Create a Summer-Fun Gallery with your Kids!

I'm so excited to announce a special summer series here at Redfly Creations that is just for kids!  Our series begins today and will take place on Fridays until the beginning of August.  There will be craft ideas, recipes and fun activities for you to do with your kiddos this summer.  They will all be tested by my kiddos first in order to make sure they're a hit.  :)  

So, today's activity is to create a wall filled with your summer memories that you add to each day.  Last year we had fun making and writing in a summer journal.  We did a pretty good job writing about the fun events we participated in.  This year,  I decided we would work on our art skills.  In order to do this, we came up with Summer Memory Gallery Wall using index cards!  Since our Homework Station Wall is not in use during the summer, we decided it would work just perfectly to showcase our Gallery.

The kiddos take a card and draw something that was fun for them each day.  In our case, we are having just one of three children draw a card each day.  Depending on your number of kids and wall space, you can switch it up however you want.  

We have fun looking at our Summer Gallery Wall.   We've already made some great memories!

Feel free to print this "Summer Fun- Kid's Edition" sign here and join us next Friday for the next fun activity!

Happy Summer!
