Crafty days in June! These days aren’t specifically about crafts rather the important and fun celebrated days of June that you can use for crafty inspiration with your children. We love days that are dedicated to special holidays and events that we can make crafts and fun activities for! For children, this gives the opportunity to talk about the special day and adults to reflect on why the day is important. Or maybe it is just a day for celebrating something fun either way we don’t really need much of an excuse to have some crafty fun!
