Crafting Smiles

When finished, divide campers into cabin groups where everyone knows each other. Exchange paper bodies. Using markers, have each camper write several statements on each paper. For example, encourage comments such as, “Samantha helped me find my beach towel when I wanted to go swimming” or, “Jared is a great soccer player!” Other comments could be, “Adam shared his candy with me yesterday” or, “Hayley always has a smile when she wakes up.” Keep exchanging papers until everyone has written comments on every camper’s paper body.

If space allows, hang these life-size murals so everyone can see what wonderful campers you have. Campers also get a boost to their self-confidence when they read positive comments from their fellow campers.

Simply roll up each body and secure with a rubber band to take home.
