Going on a Bear Hunt
Mr. & Mrs. Turner
Let's read the book "We're Going on a Bear Hunt," and then do activities and make crafts based on the story.
Handbells for Beginners
Let's ring bells together to make beautiful music. With the assistance of a handbell app, you'll discover which bells make which notes and learn how to play a song together. In addition, we’ll rock out to some play-along songs using boomwhackers! Experience in note-reading is not required, so come and give it a try!
Leis and Wristbands
Let's learn how to weave amazing leis out of ribbons and/or make wristbands with beads! Each student will design and create something unique to take home.
Let's learn basic woodworking, including skills like design, sanding and sawing. We will each make a unique wooden cross to take home!
(Ages 12-High School)
Let's choose a favorite quote, Bible verse or important word and learn how to write it in an artistic way with modern calligraphy. We will make cards or something you can frame later!
Under the Microscope
Let's jump into the exciting world of Microscopy. After discussing the history of microscopes and learning about some different types, we will make some samples and discover the beautiful world on the other side of the eyepiece!
