Girls Camp Craft Ideas

Last year I had the pleasure to volunteer at a week-long girl's camp that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints hosts each year. I was in charge of crafts and surprise, surprise I was given that task again this year! I am actually thrilled because there is nothing I like better than getting people excited about crafting. Last year we made felt rolled flowers, accordion scrapbooks and spiky origami balls. The girls had a blast, so I'm on the hunt to find even better projects this year.

On my hunt, I've stumbled upon these ideas:

Just imagine how many different designs the girls will come up with! I am thinking of bringing a few cardboard templates cut into shapes like stars, hearts, circles but I will also take cardboard pieces they can make into their own templates.

Decorate the canvas cover with Pellon backed fabric. Back several different lengths of fabric in Pellon before camp and then the girls can cut whatever they want out of the fabric to decorate the front of the notebooks. Bring an iron to steam them into place at camp.

I always wanted one of these as a kid! With the fantastic selection of colored and patterned duct table I think the girls would have a crazy good time creating their own, personalized wallet.

Last year several of the camps made these tutus and all of our girls wanted one. Banking on the simplicity of creation,this craft could be added into any spare hour you may have between certifications.

Whether you use paper, fabric or napkins, these mod podged coasters are always a hit. I find my tiles at yard sales. Lots of people have extras leftover from home projects...I once scored over 50 for $2.

 I'm still narrowing these down...I only have a few days with a couple of designated crafty hours after all! Which are your favorites??
