Help! Horse camp crafts...

My parents never sprung for me to go to horse camp, so this year will be my first at 32 yrs old!!!

My barn manager/friend is doing her first horse camp this summer and has asked me to assist with horsey arts/crafts for girls ages 6-14. I have taught elementary and middle school art and could do it in my sleep, but for the life of me, I can not think of many horse-related crafts that would be fairly inexpensive, quick, and interesting.

I would love to hear suggestions of crafts that those of you who have attended/taught horse camp have done and enjoyed!!!

Thanks!

Decorating horse shoes, and maybe let them take a picture of them with a horse that they ride during camp and you could put it in there.

For younger girls, maybe coloring in different horses.

Maybe (depending on how many girls attend the camp) you could get inexpensive halters and they could decorate them with glitter glue and beads and sequence.

Mmm...I was going to say teach them to tie rope halters, but that actually takes awhile to learn:P Still, maybe...
Maybe make rhythm beads, that's a lot less labor intensive :P

I decorated horse shoes and took a picture either with the horse I rode during the time I was at camp or a horse that I really liked in the barn. It was so much fun!

When I went to pony camp we decorated horse shoes and painted the ponies names we were riding on them. Also there are little wooden horses that they can paint to look like there favorite pony, umm take pictures of them with ponies and have them decorate picture frames for them

Just some ideas ill probably think of more later

How about decorating shirts? Like, all the kids bring in a white t-shirt. You can paint a horse using some little kid's paint...& some glitter. I did that at horse camp once- it was fun!
