Time to strengthen our finger muscles. Sewing by hand is a challenge for any age, but it’s also fun to bring a drawn character to life, make a sock puppet, or to make the apples the play kitchen set is missing so the stuffies can enjoy autumn. I have some string and lots of buttons anyone can use. Let’s bring extra fabric and some larger needles, and let them decide what to create!
I also have a stack of fall lacing cards, if your kids aren’t used to the motions of sewing. If anyone wants to do their mending at this session, feel free to bring a stack.
Let’s do some baking! I have a kid-friendly pumpkin cookie recipe we can assemble onsite – and it makes approximately a billion drop cookies with drizzled maple icing. I’ll also bring a box of gf brownie mix + hopefully everyone can participate. We’ll aim to prep the baked goods to be ready around 2 o’clock, in time for tea. If your kid wants to bake something else, feel free to bring it.
