It was a very,very rainy weekend at Urban Farmgirl (Thank you to everyone who came out,and braved the crazy weather and the mud!!!!). Unfortunately, that is the nature of doing outdoor shows. Sometimes, the birds are singing and the sun is shining, and sometimes you are ready for a raft to float by and save you. While I was putting my rain boots to good use,it suddenly hit me that the kids are almost out of school! That means summer! To celebrate the next few months,I made a hanging chart, and have a fun free summer printable to share with you.
It’s really quick project. I love making hanging charts. You just need to print the print onto heavy card stock, use two small pieces of craft trim, and white craft glue.
I even glued a few faux succulents on to dress it up a bit.
Cut the trim pieces slightly longer than your print.
Let dry.Use card stock to print when you can. I used a craft paper, and it wasn’t thick enough. Next time I will so it’s a bit sturdier.
After it dried, I glued the faux succulents on,
I tied some jute twine to hang.
I think it’s a fun way to bring in summer! It would also be great to use a white marker, or craft gel pen to circle the favorite activates! Now that the kids are older, we spend most of our time at the pool, and at camps. They are kind of at the place now though where they really want to hang with friends. I am not quite as important any more. They are slowly getting their own lives. It’s kind of fun, yet kind of sad to watch, but it’s good they are busy too.
Just right mouse click to save the printable (for personal use only).
Are you ready for summer? Breaking out the lemonade and popsicles yet? I am ready for some summer reading and hot weather!
