It’s finally summer in Sweden and we’re taking time off from Pysselbolaget! We will be back again in August with new ideas and fun projects. Will you manage? I hope so. If you get bored all our previous projects can be found here.
Signing off with a video go our book. We wish you a wonderful wonderful summer! See you again in August.
The other day I was talking to a friend about summer activities for the kids. We talked about how easy the kids end up by a computer when they run out of ideas of what to do. One idea we came up with was to make fortune tellers with fun summer activities, for example ”go for a swim”, “skip rope”, “read” or perhaps ”bake”!
For those of you who like the idea, I have designed summer fortune tellers to print out. Patterns and numbers are included. All you need to do is print, fold and fill them with activities.
You can choose between three different summer fruit fortune tellers; watermelon, kiwi or lemon.
If you don’t remember how to fold a fortune teller, check out our tutorial video! Or give the paper to your children.
When the fortune tellers are folded, simply fill them with activities! What sort of activities will you fill yours with?
One of my favorit projects from our book Pyssla med mig is the Candy Cactus. Helena from Craft and Creativity and her daughter brought one over for Freja a while ago and it was a success. I used to make these when I was a kid, but had forgotten how fun they were to make – and give. These two are for Freja’s teachers. They go really well in our new watermelon pots, don’t you think!
