Art Classes & Summer Camps

As an alternative to traditional summer art camps and classes this year, we encourage you to use websites and your local library as resources for art and craft projects for your children.  If online, use search terms like kid's craft projects, paper towel roll crafts, craft stick or popsicle stick crafts, pipe cleaner crafts, etc.  There are hundreds of pages, especially on Pinterest.  In fact, here are some to get you started:

   https://www.kindergartenworksheetsandgames.com/2020/02/a-to-z-of-the-best-popsicle-stick-crafts.html

If you need economical supplies, your local dollar stores usually have craft sections full of items like drawing and construction paper, glue, colored pencils, magic markers, paint sets, craft sticks, googley eyes, stickers, string, glitter and more!  These can be combined with things around your home such as paper plates, paper towel rolls, wrapping and tissue paper, fabric, plastic eating utensils, tin cans (watch for those sharp edges!), orange juice cartons, milk jugs, etc.
