Hi all
Need a few ideas ... I have been asked to run craft sessions for some of the mums at my daughters school as part of adult learning..
I am looking for simple ideas that can be done or taught in a couple of hours..

So far we have:
Card making/decoupage
Small cross stitch project
One Hour Scarf (knitted or crochet)
Possibly paper weaving..

Any other suggestions?

Glass and ceramic painting
small patchwork project - say a cushion cover
Christmas decorations - say using pinecones sprayed gold or decorating polystyrene balls

oh well, half way there then

what about decorating a picture frame? Ikea sell small cheap ones in packs and they can be decorated by painting, decoupage, mosaic, shells etc & then varnishing - we did this with kids for a Funday stall at my daughter's junior school - it was popular.

Or making clocks - using a picture stuck onto hardboard, or old records - the clock mechanism & hands are quite cheap I think & you only need to pierce a hole....

Make a book?

Depending on age of children, "we're going on a bear hunt' is good. they can use sticks, for the woods bit, clay for the mud or paint or somehting... i did this at the library with dds and they loved it...

or get them to 'write a book' an make it themselves...
