Packing for summer camp can be tough.  Depending on how long you’ll be there, you’ll need to have a packing list of all your camp essentials.  There are certain things that you may not even realize you need but can be very helpful and make your camp life a lot easier!  Here are some things to make sure you include on your packing list! 🙂

  • Bug spray.  This is crucial!  Getting eaten up by a bunch of mosquitos on the first day of camp will make the rest of your experience much worse (and lots itchier!).
  • Disposable camera.  If you’re not allowed to have your phones, taking a disposable camera is a good way to still capture the memories (especially if you can’t have any electronics!).Chelsea Crockett - Camp Essentials
  • Rain jacket.  Weather can often be very unpredictable.  Pack a rain jacket and maybe even rain shoes for those rainy camp days.
  • Ziploc/plastic bags.  Sometimes your clothes will get dirty or wet.  Take some disposable bags to store any wet swimsuits, muddy shirts, etc.
  • Deck of cards/board game.  Once again, the weather may not be perfect!  Take a deck or cards and your favorite board games to play when boredom strikes.
  • Labels.  You may want to consider doing this before you leave.  Label anything that might get mixed up with other campers’ such as phone chargers, shampoo, face wash, etc.

Hopefully this helps you feel prepared for your camp this summer! 🙂

Sporty Looks for Your Favorite Spring Games

Since hockey season is nearing to an end and baseball is just about to begin, you’ll need some tips on how to look sporty yet stylish for each and every game! Sporting events are some of my favorite things to attend with my friends or family, and to look cute while doing so! There are so many different ensembles of outfits to create, here are a few of my faves :)!Chelsea Crockett - Sports Outfit

Your simplest and easiest way to go is a casual outfit. Just throw on a pair of leggings and your favorite team’s oversized jersey or t-shirt. As for adding a little more to your outfit, throw in a cute headband or bandana that matches your team’s colors. Accessorize with some fun colored beads or socks!

For a less casual look, the outfit on the right is so so cute! Whatever your team’s colors might be, find a matching flannel that goes with them. Wear your jersey and tie your flannel around your waist! In my opinion, the ripped boyfriend jeans complete the look. So… find yourself a pair to rock with some retro converse. I think even the sunglasses are a stylish touch!

If you’re going for a dressy look, it probably isn’t too easy to come up with something formal for a sporting event… but hopefully I can help with that! If you have a skater skirt, tuck in your shirt or jersey and rock it with a pair of booties. If you have time to shop around before game day, look for a jersey dress. They’re so cute but sometime tough to find!

What’s your go-to sports outfit? Lemme know insiders!

Glow sticks are can be the life of any party. You can do so much with them! I had no idea of all the fun that you can have when you get a little creative with glow sticks. Having a nighttime/evening party and need some games? Look no further!

1. Glow in the dark bowling:

Put a glow stick into a water bottle to create a glow in the dark bowling pin! Make at least 6 pins and use a soccer or basketball as your bowling ball!

2. Glow stick ring toss:

What is the one thing that could make ring toss more fun? Make it glow in the dark! Make the pole out of anything you want. The necklace glow sticks are the perfect size to make rings for ring toss!

3. Glow in the dark drink cups:

Cool-Glow-Stick-Crafts-Glow-In-The-Dark-Drinks-11

For your next spring get-together or summer bonfire, use this cool trick! Take a larger sized plastic cup, put a glow stick bracelet in the bottom, and then put a smaller clear plastic cup inside the larger one! It will make your drink look like it is glowing. So cool!

Keep these sweet tips in mind for your next evening get together!

