Splish, Splash, Beach Bash – June 12-15

We are kicking off summer with a huge beach party!  Catch a wave and surf on over for a week full of amazing crafts including a giant wooden surf board, mixed media 3D shark or mermaid art, sea shell wind chime, flipflop craft, and starfish wands or swordfish swords.  And no beach trip is complete without a stop for some ice cream!  We will make some homemade ice cream and paint ceramic ice cream bowl shaped like a waffle cone.  Doodlers will also create a summer scrapbook that will be perfect to keep track of fun memories created over the whole summer.  When our families come for the art show at the end of camp, we will teach them the Beach Party Boogie. Can’t wait to kick-off summer with you!

I can’t wait!
