The theme was Where the Wild Things Are. I thought sewing project was too difficult for my 6 yo but the other 3 were wonderful!

As always, fantastic craft ideas. My daughter painted a bee, made a bug catcher necklace, shells on the beach, and a wind chime.

Absolutely loved every minute of it. I brought my daughter and her friend both are 6. The volunteers guided them step by step in very caring and friendly manner. This is our second season. Hope to attend all the sessions.
