Fall Art Boxes – fall craft for kids

Summer art camp boxes were so popular we’ve decided to offer Fall Art Boxes! The box contains supplies for two fall-themed art projects, including the cute collage (picture here) by Judi Young. Projects are supported by fun instructional videos created by teachers. Designed for children in grades 1-6. Basic art supplies from home is all that’s needed (scissors, crayons, glue, etc).

Only $20 each! Fall Art Boxes will be available starting October 5 through October 31, (or while supplies last) and can be preordered now!  Boxes can be paid for online and picked up at the museum or shipped for an extra charge.

Art boxes will also be available for purchase in our museum gift shop. Museum hours starting October 1st, Monday-Friday 10-5, Saturday & Sunday 1-4, 614-486-4402.

Lets Play Sculptionary!
At summer camp each year I make lots of playdough. As a lunchtime activity we use it to play Sculptionary! Making play dough is simple and fun! Check Pinterest for lots of different recipes, depending on what ingredients you have on hand. Click Here for a recipe!
We play Sculptionary by giving each child a small piece of playdough. One person holds up flash cards with words of objects to sculpt like, toothbrush, flower, hat, etc. Another person, who doesn’t know the word on the flash card, tries to guess. Of course this version involves a lot of people, at home with less people you’ll have to be creative in playing this game. Maybe you play the game remotely with family or friends. Be creative and have fun! Send me photos of things you sculpt or other arts and crafts you’re doing from home and we’ll share them on Instagram and Facebook to inspire others!

Be well & stay creative!
