Camp Pixie Dust Week 10-Wilderness Explorer Week

Image
Fly with you fairies! I can't believe Camp Pixie Dust is almost over! This week is Wilderness Explorer week. And the activity is to explore the outdoors. It can be the forest or a local park. I went to my local park a few times this summer and I even went camping, but I may go again.

Alternatively, you can celebrate this week by watching Legend of the Neverbeast. In fact, the talents I'm connecting this week to are animal and scout talents.

Remember exploring Pixie Hollow's wilderness? And fun fact; the Never Mine was actually in the Disney Fairies books before the online game.

Now for nostalgia; we're going to talk about the different famous fairies that visited camp throughout the years. In 2010, the fab 5 did attend and they even wore their troop uniforms, but they mainly just attended Lyria shows. The only one that paid an official visit was Silvermist for the Summer Splash party. Slate also visited the ballroom for the Great Games. That was actually his first visi…

Camp Pixie Dust 2018 Week 9-Camp Crafts

Image
Well, it's time for one of my favorite parts of camp; crafts! 2013 had a Camp Craft Week and I thought this was a perfect idea which I've done last year too.

Here are some summer craft ideas:

"Magic" rocks: This one is very simple; you'd paint rocks and add glitter on them. You can put these stones in a jar and they'll look nice

Glitter globe

What you'd need:

Small jar (you can paint the lid whichever color you'd want)GlitterCorn syrupWater Fill half the jar with corn syrup and half with water. Then, add the glitter. Screw the lid on tightly and shake the jar to see the pretty glittery colors!


Friendship bracelets (you can keep these for yourselves too): I've already posted about the traditional embroidery thread friendship bracelet. But there are other friendship bracelet ideas. These include stringing on beads or even threading buttons on a string.


Pins: I have two ideas; a felt flower or an apple. For the flower, you'd cut a flower shape out of …

Camp Pixie Dust 2018 Week 8-Summer Splash Party

Image
Hey y'all! Hope you all have had a flitterific time at camp! I was unable to post last week, but here's last week's badge.


 Before we start with this week's stuff, here's the answers to last week's Flower Power scavenger hunt:

1. Near Bubble Bounce in Dewdrop Vale
2. Springtime Orchard by Bobbin's
3. Palm Tree Cove near Butterfly Painter
4. Chilly Falls near Never Mine
5. Cherryblossom Heights near Petal Pick Up
6. Havendish Square next to the Tearoom entrance
7. Fairy Coliseum near Animal Derby sign
8. Treetop Bend near Neville's New Homes

This week, we're celebrating a Pixie Hollow tradition; the Summer Splash Party!

The Summer Splash Party began in 2009. There was a Silvermist preparation quest. This year, the party was supposed to be based off of a luau picture from the mainland. Iridessa and Silvermist even gave out leis that year.

Silvermist visited the party every year. There was a quest about choosing the lucky fish in 2010 and 2011. The luc…

Camp Pixie Dust 2018 Week 6-Flower Power

Image
Fly with you campers! Hope you all had a delicious treat week! I made Popsicles and had tons of ice cream sandwiches! As much as I enjoyed treat week, it's time for a new theme, and that theme is FLOWER POWER WEEK!

I really liked 2013's theme ideas, and that's what flower power is taken off of. And of course, we're celebrating garden talents this week. This week is all about beauty. I feel like it's easy to take the beauty of Pixie Hollow for granted. So I set up a scavenger hunt all about beauty! These items are all found in the original meadows (not the new ones). Please do not publicly share answers. I'll post the answers in two weeks.

1. 2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.

 And if you want to do a mainland scavenger hunt, here's a fun idea; find things (such as flowers) in the different colors. A good goal is to find one thing in all the colors on your list.
Now for camp memories! This week we'll reminisce on camp quests. In 2010, there were 2 quests that were added on …

Camp Pixie Dust 2018 Week 5-Camp Treats

Image
Fly with you pixie campers! Hope you all are having so much fun during camp! Last week, I feel like my belief in magic had strengthened. I remembered all the magical moments that happened during my life.

Now it's time for TREAT WEEK! And what better talent to celebrate than baking talents?

Summer isn't right without sweet summer treats! One obvious example are s'mores. Another example is ice cream. I'm going to eat some ice cream sandwiches this week and make popsicles. You can buy popsicles, or make them using popsicle molds. My favorite is the strawberry popsicles with chocolate chips inside. We make them every summer, but I hope to try new flavors. Popsicle recipes can be found online or in cookbooks.


Anyway, let's talk about more camp memories. 2010 introduced interactive meadow activities. First, Berry Ball in Neverfruit Grove was introduced, where you'd click on the blueberry basket in hopes of getting it in the hoop. Next, there was a cricket chorus in t…

Camp Pixie Dust 2018 Week 4-Magic in Everyday Life

Image
Hello pixie campers! I hope you're enjoying this flitterific summer! Hope you all enjoyed friendship week last week! I did a lot of work on my scrapbook and though I was unable to see anyone physically, I did manage to contact some people. Don't worry if you feel as if you missed friendship week though; you can attempt to earn last week's badge anytime throughout the summer.

 This week is all about magic in everyday life. This week is about the dust keeper talents because their talent is literally about magic. And in order to give all the talent troops a week, I'm adding music talents, because music just sounds magical!

Because I'm getting older, I'm unfortunately loosing my ability to believe in magic (which I won't let happen). However, in the summer, I somehow have a stronger belief in magic than any other time of year. I don't know why really. But I did see something magical during my walk yesterday. One tree sort of looked like it had a door on it…

Camp Pixie Dust 2018-Week 3-Friendship

Image
Fly with you fairies! I hope you all are enjoying Camp Pixie Dust! I really enjoyed Story Week. I worked on this large document I have with a bunch of random stories from my life. And...I had a few scary dreams (probably because I'm a night owl).

Anyway, this week celebrates Troop Turtle (tinker talent) and friendship! I don't know why I put these two together; I guess because many of the Tinkerbell movies are about friendship.

I had a friendship week last week, and this week is a great excuse to communicate with friends. Try communicating with people you haven't seen in a while. And if you can't, try making a scrapbook on the fun memories you had with friends.

A fun activity to try, which I tried last year, is to create friendship bracelets. You can give them to a friend or keep it for yourself. You'll need five different colors of embroidery floss and a button.

Steps:

Cut 2 to 3 (I usually cut 2) feet of the first four thread colors. For the fifth color, I make t…
