Another activity we did during music camp was make shaker bottles. We asked the campers to bring a clear bottle with a screw-on lid. They then filled them with various small objects, including jingle bells, until they got the sound they desired.

One thing I love to do for camp is ask the campers to bring items from home. Last week I asked each of them to bring some sort of squeeze or spray bottle that they could use all week. Even though we always have these items at camp, it was so much more meaningful when brought from home. Not only did they love using their own, but they swapped with other campers to see how others' worked.
It's those little things!

Last Friday, one of my campers asked about this week's space camp. He thought awhile and then said, "We need a rocket. One that people can stand in." Believe me, I did put some thought into this, but couldn't quite put it together in my head. My daughter said, "Oh, he won't remember on Monday." Ha! Not only did he remember, but he had it all designed in his head. He told me exactly what he needed, how it needed to be constructed, and what needed to be placed on the outside.
