Kids Crafting

Keeping Kids Entertained During COVID-19 School Break – Join us for 3 weeks of free kids crafting!

Join us every Tuesday and Thursday at 2:00 pm EST for the next three weeks starting on March 17, 2020 for fun online live crafting tutorials. I will list the schedule below with all the materials needed. There will be many alternate item ideas that can be used so you don’t have to run out to the store for each craft. The point is to try and use what you have at home already so you can stay home and healthy! If you don’t have the items suggested, get creative with what you do have.

The purpose of this is solely to help ease the tension that some of our children may be feeling right now and give them a fun interactive escape from the news and talk of the illnesses surrounding us. This is geared towards children ages 5-12, but parental discretion must be applied as you know your child better then anyone else. Small children may need assistance.

All live tutorials will take place on my Facebook page Kristy’s Craft Room
