Resort-inspired Summer Crafts For Kids

The end of school is just around the corner and that means summer fun is about to commence. Crafting is always a fun activity for those long summer days, and we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites that play off the resort’s natural setting.

Nature Mobile
Give all those treasures you find on your nature hikes a proper showcase with a nature mobile that can be planted or carried around. You’ll just need a large branch, your favorite nature finds, yarn and tape or glue. Just anchor the large branch and hang your leaves, small rocks, pinecones, acorns and other fun finds from the branches.

Rock Necklace
Create nature-inspired jewelry for girls or boys with a colorful or brown leather strap. Just wrap a small stone in wire and attach it to enough leather to fit around your neck and voila! A rock necklace! recommends kids using them as friendship necklaces where best friends will write their names on the back of the stone pendant and trade them with their bestie.

Towel Cover-ups
Turn your poolside towel into a stylish cover up! While this craft requires some sewing skill, you can have fun picking out a colorful towel and the embellishments and buttons to match to create a one-of-a-kind look for the pool this summer. Click here for more detail on this craft that is great for girls and their friends.
