Summer Craft Camp for Kids!
Since my daughter is getting older and loves crafts I decided to host a craft camp for her this summer. We picked 4 crafts using a variety of skills and materials. A 4th of July shirt that will involve a little sewing, a monogram necklace using shrink art, a decorated journal using paper and Mod Podge, and a wood doll bed using simple tools.
The last one will require the most prep work but Ana White has made it a little more simple. She created a “home depot” style craft kit for an American Girl Bed. She even adapted it so each individual bed can be bunked. I just need to cut all the pieces and assemble some of it ahead of time. I’ve allowed 2 Friday’s for this craft. If they finish it in one I’m planning to have them sew a simple blanket or mattress for the bed. Check back for a tutorial each week! I’ll link them as we complete each project.
