Hi Kathy Martin here with my very first post for write. click. scrapbook! It didn't take me long to think of a subject for our Summer Dailies since summertime in the Martin house means day camps for Christopher. Do your children go to camp? Where we live in Raleigh, North Carolina, there are a lot of great camps to choose from with activities that make me want to give up this crafting business so I can attend camp too! Christopher gets to go on hikes, fishing, canoeing, and horseback riding. There's also arts and crafts where he made a tie dyed t-shirt and an alligator out of a clothespin, pictured on my page below. And that's just the tip of the iceberg!
With all these awesome camp adventures, there's a lot of material for scrapbooking! Often times it's hard to get photos of your child at camp since they don't let us moms participate, but don't let that stop you from preserving those summer camp memories. You can take photos of their camp crafts for your pages.
This is a toothpick and tissue paper campfire Christopher made.
What? There isn't a camp in your area? Camp was full? One year Christopher went to "Camp Mom" because our favorite camps were full and I didn't want him sitting in front of the TV and computer all day. One of our Camp Mom activities included a trip to the nursery for some flowers and lavendar bushes. Here is the page I created of our gardening day including the little plastic plant markers that came with our plants.
Don't forget to include the pages about your big kids, too! Monika made this page about her son's camp adventure as a volunteer.
I hope I've been able to give you some ideas for scrapbooking your childs summer camp memories. Now I want to schedule another Camp Mom!
