This week we created an enormous sidewalk chalk mural on the brick wall in the backyard (in between leaping in the pool, blowing bubbles in the yard, and kicking the ball around in the park.)
Earlier this summer we built and painted birdhouses which we hung on the back fence to feed the neighbourhood wildlife.
Last summer we made and decorated our own wooden wind chimes which hang next to our patio door.
And one day, out of creative crafty ideas, we spread an enormous roll of craft paper across the lawn and painted a giant mural.
Just because it's summer and all our time is spent outdoors is no reason kids can't be creative!
