MAKEcation “summer camp” project roundup

Summer camp projects aren’t all painted rocks and macaroni portraits! I loved making woven plastic lanyards, friendship bracelets, fire-baked apples, and tie-dyed everything. In the spirit of bringing the joy of summer camp to your browser, I’m pleased to bring you a blast-from-the-past roundup of crafty projects, perfect for any MAKEcation.

  1. The life size board game is a great idea! I feel driven to find a piece of foam we can use as a life size die as well.

    Thanks!
