Summer lovin’ means family time playing at the beach. Even if you can’t get to a beach in your area, you can make these sand and beach-inspired crafts and do some activities that will make it seem like you brought the beach to your own home!
Dinosaur month at momstown is full of fun crafts, silly dino snacks and lots of learning about different types of dinosaurs! We love this simple craft to get kids to think about where they dinosaurs would live. Using recycled and natural ingredients can make the perfect dinosaur habitat or diorama.
It is a traditional belief or story that on Valentine’s Day the birds find their mates. They have to hook up early in the year to make sure the children will be strong before the fall arrives. You can also use this as an opportunity to talk to your toddler about shapes!
Ever find yourself looking at beach rocks yours kids have picked up and wondered what to do with them? Painting rocks can be a fun, creative activity to do together.

Summer for momstown has meant simple crafts and often ones that include a bit of nature! If you’re down by the beach or lake with kids you’ve probably brought home a few rock souvenirs… now you can make them pretty!
Take a walk down the beach and fill your bucket with rocks, shells and sand for your very own beach collage. Or visit the dollar or craft store for seashells, rocks and coloured sand and make your very own picture.
