Hi From Summer Camp.

· ·

Remember those summer camp days: from nature walks and epic games of tag to freezing dips in the pool/pond/lake/river (whatever body of water - it was always frigid!).  As we sit at our desks, we wish we could travel back to the campfire and swap a few ghost stories while munching on s’mores.  But, until teleportation is possible, we’ll settle for bringing camp back into our lives the easiest way possible: arts & craft time.

  1. We’re obsessed with this very mature and elegant reimagining of the friendship bracelet (though our old eyes might need more obvious markers to tell the strings apart!).

  2. Serious flashbacks thanks to this macrame wizard: definitely feeling like we never gave the craft the proper attention or credit.

  3. Scout’s honor: we’re thinking we need to bring back the sit-upon from our scouting days (when you think about it, they’re kinda crazy useful for picnics and the beach).

  4. Remember learning to embroider (or was it just us that signed up for the historically inclined activities)? These kits are making us think it’s time to revisit the fun.

  5. Kids these days: the National Quilt Museum has quilt camps for kids! Turning green from jealousy right now (but to be totally honest, we fully support this and think it is an amazing opportunity and idea!).
