AR – November 15: Performances + Perlers

This week, we’re doing mini performances, 5-minute plays – we’ll use concessions, hair/makeup, a director, music, lights, whatever parts your kids want to play. I thought maybe we could follow a folk tale, like Little Red Riding Hood or a Grimm fairy tale, if everyone wants some guidance. I’m also happy to let them make something …

Time to build your dream world, shoe-box sized. Please bring the items you’ll need to craft a mini-world of your (or your kid’s) choosing.

IH – October 20: Hand Sewing + Baking

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 …
