Gift-making can be a wonderful journey for more than the kids!
Just thinking of the delight of Dad receiving his child’s masterpiece on Father’s Day this coming weekend, brings a smile to the craft “supervisor” as the child glues, paints and creates. TCC’s Little Kidlets Playgroup Coordinator Samantha Neall hit on a winner this week. She developed during the recent Covid lockdown period, toe-tally amazing crafty sock packs for the stuck-at-home families from her groups. Even though the playgroup could not come together to enjoy company and play, they could do something enjoyable at home. This was obviously a great help to the home-schooling parents, with 24 craft packs going out to families across Thurgoona from the TCC, collected as they walked past the collection boxes provided.
“The Facebook advertising generated a wonderful response,” said Samantha. “It was so successful that I had to take the link down after a short time; we had already run out of packs to sell!”
“What would have been our always popular playgroup Father’s Day craft session was changed so they could be made from home.”
“Even though times are tough at the moment, there’s still lots of fun to be had at home, hopefully these packs help create a fun activity for our playgroup members to enjoy.”
If you missed out on a pack, why not try some crafts that have been shared online. There are some surprisingly clever ideas that use items that are already in the house.
Little Kidlets Playgroup runs each NSW school term on Monday and Tuesday mornings
The cost is $5 per family with arts, craft, and messy play for all to enjoy.
