In Felt Crafts (pictured above) students made felt pouches, wall hangings, pencil toppers, magnets, and more!


In Beads and Other Cool Materials (pictured above) students were given the opportunity to create lots of cool things using all kinds of fun materials. 


In Ooey Gooey (pictured above) students were able to get their hands dirty and express their inner artist.  They made different kinds of play dough and had fun creating with it!
