I want to do a day camp with my daughter and her friends. Has anyone done something like this with 8yr olds and what would you do?
Thanks!

I've never done it but I think it would be a LOT of work and a LOT of mess and a LOT of fun. icon_biggrin.gif
Maybe do cupcake decorating? Or cookie decorating.

Cupcakes would be a good one. They are little, easy to ice and you can decorate alot of things.

With that age, stick to the basics and medium or thin icing. I would do dots, stars, swirls. Maybe the figure piping faces and clowns. I wouldn't spent alot of time teaching them other than showing them a few basics. They aren't gonna want to sit still that long and will have fun just playing with the icing alone.

Make sure you don't fill the bags very full. I would go about 1/4 of the bag full. You also want to want to use some sort of bag ties on them. Either Wilton's version or rubber bands.

I would also limit colors for kids. Give all of them the same three or 4 colors to use. I would also give them each their own bags. Kids that age are going to do alot of finger and tool licking.
