Fruity Photo Frame Summer Craft for Kids
This easy-prep, summer craft is perfect for all ages from little ones all the way up to big kids. With just a few inexpensive supplies your kids can make a fruit-themed photo frame to capture their favorite summertime memories! Let’s grab our supplies and get started!
- White cardstock
- Safety scissors
- Color-coding labels (yellow, pink, and green)
- Fine-tip markers
How to Make the Fruity Photo Frame
To begin, gather your materials and invite your child to fold the sheet of cardstock paper in half.
Use a pencil to draw a guideline for your child to cut.
After that, your child can use safety scissors to carefully cut out the center of the frame, as shown below.
Next, open the folded frame and lay it on a flat surface.
While the labels are still on the sheet, use the scissors to cut the green and pink color-coding labels in half.
Invite your child to place the color-coding labels onto the photo frame however they would like.

When the stickers are attached to the frame, your child can use the fine-tip markers to add the details to the fruit, as shown.
For the pineapples, use brown marker to draw the crosshatch design onto the yellow color-coding label, and green marker to add the leaves on top.
For the watermelons, your child can add a green outline under the curve of the color-coding label and add some black dots for seeds.
Use a green marker to add the segments, seeds, and peel to make the limes.
Finally, attach a photo to the back of the frame. You can mail your frame to faraway family or friends or create a fun, summertime bulletin board in the classroom!
