Ah, the summer holidays… six weeks of wholesome days out, frolicking in the sun and ice cream on tap. Or, if you live anywhere in the UK, light drizzle, bored kids and CBBC overload.

Step in, the arts and crafts supplies: saviour of many a rainy day and guaranteed to keep your little'uns out of trouble for at least seven minutes. The summer holidays are the perfect time to hone your arsenal of arty activities - and we'd love to see what you’re up to.

Whether you're fashioning seasonal bunting, getting down and dirty with finger painting or desperately trying to stop your kids from turning themselves into papier mâché statues, do share your endeavours - no judgement for the less-than-Pinterest-perfect here.

If you’re stuck for ideas and your DC are climbing the walls, it’s a great place to browse for inspiration, too. We’ll be gathering some of our favourite posts into a summer round-up towards the end of the holidays, so do keep your eyes peeled for that, and get plugging your posts! It’ll be September before you know it.
