A Magical Childhood

This morning I read an article on Eric Carle's facebook page about what a 4 year old should know. I  want to share a bit from the article as it applies to children of all ages. As we think of going back to school, let us remember childhood is a magical time and using your imagination is so important for developing creativity.

Do It Yourself Craft: Time to Decoupage

We have been having so much fun this summer with our adult craft program DIY!  In June, we learned how to decorate cakes.  In July, we learned to knit.  And now, this coming Wednesday at 2 PM, we will be learning the art of decoupage.  We'll be taking plain boring boxes and other shapes and covering them with beautiful cutouts to make nice little knickknacks and places to store little keepsakes.  Don't worry, all the materials will be provided.  All you need to do is click here to register beforehand.  We'll see you then!
