Mr. and Mrs. Pumpkin

Every Saturday morning our local Michael’s (The Arts and Crafts Store) has a program called Kid’s club. Children aged 5-12 are welcomed to come and do a different craft with them every Saturday morning from 10am-Noon. It costs $2 and they have a different craft each week. Two weeks ago they had these lovely pumpkins to decorate (these were not kids club though, they were another special one-time event the same day). The local store also lets me bring my three year old as long as I can keep an eye on her and thank goodness for that because she has to do EVERYTHING her big sister is doing. Anyhow, last week they decorated dragonflies (not real ones of course) which we didn’t make it to. This week they are doing leather bracelets. I don’t know if this is the same for every Michael’s nationwide but you can visit their website, sign up with them and then check out your events for your local store. The girls love it, it’s fairly inexpensive and they give you so many different things to utilize. For these pumpkins my girls used model magic, paint pens, pipe cleaners, sharpies, glitter glue, etc… It’s lots of fun!
