Camp Sunshine Week 1
Updated: May 27, 2020
I'm so excited to present the first week of our online summer camp! During Week 1, we're going to channel our inner Mad Scientist! We'll use science, art, and cooking to discover how different liquids and compounds mix, react, and change. Here's a breakdown of our activities for the week.
1. MAGIC MILK & MARBLED PAPER
In this easy experiment, we'll mix a few basic kitchen items to see how they react. Then, we'll make some pretty marbled paper that you can display or reuse for other craft projects!
2. GALAXY GOO
Make a beautiful squishy dough that looks like the starry night sky! (Or take it up a notch and make Galaxy Slime! ***If you choose the slime instead, please see the note at the bottom of the shopping list for alternate ingredients needed.)
3. SHAKE IT UP SLUSHIES
Who needs a fancy snow cone machine when you can make it in a bag at home yourself! It only takes five minutes and a little muscle.
4. EASY PEASY BATH BOMBS
Basic kitchen ingredients mix to form a fun powder you can mold into shapes. But that's not all--watch what happens when you drop them in your bathtub!
5. LAVA LAMPS
A recycled bottle, a couple liquids and one magic tablet lead to something mesmerizing!
🔲 dish soap (Dawn is recommended but any kind should work)
🔲 4 pack of food coloring
🔲 watercolor paper or cardstock
🔲 cooking oil
🔲 confetti stars/glitter (all optional but will make your goo really pretty)
🔲 kool aid packets or bottle of your favorite juice
🔲 ziploc bags (one sandwich size and one quart size per child)
🔲 baking soda
🔲 epsom salt or cane sugar
🔲 empty clear plastic water bottle or clear glass jar (one per child)
Optional Ingredient: essential oil or baking extract (if you want to make your bath bombs scented. If you don't have anything on hand, no need to buy anything!)
***If you choose galaxy slime, you will need a 5 oz bottle of clear glue and a bottle of slime activator instead of flour and cream of tartar. Everything else stays the same.
