Although many of us have a few talents up our sleeve, we're no Martha Stewart. Some are amazing with a sewing machine, while others can do magical things with a paintbrush. Try hosting a co-op to make the most of the skills that your friends and family have and teach kids all sorts of creative wonders under one roof!
Melody Moore and Ginny Morris, along with the help of a Grandma or two, wanted to bring their kids together in the name of crafting! The children in attendance were able to make scrap books from file folders, their own personal pillowcases (complete with hemmed edges!) and next on the agenda is cooking and photography.
Children can rotate through the spaces as their projects are completed and each parent, friend or family member gets a chance to instill their learned life skills into the kids! Sometimes you don't have to be a super parent, you just have to be willing to pool your resources.
It's a great idea, especially on those hot or rainy days where retreating indoors is your only form of relief and a great way to pack as much into the end of the summer!
