Packed with fun summer activities for kids!

It is great to take the day a bit slower and enjoy the sunshine. Though summer is leisurely (and we love it) there also seems MORE TIME to fill with the kids… fear not. I have LOTS of Fun Summer Crafts heading your way (as always), but also thought it would be useful to pull together this list of Summer Crafts for Preschoolers!

I often find there is a grey area between summer crafts for toddlers and preschoolers – the differentiation is often based on the development and interests of your child…but I do think many of these lovely Summer Crafts for Preschoolers are suitable for the slightly young toddler too! I hope you agree with me! We have another section on Summer Crafts for Kids (are more general age group) coming soon. So WATCH THIS SPACE! Obvious Summer Crafts include How to Press Flowers and DIY Bubble Recipe.. but there is SO MUCH MORE to Summer!

As before, I have tried to group this extensive collection of summer crafts into browse sections. SOMETIMES a craft fits into two areas, so I have repeated them. Hopefully that will be useful, rather than irritating! Your Preschoolers may also love these 5 Free Beach Coloring Pages too. Do check them out!

Let’s take a peak at the craft projects I have for you today! Needless to say kids of all ages can enjoy these, but I am hoping their are especially fun for toddlers and preschoolers!

Summer Crafts for Preschoolers

I have tried to group the tutorials a little bit by theme, for quick and easy browsing. I have also kept to simple materials, avoiding the need for unnecessary purchases (e.g. t-shirts for tie dying or hacking up pool noodles.. save that for the older kids and keep this summer inexpensive!).
