Time for summer camp!

Summer is a great time to craft with your kids. They’ve got the energy, interest, and time. Here are a few ideas for adding a creative and homemade touch to camp this year. Decorate with beads, tape and thread, and you’ll have as much fun as your kids!

Materials needed:

  • Kreinik Large Bag O'Bits
  • 1-inch roll Red-liner Treasure Tape
  • tube of Diamond Beadlets

Gear up before camp

Before they go to camp, the kids can decorate and personalize their basic gear (alarm clocks, hairbrushes, backpacks even lip gloss and small tin containers). Decorate these items with red-liner double-sided tape, threads and beads — everyone will know who owns the colorful gear. Have your child pick a favorite color thread (like purple), and decorate all of their camp stuff with that thread.

Make a “Care Package” for your child

Get a cool organizer and fill it with a variety of projects, from bunk activities to birthday party crafts (for those away during their birthdays) to stationery kits.

Organizer idea: Embellished Tote Bag (orange bag pictured above)

Embellish a plain tote bag from a discount store. Lay pieces of the double-sided Treasure Tape on the bag, remove the red liner to expose the sticky area, then cover with a sheet of your child’s own artwork (or your artwork) the same size or smaller. Then lay more strips of Treasure Tape on top. Remove the red liner to expose the sticky part, and embellish with threads, buttons, and beads. Write your child’s name, or “Art Camp” or another message with a paint pen.

Memory crafts after camp

With all the pictures taken at camp, build a fun project for your child around the whole theme of “Memories.”  Buy an unfinished wooden frame at a discount or craft store, then embellish it using the same technique: cover with Treasure Tape, then decorate with beads, flowers, threads, buttons and more. Your child may want to make a frame for each friend or counselor from camp. What a special gift!
