So, for Dopps Camp this year (read below for "Dopps Camp" explanation), my mom, 2 sisters-in-law, and myself are in charge of a craft for the children and a craft for the ladies. We are off to a good start with ideas, but wanted to open it up for other ideas from the bloggy world at large. SO, if you have any great ideas, bring 'em! You can post them or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The explanation for my email address is a whole different blog post.
So, what does Dopps Camp entail? Well, let me start off with numbers. 100. Typically we plan for somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 people. This is JUST my dad's side of the family. This is JUST immediate family. 100. So, you figure for crafts, we'll need crafts for about 30-ish people. That's not only a wad of cash if you're not careful, but much planning, shopping (ick!), and preparation.
Because of the large family, we rent an entire camp for the holidays...one year Christmas, the next year Thanksgiving. We spend a weekend or several days there just all being together and lovin' every moment of it! We are a very close-knit family and all look forward to Dopps Camp every year.
SO...here are the guidlines for the craft...perhaps this should have been up above...
2. Easy-ish (we usually have a few hours in which to get all 30 kids/ladies through the craft)
3. Winter/Christmas themed
So, bring 'em my way and I thank you kindly in advance! :)
