Camp Sunshine Week 5

Updated: Jun 27, 2020

It's almost the Fourth of July, so let's get to celebrating! These projects will have you playing in red, white, and blue!


This project makes me start humming the National Anthem! We will send our rockets into the air using some ingredients you probably already have at home. Let the countdown begin!


We will make some pretty decorative pinwheels to get us in the 4th of July spirit!

SOLAR OVEN & S'MORES CONES Nothing says summer like a campfire and s'mores! We may not be playing with fire, but in this project, we will create our own solar powered oven and bake some yummy s'mores cones inside!


You can't have the 4th of July without fireworks! Using some basic kitchen ingredients, we will complete two different science experiments to mimic the beauty of fireworks without the explosion!


These little shooters are so much fun! We will end the week with a confetti explosion that will have us ready for the 4th of July!
