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.
