A few days ago my daughter said, wistfully, "Remember last summer when we did a craft project every day?". My first thought was, wooo hoo! I made an actual memory for my kid! and it was a good one. Parenting win! My second thought was, dammit, how am I going to do that again? Then I got an email from Beth (of Sew Mama Sew fame) telling me about an online summer crafts camp called the Summer Camp Adventure Club. Problem solved.
What is the Summer Camp Adventure Club? I'll let Beth describe it:
Summer Camp Adventure Club is a subscription-based, online “camp” (an eCourse/online class) where Pre-K through 3-4 grade campers get fun, new ideas every day throughout the summer. There’s a new theme every week in June, July and August. Each weekly theme includes tons of inspiring projects, activities, journal prompts, downloads, recipes and more. Kids get the inspiration and guidance they need to work more independently to create projects they love.
Full disclosure: I was given a free month of club membership in exchange for spreading the word, but honestly I'm going to purchase subscriptions for July and August. I could be my normal cheapskate self and do it all myself (with the help of my pinterest boards), but with three little kids running and screaming around the house day in and day out, I don't always have the brain power to think up, organize, and get a project going for the kids. Summer Camp Adventure Club to the rescue! Come on, join the club!
