You can easily adapt the Valentine project for a meaningful summer camp group activity, as well as solitary summer homescooling project. The green bag pictured below was purchased from Joann.com Fabrics. See http://www.joann.com/busy-kids-kids-camp-value-pack-drawstring-bags-set-of-5/zprd_11308525a/ If this item is not sale priced when you view it, try purchasing something comparable at the Dollar Tree, Michaels, etc.
Appliques and beads were added to give a festive look! Trial sized perfumes, hand lotions, and other useful gift items can easily be tucked inside each bag designed. For a special finishing touch, wrap your small gift items in coordinating colorful tissue paper purchased at the dollar store.
