Camp Mom Week One was a hit and the second week was every bit as fun!
Camp Mom Day Six: Teddy Bear Beach Party Jello Cups
This fun dessert was easy, adorable and delicious. The kids were involved in the assembly and happily devoured them when they were ready!
I shared the full post HERE, but this is the list of items needed:
- Clear disposable cups
- 3 boxes blue jello (makes 10 cups)
- 8 graham crackers, crushed
- Gummy Peach Rings
- Teddy Grahams
Camp Mom Day Seven: Strawberry Picking
We had so much fun going strawberry picking with our friends! It's an annual event for us. I love looking back at the pictures from previous years and seeing how much our kids grew! (Stay tuned for the full post in a few days!)
If you've never gone strawberry picking, I highly recommend taking your kids. It's so much fun!
Camp Mom Day Eight: Shaving Cream Twister
This quickly became the most favorite Camp Mom activity! We saved this activity for the day when I have 3 extra kids at my house. It was a stormy day, but we managed to fit this game in between storms. An added bonus? I hosed off the kids when we were done and baths were done for the night. BOOM!
- 3 cans shaving cream
- Food coloring
- 4 bowls and 4 serving spoons
- Empty shaving cream evenly into 4 separate bowls, add a few drops of food coloring to each bowl (use red, blue, yellow and green) and mix with spoons.
- Set up Twister board outdoors.
- Scoop a heaping spoonful of shaving cream onto each color-coordinated circle on the Twister board.
- Play according to the rules!
It's the same game...just messier!
Give the toddlers the chance to try it, too!
Thank goodness I could hose them off!
Camp Mom Day Nine: Sticky Paper Murals
This activity is SO easy! All you need is contact paper, painter's tape and pretty much anything you can think of to stick to it. We opted for foam shapes!
Just stretch out some contact paper along the length of a wall, tape the edges and let the kids make a mural. If you stick it to a window and use plastic tiles, the sun shines through!
The setup is minimal, so the kids like to do this often. Lily was the only one who did this activity last week, but yesterday, the big girls and Liam got to enjoy it, too!
Camp Mom Day Ten: Straw Eiffel Towers
This was a craft that the girls really wanted to do, but it was a bit too in-depth for my liking! There was a lot of measuring, cutting and handing out involved and Lily required a lot of assistance. The girls were happy with the end result, though!
- Construction Paper
- Plastic Drinking Straws
I can't really give directions here. We just followed a picture and the girls did their best! (Here's the pin we used.)
And when they were done, there was a huge mess to clean up and hours spent waiting for glue to dry!
We stayed so busy this week. Between Camp Mom, Storytime, errands and outings, there was no time to do anything else!
Liam, however, was not impressed. When all else fails, just find a lone mud puddle and jump in! Obviously our week was not messy enough!
My kids are loving Camp Mom and eagerly ask every single day what I have planned. We have so many weeks of fun ahead of us!
Coming up this week:
- Ocean Water
- A special outing
- Water Balloon Pinatas
- Squirt Gun Painting
