Go buggy with crafting sessionsInexpensive classes will give kids the opportunity to have some fun
By: Emily Zimmer, Rosemount Town Pages
Melissa Loch has three daughters. That means when she’s looking for activities she has to multiply the price tag and the time by three. That gets expensive and time consuming.
With that in mind Loch decided she wanted to put together an inexpensive craft event for kids 4 to 12 years old. Her father-in-law, John Loch, who is a member of the Rosemount Area Arts Council, told her about a grant the council was starting to distribute to help people in the community host arts events.
Melissa Loch applied and is the first recipient of a $100 RAAC grant. The grant money will help pay for supplies for her Let’s Go Buggy event being held from 10 a.m. to noon Aug. 16 at the Rosemount Community Center room 215.
During the event kids will have the opportunity to make five bug-themed crafts including dream catchers and key chains. Loch said they aren’t complicated crafts, and even young kids can do them.
“The crafts will be easy but quality,” said Loch.
Loch will host a second crafting session for kids from 10 a.m. to noon Aug. 30 at the community center. While she hasn’t decided what the crafts will be Loch said the session will have a back-to-school theme.
The cost to attend is $8 per child. Loch hopes to get a good response so she can continue to do the classes, possibly on a monthly basis.
“I hope kids have a good time,” Loch said.
To sign up for the craft sessions call Melissa at 952-423-2137 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The class will be limited to 12 kids.
