Camp Mom 2012

Camp Mom is in session starting this week!! For those of you who are newer to our blog, you can read all about Camp Mom here. This is our third year hosting Camp Mom and I love it!

My goals for Camp Mom this year are to...
1) use materials we already have around the house for crafts and activities (so we save some $$)
2) focus on a new theme each week
3) embed language building and learning into each activity
4) have fun together!

Last year was a blast! Our themes included Car Fun, Little Chef Camp, Dinos and Volcanoes, Oceans, Fireworks and skyscrapers, and Down by the banks pond activities! Each week we plan to share some activities, crafts, and snacks related to the theme. Each session will also feature a children's book (or two or three) that we plan to read during the week.

Our first session's theme is going to be Classic Camp Crafts to get us started! We'll be sharing some simple classic camp crafts on the blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest a few of the days this week. 

Here's the schedule for the rest of the weeks if you want to join in:

Week of July 16th- Bugs!

Week of July 30th-
