What to bring

  • A nutritious and delicious lunch.
  • A refillable water bottle.
  • A snack (we will provide, a serving of popcorn or crackers, but if you have any allergies concerns or an especially hungry child, you might want to pack a snack).
  • Comfortable clothes that can get dirty.
  • Closed toed shoes (we work with some heavy, hot, or sharp items in the workshop). We strive to send kids home with as many toes as they came with.
