Reese Witherspoon Is Starting a Home Summer Camp (and Gwyneth Paltrow Reeeeally Wants to Send Her Kids)

Reese Witherspoon is launching an at-home summer camp, and no one is more excited than Gwyneth Paltrow.

Earlier this week, the Little Fires Everywhere star, 44, asked her Instagram followers for help brainstorming crafts ideas, games and other outdoor activities. Witherspoon explained she’s turning her backyard into a summer camp for her three children—Ava (20), Deacon (16) and Tennessee (7)—in an attempt to shake up their self-isolation routine.

Fans immediately flooded the comments section with words of praise. Even Paltrow joked that her two teenagers—Apple (16) and Moses (14)—are already en route to Witherspoon’s house.

Witherspoon shared a photo of herself wearing a traditional camp counselor’s outfit, which includes shorts, sunglasses, a T-shirt, a sunhat and a green neck scarf. (Pop of color FTW.)

The Big Little Lies star captioned the post, “All the MOMS out there... let’s do this at home summer camp thing! I LOVE camp! I love a slip’n’slide, popsicles at lunch and some friendship bracelets. But my skills are rusty, to say the least. I’m welcoming all craft ideas and backyard games suggestions!”

Paltrow wrote, “SENDING MINE OVER NOW THANKS BYE.” Aggressive, yet relatable.

Seriously, though: Is Camp Witherspoon (working title) accepting applications? And is there an age limit for attendees? Asking for a friend…
