Christmas Craft Day ’09, A Success

I want to start with a huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out to this year’s Christmas craft day. I also wanted to thank the many different people and groups who retweeted the message and spread the word.

I’m happy to say that we had more than twenty people come out including a surprise visit from Santa Clause!


There were supplies to make cards, boxes, paper snowflakes, magnets, snowman poop, styrofoam ornaments, snow globes, gift bags, penguins, partially eaten gingerbread men, and glass ornaments. It was great to see the creativity flow again this year!


I would love to get some feedback from those of you that attended! What was good? Bad? What did you and/or your kids enjoy? Is there anything you’d change or something you’d miss if it didn’t come back? Let me hear it! Good or bad, comment below or follow me on Twitter here.

For those of you interested in donating here is the button one last time. Please use the email sharon [dot] bowerman [at] gmail [dot] com.

Here are a few more pictures from the day:

Sharon, we had an AWESOME time! Thanks so much for your support and generosity! And for stepping in as official craft helper with Josh so I could make sure Angela did not knock over all the computers in the place!

Josh brought two of his projects to school for “show and share.”

We hope you do it again next year, we will tell our friends!

Big holiday hugs,



My girls had a great time. Thanks a bunch for helping my older daughter with her crafts. She was very excited to share her creations with her mom later in the day.

Both girls we very excited to see Santa.

After we left, my girls were mostly interested in eating all the snowman poop they collected. We had to step in, but it was still a fun time,
Thanks for organizing this!
