Are you ready for the easiest kids craft idea ever? FINGER PUPPETS!  All it takes is some scissors, construction paper, glue, markers, and possibly googly eyes– and then you’ll have hours of play.  In fact, we took advantage of this wonderful weather and placed all those craft supplies out on our deck and let the kids go nuts.  Then daddy joined it, and that’s when things got really fun– they made minions.
