My sister is staying at an outdoor science camp with her 6th grade class for the entire week. Families have the option to write letters while their child is at camp. I was wondering if anyone had any fun ideas on what to mail? I was thinking about drawing her something to include with her letter, but my drawing skills are limited to stick figures... Any ideas?

Great question; she's lucky to have such a great older sister!
My little sister recently attended her first sleepaway camp, and she was feeling a little homesick. I sent her a letter, along with a few coloring pages I printed, and a small box of crayons.
The coloring pages were mainly horse themed, as she was at horseback riding camp and (clearly) loves horses. I think coloring pages are a fun option because they give kids something to do during some of the down time. They were a huge hit! Education.com has a bunch of free, printable coloring pages. Try browsing the hundreds of options - you can narrow them down by sub-topics such as sports, fairy tales, animals, vehicles, etc. Hope you find something she likes!
Additionally, another member previously asked a similar question about homesickness, and received some cool ideas. You may find some helpful information in the responses to that member's question.
