One of the best things about summer camp, besides making new friends, swimming, and playing Capture the Flag, is coming home with armfuls of arts-and-crafts to show your family. Since many camps are canceled this summer, we’re doing our best to bring the joy of camp crafting to our kids at home. I came up with this list of camp craft kits that will help bring summer camp right to your door this summer. I hope you enjoy them! Let me know in the comments what your favorite camp craft was as a kid.

Rock painting kit: Decorate your house and garden with fun painted rocks! Perfect for all ages.
Who could forget that staple of summer camp, the friendship bracelet? This set of string and book make it easy to learn how to make bracelets to keep and share. Perfect for older kids!Tie-dye kit and soda ash: Bring the rainbow home with tie-dye! We do this every summer and always look forward to it. A tip is to soak your clothes in soda ash before you die them. This fixes the die in place so the colors turn out vibrant. Then, let your dyed clothes sit overnight before rinsing them for bright colors that are sure to impress.
Make a mural on your driveway or sidewalk with a big multipack of sidewalk chalk. Write messages, make hopscotch games, or draw. Chalk is always a good time.
