What Happens at this 2-Day Kid's Camp?

Day 1

In the story of ‘The Grinch Who Stole Christmas’, the Grinch is annoyed by the noise from the feasting and celebrating of the townspeople. We discuss different types of feelings we can have, including those that make us feel uncomfortable like frustration and jealousy, as well as how we can cope with them.

After that, your child will design the face of her own Grinch bag! We will learn about different fabrics and prepare the bag-making materials together.

Day 2

We start the day with another story about different types of feelings that we experience. Then, we roll up our sleeves and learn about how to use a sewing machine!

Your child will learn how to safely operate the machine and how to connect the parts of the bag, including how to hand stitch a button (which is a useful skill even in adulthood!) We end the session with a mini photoshoot of your child with her bag for her to take home.
