Summer Sensations

Posted 05-10-2008 at 08:17 PM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

It's May...so for those of you with young children...school will be getting out for summer break within the next few weeks. Recently I have started working on some ideas for Summer Sensations kits. These are little put together kits that can be stored on the shelf or in a closet and pulled out when the "I'm Bored" strikes...which when my kids were young was about day four of summer break. I'm thinking about four different types of kits.
  • Prop Kits (for pretend play)
  • Crafty Kits
  • Exploration Kits
  • Experience Kits
Right now I am working on a prop kit that has a pirates theme. You can use a copier paper box...which works perfectly for storing the pirate gear. A Hat, handerchief with skulls and crossbones, sword, gold coins, treasure map, treasure chest, eye patch, etc.


I am also putting together an exploration kit called Bugs Galore which includes things like:
  • Bug jar (You can make your own from a plastic mayo jar or Walmart has some cheap ones)
  • Magifying
