Hi,
I'm keeping my kids home for most of the summer. Want to go on a family trip in augusr. Maybe will send one or two of my kids to a day camp for a week or two...

I'm getting tremendous pushback from one of my kids- they really wants to go to camp. But I already booked them for a few sessions of another activity (like swimming lessons, art club, etc.)...

Biggest reason to want camp is peer pressure and wanting to be with friends.
Other major reasons are too boring at home and want to swim every day.

I feel so bad.
Especially BC I'm not a fun counselor,

Please give me ideas of activities I can do with my kids this summer- ages 3-10.

I'm thinking-
One day cook/bake activity (ideas?)
One day major art activity (ideas?)
One day major trip (nature trail, etc.)
Daily craft (IDEAS??!! My kids like crafts)
What else?

I'm not a very structured person, so daily schedules won't work for me.

I'd rather two or three activities planned per day, but not necessarily regimented schedule with time slots.

ANY IDEAS HOW TO FILL OUR DAYS?
Thank you!!!

look at michaels kids club online for free zoom art classes, you need to buy the supplies though.
cake decorating
water balloons/water guns
order craft kits, like ceramics painting, paint by numbers, suncatchers, sand art.

Camps make themes for a reason. To make decisions easier!

Some ideas:

International camp
Week #1: Italian - make spaghetti & meatball cupcakes, tiramisu. Decorate frisbees as pizzas, colored pasta necklaces or collages, paint or decorate wooden spoons, build a leaning tower, dig canals in a sand table and sail boats in Venice. Wear Italian colors on your field trip.
Week #2: Israel - make falafel from scratch, milk & honey cookies. Do foil art Kotel, sequin art fruits of Eretz Yisroel, decorate wooden Hebrew letters for their rooms, make Israel mugs
etc.

OR

Yom Tov camp
Week #1: Chanukah - make latkes and donuts. Decorate wooden dreidels, sculpt clay dreidels, build a giant menorah out of plastic cups, squeeze olive oil, make homemade chocolate coins
Week #2: Purim - make hamentashen. Decorate masks, weave baskets, clown cupcakes, shrinky-dink Shalach Manos tags
etc.
