Finally it’s here! That warm, sunny weather that we all have not-so-patiently been waiting for … the summer sun and fun always put me in a great mood. I mean, how can you not be happy when the sun is shining? I love being outdoors working in my flower gardens, playing with the kids and watching them ride their bikes in the driveway and of course, SWIMMING! My family spends most of the summer at my sister’s house. She has a pool, which means that my kids would like to live there if they could. For this month’s DIY I thought it would be fun for them to make a cover-up to put over their bathing suit on the rides back and forth to my sister’s. And what outfit would be complete without some fun shoes to match? Both of these DIYs are fun projects for the kids to make. I mean what child doesn’t enjoy a squirt gun, especially one that squirts paint?!
