I just finished my annual art and cooking camp. This year’s theme was ‘Let’s Go to Japan’. We did lots of FUN art and cooking projects. All the campers were 9-11 years old.
Here’s a list of all the art and cooking projects we created:
Day one: koi fish kites (koi noburi) and bento box lunch
Day two: suminagashi prints and decorated rice balls bento
Day three: cloisonne collage and Japanese crepes
Day four: gyotaku fish prints and mushi-pan steamed cakes
Day five: Beckoning cat charms and ‘octopus’ bento
In addition, we read a lot of wonderful books about Japan, and practiced Japanese hiragana writing with brush pens.
I’ll be writing a bunch of posts with much more detail, including all the recipes! Check back this week to find out more.
