It’s June! If not already, school for most will soon be out, & summer will officially begin within a matter of weeks! Unbelievable right? Well, I have some great ideas to help keep the kiddies busy. Enjoy! 😊

 

 

Scavenger Hunt

“I spy with my little eye”… there’s nothing like a good game of clue, or a scavenger hunt. Kids love the chance to look for various treasures & prizes with a few fun clues to lead them.  It’s an amazing way to create a fun activity for all to participate in, & can be used to create healthy competition between campers.

 

 

Rope Swings

This is an oldie, but a goodie form of fun. Rope swings have been around forever, but I assure you, the fun remains the same! Usually, you can also increase or decrease, this ultra-thrilling experience to fit your liking, by using different platform heights to swing high over bodies of water ending in a safe yet thrilling splash!

 

 

Mega Slip-N-Slide

Slip n Slide

A mega slip n slide isn’t like any other slip n slide you’ve seen before. You can transform any hill or steady slope from ordinary to extraordinary, by adding tarps and other slick materials. (within safety measures) This slip n slide can be as long and as wide as desired which ensures maximum fun for campers.

 

 

Extreme Zipline

Zip Lining

Now, this is for the brave! Extreme caution goes without saying with this sport, but if done safely…is nothing short of a blast!  Thrill seekers travel all over the world to take part in zip lining experiences. Zip lines are a great way to see the campground’s surroundings. This is a surefire way to get campers involved and ready for an exciting ride. 🙂

 

 

Horseback Riding

I’ve always been a great fan of horses growing up myself, so this would be an amazing adventure for most kids.  Horseback riding is a great way to experience the outdoors & ones own surroundings. Interacting with animals in a hands on way makes horseback riding a unique way to experience nature.

 

Awesome huh? Now go & get the kiddies signed up! Enjoy your weekend, “Toodles!”😀

Article Source: bhg.com/Photo: decotendency.com

Hey, happy Friday.  How’s your week been? Wow, I cannot believe it’s already time for Easter! For those of you who still like to get creative this time of year with Easter egg hunts & the whole nine yards….no problemo, I got you covered.  There are some awesome decorative tips that I am just “dyeing” to share with you…so let’s get to it! 🙂

 

Flower Garden Easter Eggs

You can easily mimic springtime flowers with this lovely, decorative tabletop garden. Use leftover 3-D scrapbooking stickers to decorate your Easter eggs, then display in beautiful egg cups. Easy-breezy…just peel and stick!

 

Gorgeous Glitter Eggs

Aren’t you bedazzled? A bit of glue and colorful glitter are all you need to create these stunning Easter eggs. You can look for glitter in a variety of sizes and colors. Sequins can also add a pop of color and texture to these sparkly jewels for that extra wow factor.

 

Paper Blossom Eggs

Easter eggs

Too cute! To create these crafty flowers, cut origami paper into a range of different-size squares. Fold the squares and freehand-cut flower patterns of your choice. Using a small paintbrush, apply white glue to the backs of the flowers and adhere to eggs, pressing out excess glue or air bubbles. Cut thin strips of paper to make stems and leaves.

 

Yellow Washi Tape Tulip Easter Eggs

Isn’t this creative? Yep, no mess or dyes are needed to hatch these clever, floral-inspired eggs. To create the tulip-petal pattern, tear small pieces of yellow washi tape and cover Easter eggs. For the best effect, vary the placement of the tape. Complete the blooms by placing the eggs in cupcake liners with a grass-like print, and for added flair…atop ceramic egg cups or candlestick holders.

I do hope you have enjoyed the tips & will be able to utilize some of them.  Until next time, “Toodles!” 😀
