Camping Out, a look inside the tent~

The invites went out, the guests arrived, the party was a hit!

Now here's a closer look at all the little details, the behind the scenes of Camp Jammer. I should mention that we didn't have a big budget for this shindig, but we always enjoy making, thifting, recycling whatever we can so the $0 small budget wasn't really a concern. The majority of the money was spent on food, as is usually the case. Speaking of food...

Mini bags of Better Made Chips proudly on display
(It's a Michigan "thing")
S'more Trail Mix Party Favors!
{Honey Graham cereal, mini marshmallows & chocolate chunks}
"Puffed" Pop Corn Movie Treats
"Camp Jammers' wants to Thank You for 'poppin' over"
Oh yes, a baking combination that is S'MORE right than you know!
And here's how you make it!

I made Old-Fashioned REAL lemonade
& pre-filled Mason Jars ready for the taking.
We also offered Water & a cooler full of Beer. 
-Roll cutlery in a napkin
-Take a plate
-Punch a hole in the side
-Attach napkin roll with ribbon
-Sit back & marvel at how smart people will think you are...
It wouldn't be REAL camping if Duct Tape wasn't involved somehow...
How could I NOT make this sign when I had giant
pieces of poster board lying around the house?!
Thread+needle+ballons=Easy Ballon Garland!
No Camp would be complete without a Swimmin' Hole
And don't forget about Arts & Crafts!
We prepped our collection of milk cartons with white spray paint,
cut a hole in the side, hot glued on popsicle stick shingles
& attached a twine loop to the top.
Then the kiddos got to paint their new bird house, it was a big hit!
We even included a bag of seed to take home :)
Sheet Fort:
Bags full of old sheets- check!
Rope & twine- check!
Ladder- check!
Clothespins- check!
Feeling like a kid again- Check!!
We topped of the festivities we a movie outside!
If you can get your hands on a white sheet
& a projector then you are good to go!
'J' even had his own little camping chair to sit in :)
And since it was HIS birthday we
watched his favorite movie, Cars
And last but not least, the Kiddie Camper Packs!
At "check-in" each Kiddie Camper recieved:
a personalized Camp shirt (tshirt was thrifted, then I jazzed them up)
a personalized water bottle (Michaels Crafts- $1)
a bubble wand/glow necklace for the older kids (Dollar Tree)
binoculars (Dollar Tree)
chalk (Target Dollar Spot)
snacks: AirHead, raisins, fruit snacks
Bandana (Handmade by my mum)
Here's what the back looked like:
"MALLOW out & have S'MORE fun!"

We brought out the treat baskets full of s'more mix, chip bags & puffed popcorn, along with some Kool-Aid to wash it all down.
