This holiday season fill your home and your gift list with creative, hand-made seasonal crafts. Join the San Bernardino County Museum’s Education Division on Saturday, December 14 for a Holiday Craft Social from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and participate in a range of projects, with something for every member of the family. The activities are suitable for ages 3 and up. The cost is $5 per person in addition to museum general admission.
“Take time from your busy holiday preparations to relax, create and make memories together. One price gets you everything,” said Jolene Redvale, the museum’s curator of education. “Move from room to room at the museum to make a variety of crafts including ornaments, gift tags, wreaths, table decorations, and more.”
Crafts range from simple to complex, individual creations to group projects, with holiday and seasonal themes. Every participant can select among 8 to 10 holiday crafts—or can do them all. Families can make matching sets of ornaments and a welcome wreath for the home. Create a trio of ornaments for your tree or a friend’s tree, or maybe grandma’s tree! There is no limit to the fun and creativity you can have.
“Bring some friends and spend the afternoon creating holiday decorations and gifts,” said Redvale. “Our range of projects will challenge and inspire. We’ll have plenty of materials to help you to match your own décor or to bring in some new colors and styles to brighten things up.”
