Summer is full of fun activities. Picnics, barbecues, parties, vacations and so much more takes place during this time of year. How about an ongoing project?
Get a scrapbook and each week fill it in with pictures and memories for the week. As this craft would last all summer, it makes it economical and the family can always relive the summer through the pages of this book.
