Hey friends…Guess what? I’ve been asked to partner with the well-loved toy company, Melissa & Doug, as an Honor Counselor during their virtual summer camp, Camp Sunny Patch. How fun! I’m a fan of M&D and I get to put my camp counselor skills to work (no surprise that I was once a camp counselor, is there?).
Does Melissa and Doug play as big role in your home as it does in mine? In our little corner of the world, we love Melissa & Doug for their wooden play food, numerous wooden puzzles, Wooden Take Along Tool Kit, stamp sets, and sticker books. Soooo, I’m obviously delighted to have the chance to bring this super-duper company in front of you, my readers.
At the beginning of each summer month (June, July, and August) Melissa & Doug will post a calendar of easy-to-implement activities that you can do in your own home or backyard. Here’s the June calendar that’s already underway. If you save corks or know someone who does, this week’s Camp Counselor Allie from No Time for Flashcards is leading us in a cuddly animal-cork craft. You can follow the complete Camp Sunny Patch Guide here.
To participate in any of the activities, you can easily download and print the month’s calendar and your child can earn badges for completing each project. The projects range from crafts to high energy play, they don’t require a lot of materials, and they aren’t difficult to implement. You can download weekly play activities, camp badges, and more at blog.melissaanddoug.com. It’s summer camp, but without all the extra costs and it’s right in your own home or backyard.
If you’re a fan of Melissa and Doug products and you don’t want to miss out on the latest M&D news, you can also sign up for their newsletter.
Keep your eyes open for some summer camp fun from me in the next few weeks.
