Broken Sidewalk Chalk (recycling and open play) – Don’t throw away your pieces of sidewalk chalk when they are too small to use.  Crush them in a plastic bag, add them to a plastic cup and add water to make a paste.  Using a paintbrush continue your sidewalk or driveway drawings without any waste!

Lava Lamp (science) – Use an empty 2L bottle, oil, water, food coloring and seltzer tablets, make your own lava lamp.

Flower Arrangement (craft for mom) – Using two vases, flowers and colorful items like bubblegum or Fruit Loops, make a floral arrangement for mom to take home from camp.
