Pretty Sneaky, Sis

The fall chill has you feeling downright frisky. Surreptitiously slipping squash into those morning muffins without your kiddies knowing? Very clever.

Continue your cunning ways by opting for Beehive Co-Op’s Crafty Party, perfect for kids ages 5 to 15.

Choose from sewing, clay sculpting, knitting, crocheting, jewelry making, or a paper project for groups of up to fifteen children. Each guest completes a craft project under expert instruction. And don’t worry about goodie bags: Everyone leaves with his or her creation beautifully wrapped. All you have to bring is the cake.

A no mess, no fuss affair? Now that’s crafty.
