Getting Crafty: 5 Warm-weather Projects for Kids.

When summer shows up in Minnesota, we surely know how to make the most of its short stay. Between the park, the pool, and picnics, "bored" won't be in your kiddos vocabulary. Continue the warm-weather fun with crafts inspired by the season!

Cupcake-liner Ice Cream Cones


A bright and colorful craft that will let the kids dream up their most delicious cone. Double scoop, triple? Sprinkles, chocolate chips? Vanilla, cotton candy? Let them be the culinary masterminds. We highly suggest serving this craft up with a side of real ice-cream.  Source: I Heart Craft Things.
