It’s that time of year when school is getting out, and you’re trying to come up with ideas to keep your kids busy during the day. Between baseball, soccer, swimming and play dates, your kids will probably need new things at home to keep them busy. Don’t go out and buy a bunch of new toys. Shop at our local Just Between Friends Sale for gently used toys, or try these great DIY glittery summer craft ideas at home.

Fairy Dust Glitter Gel
This is a great idea if you don’t mind your kids painting their bodies. Make the glitter gel inside and then send them outside to paint their arms and legs. We found this idea on the Flour On My Face blog. Arlene delivers instructions and ideas on how to put together a whole fairy party!
