Hot Stuff: Summer Crafts for Kids

"It's hot!" "I'm bored!" "There's nothing to do!" Ah, the familiar refrains of summer... 

The dog days of summer leave many parents and caretakers desperate to find something -- anything! -- to keep the kids busy. Take a break from those monotonous moans and help yourself to this guide to inexpensive summer crafts for kids to indulge their creative juices -- inside or outside!
