83) Summer Camp Week 3: Summer Classics

Lately we have been all about popsicles. Sitting on the front steps after dinner almost every night eating popsicles. Being sticky, sweaty and hot while watching the haze of the day start to fade away. It all seems so classically summer. I can remember doing the same thing when I was a kid and often wonder about all the kids who have ever lived in our very old house and done the same thing too. It makes me think of all the summer classics, that are just so fun and so perfect for summer they never seem to go out of style. So this week's summer camp is dedicated to the classics. The ones you did as a kid, that your kids will do and hopefully their kids after them.

Monday: Rec Hall
The Form a Square Game is one of those classic keep'em busy games great for restaurants, waiting or just a rainy afternoon. Even little ones pick this game up pretty quickly and older kids love to figure out the strategy behind the game.

Tuesday: Back in the Bunks
A new twist on an old summer favorite, Kool Aid Play Dough is fun to play with and smells delicious!

Wednesday: Mess Hall
Everybody loves a cup of lemonade on a hot summer day.  Both big and little kids can Make Lemonade with just a few ingredients, maybe even set up a lemonade stand.

Thursday: Arts and Crafts
Tie-Dye T-Shirts was one of my most favorite summer activities when I was a kid. So many options on how to tie-dye that it is easy to find a style and method perfect for any age.

Friday: Outward Bound
I have met very few kids who don't like to Make Mud Pies. Easy, inexpensive, messy but loads of fun.
