Camping crafts are always popular with kids and I think a bit with grown ups too! As a family we love camping and if we can’t get out and about in our tent this year? Well we’re going to camp in our garden then. Either way it’s a great excuse to do some easy camping crafts and I think this campfire craft for kids has to be one of the simplest that we’ve shared so far, making it suitable for younger kids too….
Summer Crafts for Kids
I created this easy nature craft for kids last year after we an illness in the family meant we were confined to our home and garden, something that seems very relevant when I’m updating it now! While we were outside my daughter kept wanting to pick flowers and leaves to show me and to make things with (I had a lot of leaf ‘ice creams’) which got me thinking about other ways we could use her new found treasures. Using our tree template seemed the obvious answer, making a great starting place for a cute nature activity.

Making (and playing with!) frozen flowers is probably one of our most popular sensory play ideas ever and it’s easy to see why – they just look so pretty! I’m a great believer that if you want kids to do something then you have to make it interesting and inviting for them and these frozen flowers are so pretty that I’m always quite tempted to have a play with them myself. Actually I enjoy getting this activity prepped in advance too which isn’t something that I’ll say about everything! While it does involve advance preparation it really only takes a few minutes as you’ll be able to see in the video I’ve made and it can keep your kids busy for ages. What’s more it’s something that my kids have returned to year after year, my daughter was a toddler the first time we made this but fast forward to now a few years later and it’s still an activity that both kids enjoy….
