Top Pinterest Ideas for the Children's Summer Holidays


Summer holidays are great, but for those stay-at-home days with nothing planned, it can be difficult to keep everyone entertained! Know the feeling?

We've started to wonder how the world coped without Pinterest. Bursting with fantastic ideas, Pinterest is the perfect place to inspire you and your little ones.

Don’t think that crafty ideas mean fancy materials and a whole load of mess - below we've collated three of our favourite Pinterest projects that are fun AND free!

Fairy House

Make a Fairy House!
All you need is a bit of spare garden, a plastic Tupperware and some cardboard.
Anything else you can find laying around the house is a bonus!

Pintrest bored jar

Bored Jar
This is quite a popular idea on Pinterest and we think it’s FAB. Banish those ‘I’m boreddd’ moments with a jar full of things to do.
The rule is – once picked out, there’s no swapping! See the image for some ideas to get you started.

Pintrest toilet roll races

Toilet Roll Races
How great are these?! Kids will love coming up with different designs and drivers – all you need is some old toilet rolls and bottle caps.
The fun doesn't end once they've been made; make a track and get racing! 

Happy crafting! YM x
