A camp for boys and girls between the ages of 7 to 16. Kids enjoy all kinds of super fun activities like kayaking, rock climbing, wakeboarding, backpacking, horseback riding, biking, arts and crafts and so much more.
Super fun creativity game! No supplies needed. Also good for car rides, rainy days, hikes...
The starting player says something innocuous, like "I almost couldn't find the syrup." Next player says something like "It could've been worse. You could have been covered in syrup." Then the next person says something worse, like, "It could've been even worse than that, you could've been on Dancing with the Stars at the time." And then the next player tries to find something worse than that. Or, the next person says "it could be better..." And so it goes...
I always loved these tissue paper crafts as a kid. Easy to do with simple supplies, but looks great! Something fun to do over the weekend!
Natural-colored raffia paper
Yellow poster board or construction paper
Colored tissue paper
To make each stalk, cut three 18-inch lengths of natural-colored paper twist (sometimes called raffia paper). Untwist them, then trim the edges to resemble corn husks.
Fan out the husks so that they overlap and use a few drops of glue to hold them together.
From yellow poster board, cut out an ear of corn (about 10 inches long and 3 inches wide) and glue it atop the husks.
Now crumple a bunch of 3-inch colored tissue paper squares to create rounded kernels and glue them to the ear. Lastly, gather the husk bottoms and tie them together with a strip of raffia.
Here's a simple little camp or party game:
Everyone closes their eyes and lowers their heads, everyone chants 1-2-3-Look! As the leader calls "look," the campers look up at one specific person. If that person is looking back at him/her, both players are out. If that person is looking at a different person, the camper puts their head back down and waits for the next chant of "1-2-3 Look."
Continue the game rapidly until only two players are left.
We like to play a similar version that avoids players being called out of the games. Simply form TWO circles. When a pair is "out", they join the other circle. Remarkable easy and fun!
A fun simple art activity with supplies you may already have around the house:
tempra paints and brush
1. With the help of an adult, cut a potato in half, with a pencil, draw a simple geometric shape, letter, or any created design on the sliced portion of the potato.
2. With the spoon, scrape away the part of the potato that is not part of the shape. The shape will be raised; the background will be cut and scraped away.
3. Paint any color on the remaining raised shape. Then, firmly press the potato on the paper to make a print. Make several prints before repainting. Each print will be lighter than the first.
4. Shading Step: With the spoon or other digging utensil, scoop away a little more of the remaining shape. Paint a different color on the potato shape and press the potato on the prints already made. Try to print exactly on the area of the first print. This will produce the look of dual colored shading. Continue this method to make more shaded prints or additional prints.
Explore making prints with other objects from around the house, such as these suggestions:
bar of soap
nuts and bolts
eraser on a pencil
