Fundraising for Girl's Camp

Warning! Do not encourage this {UNLESS} you have endless amounts of free-time . This camp moneymaker was successful...we totally pitched it to the Elders Quorum for Mother's Day Gift's, but I spend the entire two days before and then a majority of M.D. delivering, etc. The bottom line, it's not worth the leaders time commitment and the leaders hard work. However, they looked so cute on the ladies that day at church. The women loved them! And we collected lots of money for the girl's!

Our hand-made corsages! Notice the little pearl-tipped pin in the rose.

We packaged them for presentation.

Homemade chocolate mint truffles too!

Little Picassos

As summer is winding down your kiddos may have had to too much of sun and chlorine and are in need of a new summer fun activity.....This is what my mother used to do......She would let us finger paint on newsprint spread out on the kitchen floor. When finished, throw newsprint away and hose kids off!! It was a great new take on art and the clean-up made for a fun outdoor water activity!
