Don’t you just love when your school hosts a holiday boutique? You send the kiddies in with your hard earned cash and they get to spend an hour of school time shopping for things like velvet rose tipped pens, and plastic coffee mugs? Yeah, me neither.
I was really happy this year when the PTA at my son’s school decided NOT to do the boutique, but opted to have the kids MAKE stuff instead. And they did it after school so the kids wouldn’t be rushed. My son went and loved it. He even got to choose what to make! All week parent volunteers worked the tables–some kids made necklaces, some made bookmarks, others made picture frames. I heard the turnout was great.
Thank you, Cranford, NJ PTA!
