Here is a fun idea I came across while researching fun, free things to do with kids over the summer. Take some large rubber bands (like the kind that are around your broccoli when you buy it), and cut them up into pieces. Glue the pieces into a shape, picture, or design, onto a piece of thick cardboard. Then ink or paint it up and off you go! If anyone has ideas about long or short-term projects/activities to do with kids over the summer, send me an email and I'll share them: firstname.lastname@example.org.
