Camp Create – Background Bonanza

Print

Oh my goodness, we’ve reached the last day of camp! We’ve so enjoyed having you as a camper this week, and before you pack up and head home to tell your family about all of the fun you had during session two of Camp Create, we’ve got one last craft for you to enjoy!

Print

As you recall, the goal this week was to participate in our craft sessions each day and earn your Camp Create badges. Below you’ll see all of the badges for the week. How did you do? Remember, you can download and then print the Camp Create Session Two 2016 Badge Guide PDF as a souvenir of your creative week. The PDF can be found HERE. Don’t forget you still have time to complete all of the Creative Challenges and add them to the InLinkz for each day!

Did you remember to grab your participation badge? Copy and paste this image and post it on your blog, Facebook page, or Instagram feed to let everyone back home know how you spent your summer vacation. If you’re HMTL savvy, you can find a direct link to the image HERE.

OK, campers! It’s time to earn your final badge. And it sure is inspiring! We’re hoping that once you complete this challenge, you’ve earned all five of the badges from Camp Create. Are you ready campers? Let’s begin.

    WOW, that was a lot of coloring.. Between Kraft paper
    and the pencils. It seemed to really involve a lot of coloring. lt came out really pretty though. outlining everything in white was the final touch that made everything really pop. I am looking forward to making a background.
