HEART-FULL HANDCRAFTS, K-3rd
Explore and experience ….. so goes being a kid! So we’ve listened to some requests made at the co-op level and designed a class to go hand-in-hand with a child’s love for getting their hands on some new skills and most importantly, realizing how God made each and every one of His children to use their eyes, minds and hands. This class is intentionally geared toward both young boys and young girls. We’ll touch upon some requested skills like how-to sew, knit, crochet and used materials (fabric, wood, items collected from nature, stones, etc.), to get the mind going and put some smiles on the children’s faces. We look forward to having your child join us!
Supply List: scissors, measuring tape (sewing style), pencil, ruler,

Cost: Early Registration = $200/year ($210 after July 7th); + $25 supply fee payable directly to Soni Roach on the first day of class. A late fee of $10.00 will be added after August 15th.
