Kids Krafts & Date Nights


Last time I posted here was the list of Thursday Workshops for the rest of the summer. If you are interested in a workshop but cannot attend on the day stated, just contact me and we will work something out.

Kids Krafts

These are Saturday Workshops designed for kids 5-12, but teens and adults are welcome. They run from 1:00 to 3:00 because that is the attention span of most kids.  All workshops include Little Debbie snacks and drinks. Workshops cost $10 unless stated otherwise. That includes bisque, lesson, paints, and snacks.
