Paper bag puppets, easy craft ideas to keep you kids busy this summer, DIY crafts for kidsI love all time I get to spend with my kids over summer break. BUT when it is over 100% degrees outside and they need to play inside they start running out of things to do.  That is when it is good to go back to the basics and let them be creative and use their imagination. My kids made paper bag puppets this weekend and had so much fun creating them. All you need is paper lunch bags and some markers. I let the kids each make several puppets.  They they put on a puppet show and laughed and told silly stories with their new creations.  I then had them pick one bag to pack a lunch in and we took it to the park to have a picnic. What a fun day :).
