Summer heat in the South is harsh. Stepping outside for just a couple of minutes makes you feel like you’re going to combust. So, I suggest you stay inside and do summer crafts. Alexa of The Swell Life has a paper lantern craft that is a great way to beat the heat while keeping your kids occupied.

Paper Lantern Craft

Making it is easy: Glue square pieces of tissue paper in rows to a plain paper lantern. This will occupy your kids for hours, while everyone gets to stay cool.

What other crafts would you like to try with your kids?
