It’s that time of year again! After years of making pillow treats and secret sister gifts for Girls Camp, I finally got to go with the girls to camp this year! I was not counting on 5 days of no cell service or internet, but we all survived! In case you don’t know, a pillow treat is just a little surprise we leave on each girl’s pillow that is something fun, yummy, and/or motivational.
Without further ado, here are the daily pillow treats I made for our girls. Some of these are a mix of other ideas and printables I found on Pinterest, so those links are below. Our stake camp theme was “Aim High.”
Pillow Treats Day 1: Sticky Note Holders
I used my Silhouette CAMEO to cut a sticky note holder designed by Lori Whitlock (design ID #62669 in the Silhouette Design Store). The only change I made was to add the quote to the front white square and had my CAMEO cut it as a print & cut. These are so easy to put together! (I used 3″ x 3″ sticky notes you can find on Amazon HERE and the pens HERE.)
Pillow Treats Day 2: Candy Tubes
On the second evening, I left these candy tubes on all the girls’ pillows. I’ve done these candy tubes twice before, but I just added a different embellishment this time. I found our youth annual theme (James 1:5-6) from Hang a Ribbon on the Moon, chose my favorite version of her printables, and again had my Silhouette CAMEO cut it out in 3″ circles.
I use Willy Wonka Everlasting Gobstoppers in 1″ cellophane bags (you can find them HERE). You can use any treat of a similar size, but I love the rainbow colors! I’ve used them for past girls camps like THIS and like THIS.
Pillow Treats Day 3: Breathmint Arrows
On the third night, I gave out this thought that ties in with our “Aim High” camp theme. I found a free printable from Play.Party.Plan. and made my own “arrows” by hot gluing arrow ends (cut with my CAMEO) on to a pack of Breath Savers.
The arrows are modified from Amy Robison’s design #118067. I just used the knife tool in Silhouette Studio to cut out the middle section and remove it. The mints are hot glued to the printable.
So that’s it! I know Girls Camp is over for most of you this year, but go ahead and Pin this post so you and others can find it for future years! 🙂 I’m sure you crafty people can adapt these ideas for other things like secret sister gifts, too.
