This is a fun activity for your kids while camping. It’s really two activities – making the paint and painting. Making the paint couldn’t be easier.
Mix a 1:1 ratio of cornstarch and water. Add food coloring to make the colors. They paint will dry a lighter color than it looks when wet, so keep this in mind. You may want to use more food coloring than you think you need.
You’ve probably seen these lights in campgrounds. They are very popular around our part of the country. You can make them yourself quite easily. All you need are 9 oz. plastic cups, a stapler and a string of lights. You can also make them using a hole punch and zip ties. Make them in the way that works for you.
This is a fun activity for your camping kids. They will absolutely love making one of these hanging lights. These would even be great gifts for your kids to make for camping grandparents, etc.
Here is a gallery of my second Halloween in the RV. We went back to our hometown to trick-or-treat and spend time with family. My grandparents live on the same street as we used to, so I saw lots of my old neighbors.
I went as a Southern Belle for Halloween because my Mommy and Daddy are always saying that I talk and act like a Southern Belle. I loved the costume because it was fancy and pretty!

This was my Halloween goodies from Mommy & Daddy. Notice that they didn’t give me any candy, which was probably a good idea since I got so much trick-or-treating. I got some Halloween stickers, glow necklaces, an Animal Planet coloring book and a crib and high chair for my baby dolls!
Mommy had all the lights turned off and the candle burning when I woke up to see my goodies.
We put an orange bulb in our bucket light, then drew a jack-o-lantern face on it with a dry erase marker for Halloween. You can put anything on your bucket light with a dry erase marker. It wipes right off!
