Materials you need: Old magazines, calendars, Sunday comics, construction paper or white paper, glue or paste, masking tape, felt pens. Cut out pictures of animals, forests, mountains or other items of interest out of old magazines and calendars. Take construction paper or plain white paper and cut it into different shapes (clouds, squares, rectangles, etc.). Paste or glue the pictures onto your paper. Leave room to write the child’s name. Bring masking tape and mark each child’s bunk with your bunk markers. This will help you learn each child’s name quickly (even at bedtime when they’re not wearing name tags).
Name Tag Decorations
Do not put anything on the face of your students’ nametags! You will have a chance Thursday night to decorate their tags and then, and only then may you mark on the face of their tags. Student Leaders often bring pens and paint, or beads to decorate tags. If you forget, you can borrow from others, and if you have extra please share!
- Materials Needed: Ribbon, construction paper, pictures, Sunday comics, rubber stamp, tape, peel and stick address labels.
- Bring six-inch pieces of ribbon (2 yards or 6 feet = 12 students) to tie around the nametag string to decorate your students’ nametags.
- Cut small pieces of paper or construction paper (approximately 1.5 inches for square shapes, or cut circles, triangles, etc.). Cut out small pictures, comic strip characters, or use a rubber stamp to decorate the paper. Take tape and tape your decoration to the nametag string.
- Use peel and stick address labels. Decorate them with stickers, small pictures, rubber stamps or comic strip characters. Wrap the label around the nametag string.
Materials you need: Old magazines, pictures, heavy paper, paste, and scissors.
Cut out pictures from an old magazine. Cut two strips of paper the length you wish for your bookmark. Paste the picture at the top of one strip. Then cut around the lower half of the picture. Paste the first strip of paper on top of the second strip, leaving open the place where you cut so that the bottom of the picture will hook over the page. Trim excess paper from the top and sides of the picture.
