How to make summer paper crafts

What you need:

  • Summer paper craft template
  • Multi-colored construction paper
  • Glue
  • Drag

Step-by-step instructions

Making this summer paper craft will only take 30-40 minutes. Once you cut everything out, you’ll quickly make an umbrella and sun.

Start by folding a white piece of paper in half.

Cut waves from pieces of blue paper. You’ll want waves of different colors.

Start layering and gluing the waves onto the white piece of paper.

You can paint it light blue and then dark blue to create an interesting color contrast.

Create a sandy effect using a piece of yellow/brown construction paper on the bottom.

You’ll also want to stay out of the sun!

If you cut out some circles, you can give the sun a 3-D effect.

Apply solar glue, as shown in the picture below.

Cut a long piece of stem to make an umbrella.

Cut out the umbrella in the color of your choice and glue it to the paper.

Continue gluing down the first layer of the umbrella.

Take another color and stick it down as shown.

This gives the umbrella a very interesting 3-D effect.
