10 Summer Boredom Busters



Summer is upon us so the Creativity Connection team compiled a list of fun boredom busters for you and your kids!


Frozen Pops

Tempera Paint Project Ideas
Bright colors and quick to dry, these tempera paints will brighten your day in a snap! Tempera paint can be used for just about everything from creating signs to cheer for your favorite team to making decorations for your room. Frozen pops are a really “cool” way to paint this summer!


Decorate Your Own Sunnies

Creativity for Kids - Decorate Your Own Sunnies


Poolside craft! Whether at the beach or pool, sunglasses are a necessity and trendy accessory. Have fun in the sun by decorating 3 pairs of sunglasses.


Mosaic Bean Bug

Mosaic Bean Bug


The Mosaic Bean Bug is one of our most popular pins on Pinterest! This craft gives you complete creative freedom to create unique patterns created by the various colors of beans.  Explore other insects and animals that use intricate patterns and colors as camouflage and create a two-dimensional artwork using another natural or recycled product to create the mosaic pattern.


Do Art Travel Easel

Do Art Travel Easel

This portable art studio is the perfect gift for young artists and perfect for summer road trips! 30+ piece set includes Faber-Castell beeswax crayons, markers, chalk, white wipe board marker, colored pencils, sharpener, sponge and sketch pad. Multi-functional surfaces include a chalkboard, a white wipe board and a drawing easel.


Make Your Own Garden Patch


Topiary animals, formal gardens and huge animals made of flowers by artist Jeff Koons are examples of visual forms related to plants. Create a garden patch that will be either of a geometric or an image design.

Flower Crowns
Flower Crowns

This season’s hottest fashion accessory, Flower Crowns, is perfect for every day “bohemian” style, special occasions and even flower girl gifts! For younger girls, wear this special crown as you are transformed into your own magical environment. It’s fun to make: twist realistic paper roses, beautiful berry bunches and charming ribbon ivy around the twig bases. Add a little bling with the golden shimmer accent paint included. You decide on the color scheme and how you want to wear it – as a headband, crown or maybe across your forehead for a groovy retro look. Enough materials to make 4 adjustable crowns. Ages 7+

Chalk Art

Chalk Art
Create extraordinarily vibrant works of outdoor art. Learn how to use the landscape around you to create dimensional artwork, incorporating brick patterns, stones and grass. This set includes 12 sticks of ultra-rich and vibrantly colored chalks, 2 no-pinch “squishy” chalk holders, blending brush, blending foam and kneeling cushion. Store it all in the tidy carrying case when you’re finished. Ages 4+


Tempera Paint Sun Catchers

Tempera Paint Sun Catchers

Beautiful sun catchers made with tempera paints. Use vibrant colored tempera paints and create unique and fun sun catchers. Kids will love making their own art activity and then they can decorate their space with their masterpieces.


Nature Journal

Nature Journal

Children will create their own nature journal by learning to observe and record the natural world around them. By exploring the outdoors and collecting, drawing, painting, and writing, students will increase their interest and knowledge of nature, capturing their personal experience through art.

Seashell & Memory Frames
