It's Summer (Trying to Keep the Kids Busy) Time! - Part 2

As I trolled through blogs and Pinterest pins, I found an assortment of activities, fun and games to keep kids busy. I thought I would share some of these here this week. Today's post is things to do, including creating journals and decorative covers.
