Posts tagged ‘fun BBQ activities for kids’

UltimateMama loves entertaining by throwing small BBQs all summer long!  Food is important of course but so are myriad activities such as swimming in the pool, badminton, foosball, and ping pong.  However, UltimateMama knows that some kids like to “take a break” after all the excitement so she always sets up a fun outdoor craft station complete with materials to make friendship bracelets, shell napkin rings, and necklaces.  UltimateMama’s crowd pleasing craft station often includes the following:

– beads in all shapes and colors (some fun jingle bell beads too as well as alphabet beads)

– strings in various colors and lengths (elastic too)

– friendship bracelet kit (find many brands on

– small shells (UltimateMama finds them with little holes which make them ideal for beading projects)

– special charms to add a “wow” factor to the jewelry (teddy bears, emojis, hearts, puppies, kitty cats, sandals, balls, ballet slippers)

And, make sure you put pretty hydrangeas in a vase in the middle of the table to make it more inviting!
