Lately most of our days have been spent cooling off at the pool, eating popsicles, and enjoying the slower rhythms of summer.
Towards the end of July I am always on the hunt for fun things to keep my girls occupied. Since it’s so hot this time of year, staying outside all day isn’t always an option.
What better way to beat the heat than with an afternoon full of crafts?
