Christmas Day Camp Tote Project

The first project at every Day Camp is to create a place for the children to keep their completed projects throughout the day. I found these baskets in red and green at the dollar store. To personalize them I had each child lace Christmas garland through the top row of holes in the basket. We used clear tape to connect the ends of the garland. I gave each child a construction paper star that I had cut out ahead of time and had them decorate one side of it with crayons then we printed their name on the other side. I covered the finished stars in clear packing tape to make them more durable. We punched a hole in the top of the star and tied the star to the front of the basket tote with ribbon.

All of the completed basket totes were placed on a low table in a row from oldest to youngest where they stayed all day. As the children completed their projects they put their handmade Christmas treasures in their very own Christmas Day Camp tote.
