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
