Summer Craft School

Children felting with their feet. Great fun!

Just finished a week of 'Summer Craft School'. Even though we were very late to announce the event, we had between 10 and 14 children coming each day. Every day we made different craft, such as wet-felting, mosaic pots, clay modelling and tie dyed t-shirts.
Every day I told the story about 'The Five Goats' and on the last day the children helped make the puppets for the puppet-show that we performed for the parents who were invited to finished of our craft week.

As it was my first time leading it, I have to admit that some activities worked better than other. But considering working with a mixed age group of children, ranging between 3 till nearly 7 years old, it all worked out very nicely.

Thank you all children for a wonderful week and a big thank you to all parents who are already requesting another holiday-club. I will definitely be back with more craft! Last but not least a HUGE thank you to Emma for all your help and support.
