Creativity Runs Wild During Art Time

The Explorers started the first week of session two with Fourth of July inspired art projects. Students decorated colorful pinwheels and constructed cardboard airplanes that they tested outside. Some campers took the materials from the art project to build their own bow and arrows and colorful hats. Throughout the week, these campers improved on their projects by further testing and developing their crafts.

In the second week of session two, Explorers used paper bags and plates to create their own farm at Saklan. Students made pink pigs, green turtles, and white chickens out of paper plates and construction paper. To make our farm more complete, campers also created farmers to take care of the farm and other farm animals.

During the final week of session two, our Explorer campers decorated their own personal paper fans with flag-related designs to use against the summer heat. Then, on Thursday, students used construction paper to create elaborate marble mazes, which they enjoyed during free time.
