    DIY Camp Seat Cushion

    How many of you were once a Girl Scout (or Boy Scout)? I loved those days, especially the summer camp outs. Earning badges in fire making and etiquette, tying knots and survival skills...oh, the joys of childhood! And this craft comes directly from my memories of scouting, and nights spent around the campfire. One year I made this great DIY camp seat cushion that we would keep with us so that we could sit on the ground around the fire more comfortably. Of course, I have taken that initial woven newspaper mat and amped it up a bit with some color. And I can't wait to see your camping mats. (email me at hello@inthebagkidscrafts.com).
