Camp Crafts

As you are reading this, I am braving the wild as a youth camp counselor.  I don't know what scares me more, sleeping in a tent or being responsible for a group of girls.  I am working with an amazing group of women, though, so it should be fine....However, my idea of camping includes a hotel and jetted tub.  I guess I'll have to rough it.

One of my assignments was to be in charge of several camp crafts.  
This is what I came up with:

Boondoggle key chain with a dog tag engraved with our Camp Theme.  
You can learn how to make boondoggles here.

I thought these pop top bracelets were darling.  Ladybug and I had fun "practicing".  You can see some tutorials here.  I want to make more.  They are just fun!  I wore mine to work one day and got so many compliments?  Really?  Pop tops?  There are some great videos on YouTube.  I found this one helpful.

Even if you aren't a camp counselor, these are fun summer crafts that you may want to try on one of those long, hot days of summer.  Definitely a summer boredom buster!

  1. Cool crafts! I would have never guessed that those were pop tops?! Cute, cute!

  2. I love the pop top bracelets. They look really cool! I'm not a huge fan of girls' camp as an adult. I loved it as a youth though!

  3. Good for you! I like my kids alright, but a week with someone else's kids? I guess teens are cool. :) I have seen those soda tab bracelets. Super cute!!

  4. I can't help thinking of Napoleon Dynamite. How fun. Wish I were there, just in a nice bed though.

  5. I have YET to have the experience of girl's summer camp. I'm sure my time is coming though. Hope you had fun!
