Lakes Area Homeschool Craft Event
Hey homeschool families, are you interested in a great event where you can mingle with other homeschoolers while your kids create some great craft projects to keep or share with others? Then join the fun at the Lakes Area Homeschool Craft Day on November 30th from 1:00-3:00pm. The event will be held in the Oak Street Christian School gym (in Brainerd).
**Note: You do not have to lead a craft in order to come and make crafts. We need a fair amount of craft leaders to make the event worthwhile, but hope to have many more participants beyond the families involved leading crafts.
Homeschool craft day works as follows. Volunteers (parents, grandparents or older kids) are needed to lead out in one simple craft that does not take a long time to do; please select crafts that children are able to do it easily or with minimal help. The cost charged for each craft should be $1.50 or less. Each individual leading a craft will have their own table set up with needed supplies/equipment/newspaper/etc, including a can or bowl in the center of the table with the price of the craft activity posted (in increments of 25 cents please... 25 cents, 75 cents, $1.00 etc). A completed sample of the project should also be on display. All needed supplies should be supplied by the crafter except the table.
Participants will bring a supply of quarters, a lg box (to put their completed items in and also use as a glue drying location), and a fun attitude. Then kids simply go from table to table doing the crafts desired and putting their payment into the craft leaders can. This is such a fun way for kids to get an assortment of items to give as gifts, use as ornaments/decor, etc. Craft ideas could include anything and do not have to be holiday based. They can be for any holiday, season, or reason. Suggestions might be: refrigerator magnets, ornaments, homemade cards, planting bulb kits, soup/cookie/ cocoa mix in a decorated jar, decorations, picture frames, Bible related crafts, rock painting, themed mugs with goodies inside, decorated candles, recycled cards/crafts,the list is endless. If you want to purchase pre-made craft kits that are under $1 each to make, be sure to check out the Oriental Trading Company catalogs or visit them online at: www.orientaltrading.com - be sure to order early enough to receive your items though!
