Summer Craft Ideas – with the help of Mila and Pheebs.

We have been sent a Mila and Pheebs Craft Box free of charge to help us create some Summer Crafts.

Summer crafts are a must. With the six weeks holidays to keep children busy, especially when you live in the UK (Our Summer can be very wet at times) it is necessary to keep your craft box well stocked. I was pretty delighted when we got sent the July craft box from Mila and Pheebs to help us come up with some summer craft ideas.

We love our Mila and Pheebs craft boxes every month there is a different theme and this is half the excitement for my girls – trying to guess what it could be.

This month was the very apt travel edition. It contained:

  • Greeting cards and envelopes
  • Create your own travel puzzle
  • Travel wordsearch
  • Colour-in postcard
  • Aeroplanes Eraser
  • Glitter Pencil
  • Boat sharpener
  • Foil stickers
  • Travel criss cross
  • Foam travel journal
  • Travel colouring in sheets
  • Alphabet glitter foam stickers
  • Super washable fine tip felt pens
  • Design your own luggage tags

Summer Craft Ideas – Make your Own Puzzles.

Meme got started on creating her own travel puzzle with the felt tip pens – its so lovely watching her little imagination work. Such a fun little craft something she has not done before and also something that you can make yourself at home. One of the reason I love craft subscription boxes or craft magazines is the ideas that you can get from them. We have since made our own puzzles from colouring in a picture and then cutting them into difference pieces.

Make your own Luggage Tag

Harri got busy playing with the alphabet glitter stickers and the luggage tags.  I encouraged her to try and spell out her name with the letters which she did. Harri has never been one for learning, as soon as I try to practice her letters or write her name she just has no interest as all. However I have found that combining learning through play really keeps her concentration as she is having fun as she is learning.

DIY Greeting Cards

Harri also enjoyed writing greeting cards for her friends and putting them in the envelopes to send in the post. Greeting cards and postcards  are so easy to make at home. It feels special sending someone you love some mail in the post. My girls love popping to the post box to post their special mail. Definitely one to try this Summer.

  1. It’s the first time I have heard about this craft box. It sounds fab, and perfect to have up your sleeve for a rainy day, or even a trip out visiting family. That jigsaw puzzle looks wonderful, I quite fancy making one myself! Thank you for sharing with the #DreamTeam. x

  2. WOW, that looks fab! I can’t wait till G gets a bit bigger to be able to do this sort of stuff with her. She’s only 2 at the minute so would be a bit wasted. Thanks for linking up to #fortheloveofblog
