SUMMER CRAFT CLASSES - ALL LOCATIONS


CREATE YOUR OWN MEMORY STONES
TUESDAY, JULY 9TH, 11:00AM & 2:00PM - FOR ALL AGES

Decorate a memory stone from the bottom up! Design, then squish and squeeze the mixture, and pour to cast. Take home a garden keepsake that everyone will stop and admire!

SHRINKABLE CREATIONS
THURSDAY, JULY 11TH, 2:00PM - AGES 6+

The incredible shrinking artwork! Color in a design, cut it out, and bake it down to mini size. String it as a bracelet or necklace or hang it in the window as a sun-catcher! **NOTE: You can take home your art project for baking as we unfortunately don't have ovens in our locations. (Though if we did, we'd certainly be swimming in baked goods.)

TOOLING AROUND
TUESDAY, JULY 16TH, 2:00PM - AGES 5+

Make it and take it! Glue together pre-cut wooden pieces to form a sturdy toolbox. Then paint it in your own style. Great for carrying around crafts, tools, and special toys.

ONE SHAPE - ENDLESS BUILDING
THURSDAY, JULY 18TH, 2:00PM - AGES 2+

Don't be puzzled by one shape! Mix and match interlocking pieces in any direction for a 2D mosaic or 3D design.

THINKING PUTTY WORKSHOP
TUESDAY, JULY 23RD, 2:00PM - AGES 5+

Do you think Thinking Putty just comes in certain colors? Not here? Mix and match colors to create your own - even customize its carrying tin. Then squeeze, stretch, and bounce it all day long!

MICRO-MINI CLAY SCULPTURES
THURSDAY, JULY 25TH, 2:00PM - AGES 6+

Aww, cute! Teeny, tiny clay kits make teeny, tiny sweet and savory pretend snacks. A little something for everyone's taste!

MAKE YOUR OWN TRADING CARDS
TUESDAY, JULY 30TH, 2:00PM - AGES 6+

Show and trade cards of your favorite things! Make cards for your own pet, hero, or other collections by drawing on or adding stickers to pre-cut blank cards. Store them in a foil case which you can also decorate.

DIG IT UP DINOS
THURSDAY, AUGUST 1ST, 2:00PM - AGES 4+

Which dino wil you get? Use a special plastic tool to dig a dinosaur out of its clay. Match it to the ID cards and see who you found!
