Make Mushrooms for Your Fairy Garden
Fairy gardens are so creative to make and lovely to display in the home! This project will require some items you may not have at home, but it’s a great way to take your fairy garden to the next level.
Change up the design to a sun, flower, flip-flop, or another great summer icon and do a salt painting of it!
Just like with the salt painting activity, simply choose a summery design to cut out instead of a Christmas tree to adjust this Marble Painting project for summertime.
Wood Engraving Stamp
To do the wood engraving stamp, you’ll need some specialized tools for wood carving. This activity is more advanced and would be great for teens to keep them off screens for a while!
Or, have Dad quickly create some wood stamps so that younger children (even preschoolers) could enjoy the customized stamps.
