August Handprint Crafts: Summer Vacation and Back to School

How to make this sun at Family Crafts
How is it August already? Where we live, the kids still have another month before they head back to school. But for many friends down south, the school bells will be ringing (ringin'!) soon.

Here are handprint crafts for August - I picked some that are perfect if you're still on vacation, as well as one for those heading back to school.

For those still on school vacation:

And for those heading back to school:
And last but not least, here's how to make a handprint butterfly whether it's a symbolic commentary on your child's year ahead, or just as a final celebration of summer.

How are you celebrating August and the end of summer days and the return of school days?

I just compiled all the Handprint crafts that have been featured, read the full list here.

An fascinating discussion is value comment. I feel that it's best to write extra on this matter, it might not be a taboo subject but usually individuals are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers usa online casino
