The Craft Factory

Wouldn’t Grandma like a picture in a frame that your little elves decorated all by themselves? For $12, you can choose one craft base (bird houses, crowns, alphabet letters, ornaments, picture frames, trinket boxes, etc.) and decorate away with all the provided materials. Attend any time during their drop-in hours, or take advantage of the two-for-one craft special for grandparents and grandchildren crafting together for Grandparents Day on December 27th. First-time crafters get a $2 discount. Check out their drop-in hours Thurs., Fri. and Sat. on their website for details.
