We know campers love the craft shack at camp. In a research project conducted by Elmer’s (yes, the ubiquitous glue company) experts discovered many ways that crafting is good for kids.

If your child goes to camp this summer, you can extend the fun and do some simple crafting at home. Check out our Pinterest board for some easy ideas!
