  1. Love these ideas! My kids are going to have so much fun this summer. Can’t wait to try out the paper plate butterfly craft. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Thanks for sharing this! We recently moved and have a carpet cleaner coming out to freshen up the house. I want a fun activity to do with the kids while my carpets are drying. I think I’ll take them to the park to paint some rock treasures. Should be a beautiful day out here in Olympia and I think that will be awesome! Thanks again.
