What Our Kids Made at Summer Camp: Proud Parents Posting Adorable Photos of Arts & Crafts on Social Media

Back to school means the end of summer — and for some kids, the long journey home from summer camp.

As families have reunited across the country, parents have taken to social media with photos of the arts and crafts projects that have flooded their homes. From toy cars to jewelry, baked goods, and clothing, proud mothers and fathers have started posting their selfies.
