Summer is almost here, and for many of us, that means more time by the pool or in the yard. So if you’re looking for a fun way to make your favorite poolside drink fancier or a new game to burn off some energy, here are our favorite DIY crafts and recipes of the week.

Pirouline fans are going green and ditching traditional plastic straws for a much tastier alternative, hollowed-out Pirouline wafers. This adorable twist on the classic straw only requires your favorite wafers, a reusable straw, and your go-to summer drink. 

Now it’s time to get crafty with something we all have in our trash bins right now. This rainbow toilet paper roll windsock from “Fabulessly Frugal” is adorable and easy to create, which makes it perfect for kids. Once finished, it’s the ideal item to hang up outside and watch in the wind.

If your kids are looking to catch up on their Summer reading, this next craft is truly magical. “Creative Family Fun” shares their step-by-step instructions for some dazzling Magic Wand Reading Pointers. Your new readers will love making their own magic wands that are perfect for keeping their place while reading.

How about a little brain teaser? Escape Rooms have become a popular activity for kids over the years, but just because we’re stuck at home doesn’t mean the mystery has to come to an end. We love this DIY escape room from “The Activity Mom.” You’ll need a few supplies including a lock, a puzzle, some clues, and plenty of imagination.

After all that investigating, we have the perfect recipe to recharge those young minds. Our homemade Cookie Butter Rice Krispie Treats will definitely score some points. It’s as easy as pressing the Rice Krispie mixture into a pan, covering that with chocolate, and then layering Pirouline wafers on top. With just six ingredients, it will take you less than an hour.
