Summer Ideas from Readers

Welcome! New to ABC and 123? Please check out our FAQ in the sidebar.

The warm summer months continue to inspire our readers!

Elise at Inspiration Surrounds, Creativity Abounds recently wrote about a colored sand painting that her two and three year olds did. It is a perfect toddler activity as there was painting involved, coloring sand, gluing and pouring sand.

When the sun wouldn't cooperate by coming out during their Sun Themed Week, Stacie at The Amazing Mess made a paper plate sun catcher.

They also did this Shadow Guessing Game that results in a basic table setting placemat.
Sparkling Adventures sent us their caterpillar and butterfly craft that is also fun to dance with.
Kami at Nurturing the Tender Years made these pipe cleaner leis.

Blow giant bubbles with Valerie at The Frugal Family Fun Blog and
then make watermelon wrapping paper out of potato prints.

Don't forget to make some Pudding Pops, as seen on Mommy Topics, to cool off with after a full day of summer fun!

Ice Cream in a Can sounds like a perfect summer treat.
