Join Just Creations on Saturday July 28 12PM-4PM for their annual Passport Adventure.
This free event is for elementary aged children 5-12 and features craft projects from around the world.
Children will travel throughout the store to stations representing regions of the world including Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
As children travel, they will create art projects and learn about the different cultures.
Their passports will be stamped at each station.
Art & craft projects include: Printmaking with African Adinkra stamps, bead necklaces from Vietnam, make your own worry doll from Latin America, and a scavenger hunt!
All art & craft projects will be run by local artists and volunteers and can be taken home by participants.
