We’ve been thinking of ways to involve families more with our Sustainable Saturday events at the Mackarness Hall and we’ve come up with EcoArt. It’s just a space for the kids who come along to get creative, recycle some unwanted items to create something arty to take home. It also gives you a little bit of time to look round the stalls and grab a cuppa! Click here to see when our next event is on.
We only have a very small team running our events and need your help to make this happen so here’s our wish list below:
1. We need any unwanted crafty stuff that kids can make into other things e.g. card, coloured paper, egg boxes, wobbly eyes, pipe cleaners, sparkly things, ribbon, old containers etc.
2. We need some art equipment – child-safe scissors & left handed scissors, pva glue, pritt stick, poster paint, selotape etc.
3. We need children to come along to the events ! Please spread the link (http://bit.ly/193cE25) to this page on your Facebook & Twitter pages, email friends too. Ask your school to promote it in the newsletter. It will only work if you help (thank you).
4. We need grown up helpers at each event. Our Sustainable Saturdays run from 9am until 12 so if you can spare just one hour to sit at the table that would be great. This just involves keeping the table tidy etc. You are not expected to run an activity, parents are expected to keep an eye on their children and must not leave their kids in the hall. We’re not a childcare option!
If you have anything to donate or can give an hour of your time to help – please email email@example.com or post us a message on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/TTHoniton
