Our church puts on an area-wide girls' camp for girls ages 12-18 - - this year I was the Stake Camp Craft Specialist (when I told Trevor he thought I was making it up - yes, it's a real thing!) - I had an assistant which was very nice. Plan fun, fabulous, yet cheap, crafts for 150 girls, each day for 4 days - phew!
The first day we made journals, as seen here on Your Homebased Mom:
We used paper, embellishments, and fun duct tape. I bought the Composition Notebooks in bulk - - be on the lookout at back-to-school sales and you might be able to get a good deal.
I thought this was great for a first day craft because then they had journals to write in the rest of the week - perfect.
