Girl’s Camp Crafts

We are headed to girl’s camp this week–It’s a church event where we take the girls in our ward from 12-18 to a camp. It’s a great time to connect, develop friendships, and CRAFT! So I wanted to show you some fun things to do for girl’s crafts when you are at a camp!

First up: our personal favorite

Friendship Bracelets!

We just throw out all the embroidery floss and the girls just make and make and make. It never gets put away! We even do “thread dreads” where we wrap the embroidery floss around a little piece of hair.

Sun Prints

Grab some sun print paper (amazon has tons) and have the girls pick what they want to lay out on the paper. Once the paper is exposed–they will have to work fast-so get everything ready. Flowers, leaves, heart shaped rocks, sticks to spell stuff–lots of fun stuff from around your campground that you can use. HERE is a great how to!

Watercolor prints

This watercolor hack by it’s always autumn are so cool! The girls will have a blast –and you don’t really need to be super artistic to pull it off! If you are really creative–you could create some prints that go along with your theme! We are also doing some fun thank you cards and bookmarks!

Dream catchers

Diy some boho dream catchers. I loved this set up that catch my party has put out.

Shrinky Dink flair

If you follow me on instagram–You know how much I love shrinking stuff! IT would be so fun to make some cute pins using shrink film! Follow along with Persia Lou’s tutorial! You can even use these printables I have provided as templates. (you would need a plug in for the heat gun to shrink!)

Embroidery Hoop

Embroidery can be overwhelming–but how fun would it be to have a bunch of cute hoops all prepped with vinyl–and the girls can just embellish it with embroidery thread. These cute hoops are from Sugar Bee Crafts

Air Dry pots

The Girls would have a blast making these cute pots–And using air dry clay means you can just leave them out to dry and then come back later to paint them!

Bookmarks

This is a two parter–decorate or design up a cute bookmark–(could go along with theme) and then make an adorable tassel or yarn pom pom to add to the top!

Wood Slice Pictures

This tutorial has lots of fun different ways to put pictures on a wood slice! And since wood slices are from nature–it seems like a perfect fit!

arrow

These adorable arrows from 30 handmade days are so cute! Once again–you can customize it your own theme…the girl can choose their own scrapbook paper and they can even have hooks to use as a jewelry hanger!

Tie Dye

Tie Dye can get messy-plus they need to be ran through a washer after it sits–but it would be fun to have all the girls make shirts to wear. A great project for the activity before camp!
