The Great Soda Bottle Safari. Before (or after) you visit the zoo, make some animals using empty liter pop bottles! A great recycling craft! Here's what we will be doing in Arts & Crafts this next week at Camp Doublecreek!
Option Calming Wave Machine sensory bottle (oil, water and fun things) Option water, glue, glitter, food coloring. Option toothpicks/skewers and uncooked grain (rice or barley) for a rain maker. Worked well but Toddler wasn't interested.
Bottle Bank via Martha Stewart: transform a used plastic bottle into a cute piggy bank. Could use same idea to made little containers for kids to store their collections too (use bottle with wider opening and don't make slot)
Ice painting is a fun way to cool off during the hot summer months. This website even has a substitution for children under the age of two who will want to put the ice paint in their mouths: kool-aid ice.
