Santa's Workshop

Next weekend, Sunday, December 13 at Larson Gallery, join us for the 3rd Annual Santa's Workshop Event. Santa, Crafts, Cookies, Fun and it's all FREE!

Santa at last year's event

Bring your camera for pictures with Santa. Bring your kids to make some fun crafts. If you don't have kids, bring your parents or your friends or your neighbors and they can make crafts, too. 

tree ornaments made in preparation for the event

There will be cookies to decorate, and eat. There will be crafts to make, but you shouldn't eat them. We will be collecting for Toys for Tots, so bring a new unwrapped toy for a kid in need and you can get some used toys of your own at the Christmas rummage sale.

Rudolph the red-nosed triangle

We have two crafts planned, though there may be a surprise third craft planned by YVCC's student government. The crafts I have planned are popsicle stick ornaments in the form of trees, stars or Rudolph. Kids (or adults) can decorate them however they choose. 

wire stars of various types

We also plan to make wrapped wire star ornaments. I have some prototypes made, but I might tweak the plan a little before the event. These stars are a bit more complicated, but with some help, the kids should be able to do them.

I hope to see lots of people at Larson Gallery on Sunday. Spread the word. The event is free and the last two years we've had lots of fun!
