Vacation Jar Workshop

Many of my customers took some amazing vacations this Summer, so I thought it’d be fun to offer a Vacation Jar Workshop to help the kids memorialize their trips. I only had one child sign up, which was fine with me. I was able to really give R my full attention and help him create something he was very proud of.

First we evaluated what we had to work with. I interviewed R about his trip to Maui so I could help him narrow his choices.

I knew beforehand that R was bringing tokens from Hawaii, so I gathered some more materials for him to use like sand, Hawaiian print fabric, a variety of papers, drift wood, etc. We talked about different options he had, made some decisions about composition and then got to work.

After some finishing touches, the jar was complete. R immediately walked over to show his Dad, who lit up with surprise when he saw the memento.  Here’s a closeup of the jar>>

All materials, including the fancy jar,  were included in the workshop price of only $10. Not too shabby! To find out more about upcoming workshops, go here:

OH, and tried to get my 4 yo son to work on a nature jar with me, but he decided to do this instead…

It was more fun for A to place scissors in jars & hide them under easels. The End.
