The cost is only $2.00 for 2 hour of fun crafting per person.  The program is currently open for online enrollment and ends August 2, 2014.

Each week, the craft class takes a trip using our imagination to a new museum.  On the schedule this week is the Perot Museum of Nature and Science located in Dallas, Texas. Students will be making an album project called "Create-A-Constellation" and a destination project called "Space & Planets.  In the picture above, you can see last weeks project modeled after the "Pima Air & Space Museum".

Museums that will be featured:
The Field Museum - Chicago, Illinois
Georgia Aquarium - Atlanta, Georgia
Pima Air & Space Museum - Tucson, Arizona (JULY 7)
Perot Museum of Nature and Science - Dallas, Texas
Denver Art Museum - Denver, Colorado
The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology - New York, New York
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts - Montreal, Quebec (Final week)

Each class will share a Destination project and an album project. Additionally, there is another project recommended as an at home project to keep the kids engaged.

We attended last weeks class and everyone had fun. My kids were able to make the project by themselves and enjoyed the process.  I did have to reserve the class a week in advance to secure my spot.  Space is limited however try other stores in your area if you run into booking issues.  Want to enroll you kids in these great Summer Crafts?  Click on the link below.
