December Home school- Christmas Workshop $15.00 per child

 

Weekdays Monday - Thursday
 
Edible Cabin Kit
Board to place cabin on, pre-cut graham crackers, frosting, limited candy. (hot chocolate for parent and child with ham sandwich).  We will have people to help you build your cabin.  You will take your Cabin with you.
 
We encourage you to bring candy you feel your child might want to use.  While shopping, look for gummy bears, fish for a lake, etc... Anything they may want to have on, in, or around their cabin.

Goal For This Workshop - To teach the child to be creative and flexible.
Examples: Ice cream cone can be a tree, cookies become tractors or people. Use your imagination. Think beyond what you see. We find this will become a yearly tradition with many families as the child becomes excited at what they can make from all kinds of items. Food is fun.
