We’re so excited to kick off the first month of our Summer Adventure series with this month’s crate theme: Camping! We hope the projects in this crate will inspire you to get outside and explore the wonders of nature and your own imagination.
With the first project, you’ll paint your very own backpack and personalize it with nature shapes, while learning about the science of evaporation. Observe how, as the paint dries, the fabric beneath the shapes becomes bleached by the sun.
Then, build your own DIY glowing campfire set — and pretend to roast marshmallows and tell campfire stories through the night! Take turns telling stories with your friends or family about adventures you’ve been on, or favorite memories, or even magical places.
Extend the fun with the explore! magazine, where you’ll learn how to have even more fun in nature. Learn how to cook s’mores indoors, build a chair tent, and make leaf rubbings. You’ll also find instructions on how to make your own water bottle holder to take on a hike, an outdoor scavenger hunt booklet, and all kinds of inspiration for ways to explore the outdoors.
p.s. Don’t miss the very special bonus gifts we’ve included this month! As a special thank you to our subscribers, you’ll receive a 32-page summer travel journal that includes tons of fun on-the-go games, activities, and stories to provide creative ideas for families all summer. And in addition, we’ve partnered with one of our favorite brands, Nature Box, to provide a special treat to keep you going on your outdoor adventures!
