Summer Paper Crafts For Kids

I am definitely looking for things to keep my kids busy these long, hot summer days & this paper city has been on my list for a while. It's a free printable paper city complete with people, vehicles & helicopters. Available at the Made by Joel blog, which by the way is awesome! I am now a Made by Joel subscriber.





This kept the girls busy for quite some time. We decided to bring out the markers & color the city. Sadie also felt it necessary to give the people faces. Just eyes were not enough for her. I think this one with the glasses is supposed to be Sadie. :)



Another awesome free download is this lace up dolls set designed by my friend Lauralee at Yellow Mums. Lauralee gave a laminated set of these to my girls just before our long car drive across the country when we moved from Ohio to Las Vegas. My girls loved them & still play with them today. They are just so clever & cute! Think how great these would be as a quiet activity to keep in your church bag!

Wow, that paper city is super cool - I just printed one off for my chickadee. She is going to love the helicopter. And I just spent a really long time going back through that guy's archives...talk about some amazing creativity!
