The days are nearing where the kids will be off to school and you worry less about what daytime activities will keep them occupied.  BUT, before you get ready to send them back to school, why don’t you cherish this time left and craft some projects together (or tell the kids to create some of these easy crafts to show you when you get home).  No needles or hooks required!
