Camp Sunshine Week 9


This is it, you guys, the last week of our amazingly fun summer camp! We hope you've loved it and made lots of fun memories with your families! We have spent way more time at home this summer than we thought we ever would, but I'm thankful for the time to slow down, and play and create together. It has been a summer we will never forget! School starts here on August 10th, so we are days away from the structure and routine it will bring, not to mention all the uncertainty and stress that comes with the ongoing pandemic. So before it's back to schedules and homework, here are five more fun activities to get us set for school!


STRESS/FIDGET BALL

Sitting in class or in front of the computer all day can be boooring. We'll make a fun little fidget ball to help you pay attention in class!

INVISIBLE INK

Your teacher will never know you're passing notes in class when you write them with invisible ink! This fun science experiment is safe for all ages because it is heat free and uses items you probably already have in your kitchen!

ABC PRETZELS

Let's bake and practice our letters at the same time! These pretzels are sooo good and super simple to whip up.

PENCILS IN A BAG EXPERIMENT

Let's test out our new school supplies in this fun experiment that involves fancy scientific polymer chains but is simple enough for anyone to score an A+!

SOAP GUMMIES

I don't know about you, but we tend to let our bathtime schedule slide a bit during the summer. Pool time counts as a bath, right?! It's time to get squeaky clean before you put on those brand new school clothes! We will make some fun little soap jellies that will take your back to school bath to the next level!

🔲water beads (Have you got yours yet? They are so fun!)
