If you’re looking for something fun to do with your family before summer slips completely away, you should check out Make magazine’s Summer MAKEcation projects. WIth themes like Teach your family to solder, Hack your cooler, and even a Build a Backyard Trebuchet Family Challenge, these summer projects sound like a good way to spend some quality time with the kids while teaching them valuable skills. Follow some simple guidelines, get creative with the challenges, and document the experience and you could win $100 gift certificates at the Maker Shed and other prizes. Just submit photos and videos to the Make flickr pool and tag them “MAKEcation”. There are even expert “camp counselors” available online to help with ideas and questions.
