Girls Camp "Daughter of a King"

I decided that I wanted to share one of my favorite books with the girls while at camp.  This book is called “Daughter of a King” by Rachel Ann Nunes.  This book was given to one of my daughters several years ago for her birthday from her Grandma.  There is such a wonderful message in this book and it truly pertains to all of us.  I wanted to have something to give the girls to go along with this.  I have a whole bunch of these wooden squares left from a project I was doing last year, so I thought I could make a pendant out of them.  I printed out the little message and mod podged them onto the painted wooden squares.  After several layers of mod podge I put some resin on top and let dry overnight.  I then drilled the holes and threaded onto some cord.  I embellished with some beads.

I will have to let you know how these do at camp.  Wish me luck.

Girls Camp Prescription Bottles

I found this idea off of Pinterest.  Where else would I go?  I am so addicted to that site. Aren’t we all?   I found these neat pill bottles with a cute little prescription for skittles geared towards Girls Camp.  I decided to make these as one of my pillow treats. The site I got this from a site called Burlap and Denim.   You can download the labels from this site. The label says that the quantity is 100, but I could only fit about 60 skittles in each bottle, so I’m going to give each girl a prescription for 1 refill.

Girls Camp "Oh The Places You'll Stand!" (spin-off of Dr.Sues's "Oh The Places You'll Go!"

Oh The Places You'll Stand!

Girls Camp is right around the corner and I have been having all kinds of fun getting ready for it.  This year’s theme goes along with the mutual theme of “Standing in Holy Places.”  Our camp theme is a twist on Dr. Seuss’s book, “Oh, The Places You Will Go!”  It’s “Oh, The Places You Will Stand!” 

I am one of the leaders over the 4th year girls.  I have been so excited about going to girl’s camp this year.  I haven’t been to girl’s camp since I was 17.  I have been surfing the web to find ideas to go along with our theme.  I found so many and of course could not use them all, but I found some that were a must for me. 

I found this twist on the book “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” on Jessica Herbert’s Blog, Sherbert CafĂ©.  I absolutely loved it.  I then found pictures from the story that I pasted to paint and added the words.  This is how it turned out.
