It’s sometimes the simplest crafts that are the best, and this fruit art and craft collection is fun to put together. Once you’ve made each summer fruit craft, there are a few fun things that you can do with the collection. For example, put magnets on the back and put them on the fridge. Or cluster them together and frame them for a piece of art to give away. They make a great gift for kids to make for the grandparents.

*If you are wondering what I mean by “in the bag”, look no further than the “fill your bag” tab or just click on THIS LINK. In an effort to make crafting with your kids more accessible and doable, to fit your very busy lifestyle, I am simplifying the process by giving you the road map so that you only need to prep one time, no running to the store repeatedly because you are missing one obscure item. Then you have the freedom to create with your kids for hours, any time, anywhere, at a moments notice.

Step 1

  • Glue together 3 large popsicle sticks using Elmers glue, forming a triangle
  • Let the glue dry thoroughly
  • While you are at it, make several…like 5 at least…so that you are ready to make other projects too. Just keep them in your bag.
