Growing up glitterless

emmaI know glitterless isn’t a word to regular folks. But that phrase was defined in our home. My husband likes our home glitter-free. Normally, I’d agree. I don’t like finding glitter stuck to my eye lid, unless I put it there. It seems like it takes forever to get the glitter out of the carpet, off the dog, out of our hair. I get it, I do. However, we have a four year old. A very creative four year old who loves glitter.

Emma’s top craft of choice would be anything with paint, glue, paper cutting, or glitter. Doug feels these items are best utilized at school or camp. Which is why we signed Emma up for her first camp this summer.

After looking into what was available around the city, we picked Camp Galileo. Galileo has an innovation feel to it, campers will be using their talents to create unique projects that will expand their creativity. I couldn’t have found a better space for Emma. Camp Galileo has several different themes to choose from. Emma and I sat down and went through the catalogue to figure out what she’d like to do for the week. I was surprised when she picked Space Odyssey, developed with the Chabot Space & Science Center. But when the description said there’d be cutting, folding, gluing, and a GLITTER board involved, she was sold.

This post is part of a spon­sored cam­paign with Camp Galileo. I received one free week of camp for Emma to experience Galileo; however, all opinions are my own.

    Sounds like a lovely camp; I was sold at glitter, too! :)

      I hope she has a great time. Since I posted, I’ve had a change of heart about glitter and glue. I’m turning our basement family room into a craft space. So excited!
