Toothpick/Marshmallow construction

Get out a box of toothpicks and a bag of miniature marshmallows, then let your kids build the biggest tower or bridge that they can. You may need to show them how to fit the pieces together, and I'm sure there will be a little snacking going on during the building, but it is all in good fun. You can also have the kids try this with gumdrops or other gummy candies instead of (or in addition to) the marshmallows). Kids can either work together to build, or they can each make their own construction.

Aluminum foil play

Let your kids get creative with aluminum foil. Give them each a sheet or two and tell them to mold it into whatever they want (you may need to demonstrate a few ideas the first time you have them
do this activity--try a mask, jewelry, animals, or anything else you can think of). Foil is pretty cheap, so let the kids use as much as they need and they will keep busy for quite awhile.

Sponge Ball

kids attending summer camp look forward to cooling off by playing in the water, and summer camp wouldn’t be camp without water games. Sponge ball is a fun and exciting game that involves lots of water and lots of fun.

Sponge ball is a lot like dodge ball, only sponge ball is played with a large absorbent sponge. The players line up against a building about three feet apart, and the person with the water-soaked sponge stands about twenty feet in back of an invisible line while trying to hit the other players with the wet sponge.

Flour Tag

Simply place about ½ cup of white flour in a clean sock, and tie a knot in the top. Each player receives a flour-filled sock. Camp kids participating in this fun camp activity should wear dark T-shirts, and form two separate teams. The teams attempt to tag players on the opposite team. The last person to be tagged is the winner of this fast and furious camp activity that is sure to burn lots of summertime energy. The flour can easily be wiped off when the game is over.

MAKE a "map" of where you are going.

Draw your own that has the major stops and cities, and a nice happy drawing for your final destination. Throw in a few simple drawings of landmarks you'll see along the way, such as a big bridge you'll or a mountain tunnel. A home made map is easy for kids to follow and gives them a clearer picture of how much further there is to go. If your kids are old enough and it's a trip that you take frequently, have the kids make their own map!


This game helps teach kids to look at the bright side of things in a silly way. For example, you say, "Unfortunately, there's a tiger in the car." Your son says, "Fortunately, he doesn't eat boys." Your daughter says, "Unfortunately, he's looking at me and licking his lips." You say, "Fortunately, I brought along my tiger-jaw-clamper." And so on, alternating between fortunate and unfortunate things.
