Homemade Holidays: Pandemic Edition - Wehr Nature Center


*The event has already taken place on this date: Mon, 12/07/2020
Did you know that crafting helps reduce stress? Concentrating on the task at hand focuses the mind and reduces negative thoughts. Sadly, some of our favorite things have not happened this year due to the pandemic – we won’t let it stop Homemade Holidays! Crafts come ready to assemble and designed for your age group – we have gathered the recycled materials for you! These projects help children develop fine motor skills, self-esteem, focus and creativity by reusing and repurposing objects all while saving more “stuff” from going to the landfill! Depending on your choices, all you may need is a hammer, school glue or a glue stick to complete the project. Deadline to order your crafts – November 15. Pickup craft orders December 4, 5, and 7. Recommended for children aged 5 and older.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.
