Art Camp Day 3!

Captain America came to camp today! The boys drew their favorite super hero and a free draw picture and got ready for a fun ‘dirty’ project!

We made cement stepping stones! So after experimenting with the cement recopies on line we came up with what we think is the perfect mixture:

8 inch square pan, 4 cups quick set cement, 1 1/2 cup water

Using fluted disposable cake pans we poured the cement and the boys began decorating…

These gems worked perfect, we found them at the dollar store!

Then collected shell were added (what a perfect home for the beach treasures you bring home every year from your summer beach vacation.)

Perhaps the most fun project yet …. getting our hands dirty was fantastic!

We let them dry over night…

then painted the handprints to get them to stand out.

We brought out the hammers for the next project… we were now entering ‘boy heaven’: hammers and dirt!

We used the ‘nail’ alphabet from a local craft store to hammer the boys names on ‘washer’  bracelets.

Once they picked out the letters for their names they got started with the hammer.

My co-worker was the brave soul who held the nail while the boys used the hammer!

After the letters are done color them in with a black sharpie. Here is the finished project! All the bracelets have the boys first name and WWJD (What Would Jesus Do)!

Finally, Be sure to take time to photograph the ‘Happy Campers’. Remember the rule to get them to face the window or door light to get the right light on their faces…you will always be glad to make the effort to turn toward the light!
