Christmas Craft Day

You are receiving this email because you RSVPed to the Christmas Caroling event at Llanfair on Wednesday, December 12th. A few of us thought it would be a great idea to get the kids together beforehand to make cards to give out to the residents. The idea then blossomed into a card and christmas craft making day. Below are the details. Please consider bringing card making supplies (stickers, diecuts, etc) to share with the group or a simple christmas craft with supplies for about 20 kids.

What: Card and Christmas Craft Making Day
When: Friday, December 7th 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM
Where: Meeting room at the Newport Library, 901 East 6th Street, Newport, KY 41071 859-572-5035
Who: Families attending christmas caroling at Llanfair
RSVP: Tina is the organizer, but is out of town till next week, so you can RSVP to Jenna

We will have stations set up for card and ornament making. Feel free to pack your lunch and/or bring snacks with you. Come for the entire time or join us for a short while. We ask that some cards you make be donated for the residents at Llanfair, but you can also make cards to take with you. Ornaments and other crafts are yours to take home.

We'll also be practicing our songs and learning accompaniment using hand bells!

What a great time. I was a bit worried when I got to the library at 10:35 AM and NO ONE else was there, but others arrived quickly and the kids got to work crafting. I love seeing how you can give a 3 year old and a 13 year old the exact same supplies and how they come out with such different results. They made 4 different types of ornaments, snowflakes from coffee filters, and cards galore for the residents of the nursing home!

The one beaded ornament kit that Tina brought with her, Emily and I fell in love with, I had to stop at Hobby Lobby on the way home and get similiar ones for us to play with at home. I can't wait to play with them.
