Crafting for Camp

I’ve been crafting a lot this past week to make samples for a one-week camp I’m hoping to do at school this summer. The camp is all about exploring and creating, with a nature theme. I’m developing it with a few other teachers for rising K – 5th graders, but whether or not it actually happens depends on enrollment. Hopefully we can entice enough kids to sign up. Here are a few of our ideas…

After a trip to First Landing State Park, we’ll create “nature bugs” like these:naturebugs

Along with bowls made out of sand:sand2

Along with pom-pom flowers like these made of yarn:yarnpom1 yarnpom2

After a trip to the Hermitage and Chrysler Museum, we’ll create beaded insects like this spider:beadedspider We’ll also spend a day at the zoo, followed by animal-themed crafting. I really hope we get to host the camp this summer! If not, we’ll just aim for summer 2016 instead.

    Here is your first order for pistachio flowres. These crafts are terrific! Perhaps adults would enjoy doing them as well as children. Why don’t you write a craft book!

    Sorry about the misspelled flowers – haste makes waste!
