Summertime is a time for enjoying outside activities. But it’s also a time for thunderstorms, and if you have kids at home or grandkids visiting, when a rainy day hits, you need indoor activities. Having some basic craft supplies handy will make for a fun day and keep the kids from being glued to the TV or their various devices.

Here’s a simple project to get you started. Print out this skateboarding, pigtailed girl for the little ones to color with crayons or colored pencils.

Mount the finished drawing on a piece of colored construction paper. If you have pinking shears, trim the edges of the construction paper for a decorative look. Glue a piece of ribbon to the top back corners for hanging.

Glue on buttons, beads, and ribbons for added decoration.

Stop back next Monday for a coloring project for the boys.

Awesome! Today in Philly, we'll have kids inside but not because of thunderstorms. According to the forecast, the heat will be unbearable. Hello, Summer Heatwave!!!
