Who Should Attend

This is an interactive program for all ages – invite your grandparents or grandchildren to participate together with you – even from a distance! This is a great way to connect and feel a little bit closer. Participate as an individual or as a family.

How to Prepare for this Experience

Start collecting. Create energy in your household about the experience and watch your mind get creative. The more stuff we’ll have around, the easier those creative ideas will come to us.

Anything can be useful. Here are some examples:

Old un-needed bottle tops, buttons, screws, stickers, pins, old small toys, little figures, combs, hairpins, feathers, old computer parts, any plastic toys for young children, screws, nails, leaves, branches and pebbles from the garden etc.

The more stuff on the table, the more opportunity and excitement you’ll generate.

Additional details about suggested supplies available upon registration.
