Summer Fun Ideas from landeelu.comHi! I’m Landee from and I am so happy to be here on Kristen’s blog today to share some of my favorite summer ideas! When I think of summer I think of casual get togethers and parties, the 4th of July, easy kid crafts, making memories and firing up the grill. Basically all of my favorite things! And it all has to be done with little effort and a lot of enjoyment, right? Right.

First is this fun party banner I made from bandanas. Bandanas SCREAM summertime to me, for whatever reason, so I wanted to make a long banner I could pull out for fun summer parties again & again. This was all done without any sewing and it came together quickly! Click on the links below each picture to take you to the full tutorial/post.

Kids love a good laid back summer schedule but they also like to have some creative things to do as well… if you have little ones at home then I know you already know that. šŸ™‚ My daughter loved creating this necklace for herself (and one for her friend) one lazy summer afternoon. She had complete creative control and she loved every second!

If you’re hosting a little backyard get together where s’mores are the main event, here’s a cute idea to have the ingredients packaged and easy to hand out to your guests! Some paper sacks and the free printable tags are all you need to make a night around the firepit a little more special.
