One of my girls' favorite things to do is arts and crafts. If I'm scrapbooking they are scrapbooking. If I make cards, they are next to my elbow using my scraps and making their own cards. When I paint a room...they run the other way. (Can't fool them that it's an artsy thing to do--oh well!)
But we discovered a really cool thing to do here in the Inland Northwest: Painting Pottery. I remember doing this as a little girl. They were figurines and piggy banks and things like that. We didn't have a place to do it where we moved from, but quickly we discovered that there are many places to do it here. And the assortment of things to choose from is so much better! Plus they fire the piece now and make it look really professional!
The location in Spokane Valley is offering fun kids classes. Give them a call to find out more....and we may just see you there!
