Successful kid crafts

I survived the lock in! We had our first-ever PTA lock in at my kids' elementary school tonight. I was in charge of crafts. I punched out hundreds and hundreds of scalloped circles from cheap patterned paper I bought ages ago. I bought lots of glue sticks (really cheap ones that were $2.99 a dozen at Hobby Lobby), and I used up most of my remaining retired Stampin' Up! copper cord for the hanging loops. We had 130 kids at the lock in. I think at least half of them made ornaments with me. Some of the kids really went crazy making several of them. They used up all of the supplies that I brought and had a blast. Several of the girls requested that I start a craft club. Hmm. Interesting idea.

Check out all of these great ornaments made by K-5th graders!

There is a lot of happiness on that tree. It looks like everyone had fun and brought a lot of joy to it.

A kids craft club is very popular here in Australia. (I had 400 kids roll up for the Christmas Carols & crafts) Monthly club is based on an average of 80-90 kids!
My biggest problem is getting boys to come along. I have regularly 3 guys turn up. Though at the Christmas one we probably had 30-40 guys!
