Re: Hour-long family projects needed. . .

How about rock painting with smooth river rock type rocks? Turn rocks into
ladybugs, spiders, frogs etc. to place around gardens.  Works with kids of

>Hi, Folks!
>St. John's United Church of Christ usually has these little craft sessions

>This year, the Christian Education group decided to do one for Eco-Justice

>What we are looking for is a variety of crafts that can be completed in an

>So far, Christian Education and I have come up with the following:
>Planting marigold seeds in peat pots (so kids can plant them in their own
>yards when they get big -- gosh, did we get marigold seeds this year! ;-))
>Painting bird feeders
>As you can see, we need serious help!  What types of craft things could

>Thanks for the help -- gosh, do I need it! ;-0
