BAM Camp- Ocean

Week before last, we had Ocean week. It rained almost everyday, so last Monday (the only day I had them last week) we did the outdoor activities we couldn't do during ocean week.

We made Hawaiian leis on Monday.

I used my Cricut to make the flowers. I cut up straw into about 1 inch pieces. The kids each got string and made a pattern. Flower, straw, flower, straw.

Bo's box had water, sea shells, blue water beads, boats, and a Coral Reef Toob.

Amelia's had water, blue half marbles, ocean animals and a mermaid.

Tuesday we played again, but it rained so we couldn't do our water blob.

Wednesday we did them again and it was our tent day.

We watched Shark Tale.

Thursday we once again had rain.

They did their bags.

After that they did their boxes.

Monday we went geocaching. Bo got a bracelet and Amelia got an airplane.

Then we came home and did the water blob.

I ironed the edges of a plastic drop cloth together leaving a hole for the hose. Use parchment paper between the iron and the plastic.

Here's our video.

BAM Camp- America

I'm sorry the blog is late. I've had a lot going on with VBS and school lately. Two weeks ago was America week. 

We made tin can firework poppers. 

Take a tin can and a metal lid. Nail a hole in the top middle of both. Put some twine through the holes and tie it short enough that the lid doesn't come out of the can. Paint to your liking. 

For Bo's box I used dollar store table confetti, pipe cleaners, and a Presidents Toob. 

We had some good questions about the presidents.

In Amelia's I used shredded paper and hid red, white, and blue toys in it.

Lots of hide and go seek going on.

Tuesday we played again.

We also made this layered drink. Pour in cran-apple juice, add ice (lots of it), pour Sobe piƱacolada on the ice directly so it doesn't mix. Finally add blueberry pomegranate Gatorade. It tastes best all mix up. It was a hit with the littles, a lady from church and the big boys.

Wednesdaywas a tent day. On Thursday we did our bags.

Bo's had the Rainbow Loom in it. 

Then we did boxes.

Then we did fireworks!

I let Bo light some, which was very exciting for all involved.

Here's our video.

Bo's Spanish words:
Red- rojo
White- blanco
Blue- azul
Star- estrella
Flag- bandera
