Seashells are a tangible reminder of summer getaways and fun relaxing moments at the beach. Other than gathering them as collective pieces, seashells can also double as decoration for your home. If you’ve collected a handful from your trips, here are some quick and easy ways to create a beach-inspired space.

DIY Candles

Clam, conical, and moon-type shells have a hollow core that can be used to hold homemade candles. You can simply brush the shells clean and leave to dry, or soak them in a mild bleach solution overnight. Once clean and dry, fill them with hot wax, insert the wick, and then leave to cool.

Summer is the perfect time for chilling and relaxation, and what better way to enjoy the warm weather by cooling off outside at your own porch. Porches not only provide shade and protection from the sun, they also serve as an entertainment area for family and friends. Here are some quick ways to freshen up a porch this summer.

Fresh Paint

Add color by applying a fresh coat of paint on your walls, ceiling, or floor. Use light summer hues to keep the ambiance bright and soothing. The floors may just need some touch ups to cover bumps and scrapes. Sand off the old paint before applying a new color; this helps the fresh coat cling to the surface and last longer.

Camping is a fun and affordable way for families to spend time together outdoors, unplugged and away from distractions. More importantly, it’s a great way to create lifelong memories. Here are five activities to keep your family entertained while camping out this summer.

1. Campfire Cookout

Add a twist to traditional camp food to make them more exciting, like topping regular s’mores with granola, crispy rice, or nuts. For meals, make your own version of campfire calzone by filling a couple of slices of bread with mozzarella and pepperoni.

Remember to bring travel-friendly fruits and greens that you can quickly whip up for snacks, like apples or celery sticks with peanut butter. Add raisins or banana for an extra boost of energy for activities and games.

2. Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger hunts are fun, easy to organize, and a great tactile learning experience for the kids. If you want to change it up a bit, print out BINGO cards with images of campsite items that they need to look for. Do this in groups while hiking or trekking. Reward the winner with an extra campfire treat!

3. Team Olympics

Teach kids the value of teamwork by organizing a mini-Olympics. Relay, long jump, and tug of war are classic games that everyone loves. If you’re camping by a lake, a swimming competition will get the bigger kids excited.

4. Nature Arts and Crafts

Using your arts-and-crafts kit, ask the kids to add color to ordinary objects like rocks, dried leaves, and twigs. Stimulate creativity with a bit of friendly competition and have a vote-off on who wins. Make sure to have prizes and goodies prepared for the winners.

5. Nature Walkthrough

Camping is also a wonderful opportunity to create a low-key outdoor classroom. Take the kids on a nature walk. Use a guidebook and let them interact with wildlife to enrich their learning. And if there’s time, let them create a nature journal for collecting, writing, and drawing about their experiences.

There are a lot of fun and exciting things you can do with the kids this summer. Get a quick start with the help of these ideas. Happy camping!
