Indoor Activities For Summer

Summer is here! As much as we are enjoying the picnics, trips to the beaches and parks, some days it is just too hot out. We are also in Hurricane season, which means lots of rain. So for those days when we can’t go outside, having a list of indoor activities on hand is essential!  Here is a round-up of some of my favorite summer crafts and other fun activities for when you’re stuck inside with the kids.
