Children’s Art in the Garden 2017
Come join us at the Enabling Garden for free children’s art and craft activities.
July 18th, Tuesday 2017
6pm – 8pm
1050 1st Ave S, Altoona, IA 50009
Wooden Animals: Pre-cut wood pieces will be ready to assemble into wooden animals. Each child will be able to choose which project to assemble, and then customize it with their own painted design.
Paint and Collage Wooden Houses: Children can decorate pre-cut wooden houses with collage papers and paint.
Fresh Flower Arranging: Children will arrange their own unique bouquets. They can choose from pre-cut flowers, leaves, and seed pods. Jars will be provided, so each child can take his or her own bouquet home in water.
Butterfly Collages: Children can cut and arrange paper to create a butterfly collage.
Sun-Catcher Nature Art: Children can create faux “stained glass” sun-catchers to hang in a window using precut flowers and leaves.
Grass Heads: Children will make grass heads using nylon, soil, and grass seed. Children can take the heads home and give them wacky hair-cuts as the grass “hair” grows.
Paper Crafting: Children can craft paper flowers and decorate a paper box to arrange them in.
Projects are ongoing from 6pm – 8pm. This event is free and open to the public. Hope to see you there!
