NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY FOR THIS PROJECT.

WAX HANDS:

A mold of your hand is made in wax, dyed from one solid color up to 6 colors of the rainbow, and add glitter if you like.  Couples enjoy holding hands while children enjoy other signs such as hang loose, peace and I love you. (Must be 4 and older to participate in this activity due to the need of keeping the hand still). NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY FOR THIS PROJECT...UNLESS YOU ARE WITH A SCOUTING GROUP OR BIRTHDAY PARTY.

HAND PRINT FLOWER POTS:

Each child will choose a flower pot to decorate. We will help place the hand prints on the flower pot.  The children can then place thumb prints around the pot or decorate with the use of a paint brush.  Three sizes of flower pots will be available.

CANDY ART/SKITTLE ART:

First choose the design you want made out of candy.  For example: Butterfly, Football, Cardinal, baseball bat and ball, etc... We draw the design on the 11 by 11 inch tile then frame it.  Separate the candy and glue them onto the design forming your own masterpiece. 

 HAND PLAQUES:
