We're getting ready to take an extended camping trip. Well, staying in a cabin - not exactly roughing it in a tent!

We'll be squashed in a small space, and even though we'll be spending many hours a day outdoors, there will be rain somedays, and we can't spend ALL our time outside! So, when the kids aren't doing schoolwork, and they are stuck inside, I'm planning lots of crafts and projects that they can do.

Oriental Trading has lots of great projects. One of the nicest things about their crafts, is they come packaged in one-project kits, usually. So I can hand the kids their kit, and there aren't left over pieces or cut up pieces all over the place.

Now, it's not the most artistic or creative of crafts, but they are great for when the kids should have busy hands!

We also create things from scratch, but I probably won't want to do this EVERY day!
