When August rolls around in Texas, we don’t go outside much. It rarely cools off at night, which means it’s pretty much HOT all day. It’s no fun playing in 100 degree weather unless you’re swimming right?!
To make the rest of summer a little more bearable, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite crafts and kids activities that are perfect for the indoors. Bookmark or Pin this page, so you can have it handy when you need it.
Whether you have a rainy day or it’s just way to hot to venture outdoors, these fun ideas will give kids hours of entertainment. I hope you enjoy them!
