Flea Circus Mini Camp

for ages 8–12

Themes: Up-cycling/recycling, magnetism, balance/movement

Using recycled plastics, campers will create a three-ring circus tent complete with miniature “flea” circus acts. While no real fleas will be involved, campers will create a variety of circus acts including magnetic moving clown car and “flea sized” moving mechanical props. Additional activities include creating a side show exhibit of Sea-Monkeys (brine shrimp) and practicing circus skills like balance and juggling.

All materials and supplies to complete each project will be provided.
