Easy Summer Craft for Kid
This no fuss summertime craft is perfect for little ones all the way up to big kids! You can purchase just a few frugal supplies and make a fruit-themed photo frame to capture your summertime memories!
- White Cardstock Paper
- Safety Scissors
- Color-Coding Labels (yellow, pink, and green)
- Fine-Tipped Markers
To begin, gather your materials.
Next, 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.
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.
After that, invite your child to place the color-coding labels onto the photo frame however they would like.

Next, your child can use the fine-tipped 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 with some black dots for seeds.
For the limes, use a green marker to add the segments, seeds, and lime peel.
Lastly, attach a photo to the back of the frame. You can mail your frame to faraway family or friends.
Alternatively, you can display your fruity photo frame proudly in your home, office, or classroom!
