Craft Lightning Camp Crafts – Day 5 Roundup

It is the final day of our Craft Lightning week – a week filled with crafts that can be done in 15 minutes or less. My crafting partner for Craft Lightning is Angie from The Country Chic Cottage, and each morning both she and I have been sharing a fun and fast camp craft – and each evening we’ve been sharing with you camp crafts from our blogging friends.

If you’ve missed anything so far, check out Day 1 Camp Crafts, Day 2 Camp Crafts, Day 3 Camp Crafts, and Day 4 Camp Crafts.

Let’s get to today’s awesome fast camp craft projects!


Over at Creative Cynchronicity, Cyn made this fun Fire Breathing Dragon Craft – kids will love making this, especially paired with a campfire story about a dragon!

Over at LisaStuf, check out this fun monogrammed coaster – a simple craft for kids to make and give to their parents after camp is over.




Over at 365 Days of Crafts, Niki made this cute hairbow – if your kids have “troop colors” for each of the troops at the camp, these will be perfect for easily identifying which girl belongs in which group – and they’ll have fun making them to boot!



After a day of learning about animal tracks at camp, how about making your very own dinosaur fossils? Kim at A Night Owl Blog shows you how it is done.


Painting is always a fun camp craft – kick it up a notch by painting with scratch and sniff paint, like Sarah from Clever Pink Pirate.

I was a Girl Scout, and remember spending hours making my swaps before heading up to camp – this rolled-up sleeping bag camp swap made by Marilyn over at 4 You with Love is super cute!


Sleeping Bag Potlatch


Have fun getting around camp on these awesome Tin Can Stilts, Paula at Frog Prince Paperie shows you how! Since you get to make them and paint them, it is like two crafts in one!



Decorate your campsite with these fun paper windsocks from Alli made with Happy. Kids will love coming up with different color combinations, and watching them twist and turn in the breeze.

These feather topped pencils by Kelly at Live Laugh Rowe are a fun camp craft as well – you can use store-bought feathers, or ones you find at the campsite!


Feather Topped Pencils


Kids can go home with a fun yarn chandelier to decorate their rooms, Albion Gould shows you how. You can customize the colors and beads in any way you (or your campers) like!

My crafty partner for this series, Angie from the Country Chic Cottage made this fun terra cotta solar light – a great no-flame way to light the campsite at night, and a fun souvenir for kids to take home after camp is over.


And I made a simple camp craft – painted wooden frame magnets. A quick and easy camp craft to have handy, and keep kids entertained.
