kids summer horse camp- art

I have been teaching art to kid's during summer horse camp for 3 years now.
I am SO out of ideas, been on a billion DIY sites- which I'm still searching. The problem is I have an age range from 4 to 12 years old. The ranch owner's let me drop to 3 days per week, so that helps. I even have 2 autistic kids that take more do the 4 year olds. I do split them into groups. Can't do hot glue, glitter-acrylics are borderline. ALL girls. Any ideas ?? eeeeek.

We have done dream catchers from horse shoes, photo frames from them as well. We have had them paint the horses noses and let the horse muzzle paint. A scrapbook page of their week at camp would be nice.

I've helped out with a lot of horse camps for little kids. They definitely they love to paint the horses...If you have an old horse jump or barrel you can have them decorate & paint it, maybe put all their names & handprints on it. Good luck! :)

When we moved barns we needed name tags for the new tack room bridle racks so we had our camp kids do it. Is there a way each week the kids could make a new name tag be it for the tack room or the stalls themselves? Say- each week at the end of the week the students decorate a sign for the horse to remember them by or what not? I know it's fairly quick turn over but it was easy and cheap. They could even do it at the beginning of the week and take them home at the end but I know my mom hated all the crafts I brought home from camp she wouldn't have minded if one was left behind.
