I'm working on day camp activities. 

Art - Construction - Tin can "potato head" http://spoonful.com/crafts/can-do-robots.  We are going to use the rolls of peel and stick magnet & lighter weight items to keep the cost down.  I'm tossing around making this a multi use pencil holder or maybe making it a planter with grass "hair".

Engineer - Craft Stick catapult - http://doitandhow.com/2011/10/01/craft-stick-catapult/  J's group made a cooler one a few years back, but it took some parental help.  D was able to put this one together on his own.

Artist - scult clay - Clay Owl - http://4crazykings.blogspot.com/2009/04/how-to-make-quick-clay-owl.html  I made a sample with salt dough & shoved a paper clip in the back for a hook.  It worked out really well & it looks so darn tacky cute with paint & googly eyes.

Artisit - frame or mount a picture - Standing popsicle stick frame - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9oqVyWTRnA

Engineer - build a bridge - marshmallow & toothpick bridge - I really like this because it also has a testing section - http://www1.cyfernet.org/act-CYFAR/mom/02-08-Bridges/sweet-bridge.pdf
