I work at a local summer horse camp and we are looking for ideas for horse or
horse related craft ideas. The kids are usually between 6 and 16 but sometimes younger.

If anyone has any ideas on something fun the kids could do, please post or PM me!
We'd greatly appreciate it. We've had camp for 4 years now and several of the kids
have been repeat students. I'd like to have something new for them. You can only
decorate so many t-shirts and tote bags.

Thanks bushels and acres!!!

Do you have access to old horseshoes? I could see turning one into a picture frame, add something so it can stand, or be hung up, add a snapshot of the camper, maybe decorate it a little? Or just make it a frame. A neat memory of camp.
Small cheap wooden boxes from the craft store. They can paint them, or not. Horse and horse related pictures cut out of equestrian magazines, or photocopied, to glue on top. To make a trinket/treasure box. Spray a coat of sealer on top.
Bookmarks? Pictures again, use a gluestick to stick them to construction paper.
Or, if you can find any horse related charms cheaply, make a ribbon book thong type bookmark.
Shrinky dinks? They color them, punch a hole in them, bake them, and attach them to a keyring? That could be for keyrings or jewelry.
A suncatcher? There's lots of them on here, maybe there's an easy tute. One I kind of remember from Highlights magazine involved pieces of colored tissue paper, and the outline of the design was cut out of a sheet of black construction paper and laid over the tissue, a stained glass effect. I suppose it could be sandwiched between a thin piece of clear plastic for durability, and cut 2 frame shapes from the contruction paper to sandwich it between? My memory is really vague on this...
Magnets of some kind?
Decorate the cover of a notebook, or a journal? Use plain or lined paper and make a blank book, punch holes in the edge, and string the paper together with yarn or twine or ribbon, something thicker like cardboard for the cover perhaps, and decorate them?
Hope this helps. Good luck with camp!

In an issue of "ClothPaperScissors" (last winter)  there was a horse ornament - made of muslin and then hand-painted. I'll see if there is a link.

Thank you a bunch! I'll have to make up some samples to see what it will take!
I think the kids will really like these ideas!
