This one is easy to make, and includes knot-tying, which is another camp staple! To make this bracelet, you only need 2 supplies: cord and pony beads.

Less Mess Tie Dye with Kids - so smart!

To me, camp means tie dye. I didn’t get to tie dye every time I went to camp, but it really was one of my favorite activities. One of my favorite camp photos is from a Girl Scout Day Camp where we all wore tie dye camp shirts. So, when trying to re-create traditional camp […]
