A few weeks ago KidCreate Studio in Eden Prairie invited a few bloggers and their children to come get to know them, hang out with them and make a Thanksgiving craft. Obviously Thanksgiving is over so I’m a little late writing about all the fun we had, but I’m sharing anyway because KidCreate Studio has some awesome Christmas crafts in their schedule right now.
One of the first things you’ll notice when you enter KidCreate Studio (besides all the artwork) is their birds, Arty and Crafty. They added some fun with their chirping throughout our creation time.
The kids started in a circle on the mats and talked about what they were thankful for as well as learned the rules of the studio. From that point on, us parents could be as little or as much involved as we wanted. Most of us decided to help out a little because we were there. You can certainly drop off your kids and let the staff do all the work though.
Our craft was a clay turkey. The staff walked the children through each individual step and paused when someone needed a little extra help.
I’m amazed at how good the staff was with the kids, how they kept them focused, met each child’s individual needs, and how they were able to “rein in” the ones who got off track or distracted.
How cute is TJ’s turkey that she made??
This kids were proud to show off their finished creations…
KidCreate Studio has art classes for ages 18 months through 12 years. They offer weekly classes, camps, workshops, homeschool classes, private parties, parent night-out classes, and on-the-go studio classes (they bring the studio to you!). In addition, KidCreate Studio makes the perfect place to host a birthday party as they customize the party to reflect the birthday child’s interests. They can even match the art project to the party’s theme!
