Since the yard games are always such a hit I came up with an even easier option: DIY flamingo ring toss.
It’s super affordable, only requires a few supplies, and takes less than five minutes to set up. Win-win!
Choose a nice open spot in your yard, and stick the flamingo legs in deep enough to prevent the flamingo to fall over. You can add them randomly in a group. That’s it—I told you it was laughably easy!
Best part: If you don’t have a yard you could get some terra cotta pots and paint them in fun colors. Just add in some dirt or sand and stick the flamingos in each pot.
While we’re on the subject of flamingos, I have another fun project — DIY flamingo snow globes!
This is one of our favorite projects ever and we’ve made tons of them together and have given them out as gifts. People love them!
With only a few supplies, these snow globes are much easier to make than most people expect, and they’re very affordable.
You can substitute any small toy or figurine that your kid is into if flamingos aren’t their thing.
The perfect projects to make toward the end of summer are DIY back to school teacher gifts, and I have a fun one for you made out of upcycled tin cans!
With some paint and creativity you can turn a basic tin ban into a flower pot or pencil holder pretty easily. This is such an easy craft for kids!
We plan on giving one to Vivi’s teacher on the first day of school!
I hope these 5 DIY art and craft projects have given you some fun ideas and inspiration to entertain your kids over summer break.
You might even find that these projects can be enjoyable for parents too!
I’m so happy I have chosen to involve Vivienne in my DIY projects since she was little. She’s always so proud of her creations and has learned so much over the years. She’s even gotten to join me on quite a few live TV segments over the years, which is so exciting for both of us.
If you choose to make any of these projects, I’d love to see the end result. Just tag me in your Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook photos and I’ll share them.