Summer Fun: Paint Balloon Darts Game

Have you ever seen Princess Diaries? If so, think back to the scene where Mia and her mom are in their house, throwing darts at paint-filled balloons, letting off some serious steam. Did anyone else feel insanely jealous of them?! I know I totally did. Well, I have now added this activity to my summer bucket list, and I think you should, too! This is how you play “Paint Balloon Darts”.61cd4d6970b2e55742d48860371f5976

You just need some water balloons, some washable paint, darts, and a canvas or wooden back board! Fill a bottle
with a narrow tip with paint and use it to fill your balloons. Fill them up about ¼ of the way, and then tie them off. Use pushpins to attach them to your wooden backboard or canvas. After you have done so, stand back and let ‘er rip! You can have a group of people split into teams and compete to see which group can bust more balloons than the other, or you can just toss the darts for fun! If you use a canvas, you can save it and it can be a fun art piece!

I hope you ladies can use this fun game to let off some steam this summer just like Mia Thermopolis, Princess of Genovia, did. 😉

XOXO, Chels

Backyard BBQ Game Ideas

With Fourth of July just around the corner, many of you may be going to or hosting a backyard BBQ!  Who doesn’t love BBQ ribs with some grilled corn on the cob and cheesy potato casserole?  I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!  While the food is always delicious, sometimes it’s fun to add a little pizazz to your party by adding some backyard BBQ games.  One of my favorites is an old fashioned egg toss.  Everyone grabs a partner and an egg.  You face your partner, arm’s length apart, and toss the egg to him/her.  Then, everyone takes one giant step back away from his/her partner.  You toss again.  If your egg drops, then you and your partner are out.  The game continues until the last team stands alone, hence the winners!

Another game that I have heard of has to do with eating delicious hot dogs.  Who wouldn’t want to join in on that :)?  You cover a hot dog with ketchup or mustard and dangle it from a string.  Then ask a partner to eat the dangling hotdog while holding their arms behind their back.  You can hang quite a few dogs at a time.  Ready, set, go….the first person to eat his/her hot dog is the winner!

Chelsea Crockett - Soda BoxesLastly, is a game called Soda Shoes.  Over the next week, save and collect some empty cases of soda boxes like the ones on the left.  These will be used as giant shoes!  Divide your guests into two relay teams.  Each player slips his/her feet into the “shoes” and races down and back for the relay.  The team whose players finish first wins!

Don’t forget to purchase some fun prizes to give to the winners of the games.  I hope these ideas help to make your party a success!

Good luck! – Chelsea

Summer Fun for Big Kids

Big kids can have a blast in the spring and summer, too! Little kids can’t have all the fun! Here are some ways big kids can rock the warm months.

Use an inflatable boat as kiddie pool. That’s right, an inflatable boat! It is the perfect size for a teenager to sit it, and it is small enough that the water will stay warm and heat up really quick. When you are sunbathing on the lawn or by the pool, you can grab a book and hop in your personal pool.

Inflatable twister. I seriously love this idea. Twister is already a blast, but when you blow it up and make it adult-sized, that makes it even better! This game is great for any teen party, and EVERYONE will want to join in! Twist away!

I am so excited to try these awesome ideas! Are you?Inflatable outdoor movie screen. This is a great idea for any summer or spring evening. Grab a group of friends, a great movie, a projector, and this cool movie screen! You can have the ultimate movie night! I cannot wait!

I love thrift shopping. You can find such cute stuff, and it’s so cheap! If you are in need of a girls night and want a super fun game to play together, I recommend the thrift store game! Here is how you play it:

 1. Split into teams of two.

2. The first team to find and photograph themselves with 10 out of the 20 items on the list wins! You can use your phone to take the pictures which makes it super quick and easy!chelsea crockett thrift store game

3. If the item you find is an article of clothing, then you have to wear it for the picture! NO EXCEPTIONS! 😉

4. You should probably spend at least a couple bucks in the store just to show some courtesy because you practically just used their store as a battleground!  

 Does this not sound like a total blast?! You all will be laughing so hard the whole time, and you will have an arsenal of awkward pictures of your friends because of all of the goofy clothes you will be trying on! It is a total win win situation! Only got 20$ in your pocket? Then go pop some tags at a thrift shop with your best buds!

 Happy thrifting!

XOXO, Chels
