
