Girls' Camp {June 15} Monday Made It

The first three are from my week as camp director for my church's Girls' Camp. They had a fun filled week of different activities and learning about the outdoors. They went on a hike, did a service project by planting flowers at a senior living community, spent time canoeing, making a couple of crafts, learning archery, wilderness survival, preparing meals, and being spiritually uplifted. It was great, but I am glad that it is over for this year. :)

We made headbands from old t-shirts. This yellow one is an example I made. 
Cut 2 straps that go around your head.
 Cross them and match the ended. 
Hot glue the 4 ends together.
I added a bow and used a small tab of fabric to give it more a finished look.

This girl made her own by cutting three long strips, pulling on them to stretch them out and then braided them. She ended up hot glueing the ends to make sure it stayed secure.
The girls were way more creative than me, but I didn't get pictures of them all.

I forgot to get a picture of a final product and one of the girl's instead of my toddler's.
You use canvas and draw a design with sharpies.
Then take rubbing alcohol and a paintbrush and lightly brush.
It smears the sharpie and looks pretty cool.
My toddler liked the painting with the alcohol a little much, so hers didn't come out very bright. You can see the corner of another girl's in the bottom right of the picture.

We made tin foil dinners one night. We were hungry and I didn't get a finished picture of this either.
What we used:
hamburger patties
sliced potatoes
a dab of beef gravy
salt & pepper

It was yummy!
We had salad and s'mores to go with it.

I am going to be out on maternity leave for the 1st quarter. I was able to make an example of what I want my kiddos to work on during their social studies rotation with me. 
I'm using a combo of two TPT products. 

We won't study all the cultures the lapbook lists. There is an editable form, but it won't hurt for the students to know that they are there.  I starred the ones we will study on the front.

My students will use the information from the Native American Unit to fill out the info tabs in lapbook pockets.  The table is the answer key of what information each pocket should contain.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Tin foil dinners bring back many memories of Girl's Camp! Looks like fun!

  3. The headbands look awesome! I might steal that idea for my own summer camp kids in July if my camp director will let me teach the session. Thanks for sharing--have a great week!
