Hiho Batik will be hosting a 5-week Stories & Crafts series for toddlers and parents starting this Thursday July 18 at 10:45 a.m. Haley Ferber– who runs the in-store “Make Your Own” workshops– will lead the event, which she describes as “a hands on class where moms, dads, and/or babysitters and nannys are guided through a craft with their toddlers based on a story.”
Here’s the full lineup:
July 18: A Day at the Beach
Decorate beach-themed picture frames using watercolor paint, glue, and sand.
July 25: Squishy Turtle and Friends
Make turtles out of paper bowls, using paint and stamps for the shells.
August 1: I Dreamt I Was a Dinosaur
Make and paint dinosaur fossils using salt dough, finger paint, and plastic dinosaurs.
August 8: Color Zoo
Use paper bags to create an animal hand puppet by gluing different shapes together.
August 15: In The Garden
Decorate flower pots using watercolor paint and stamps, and then make coffee filter flowers to plant in them.
Classes are held at Hiho Batik (184 Fifth Avenue) from 10:45 to 11:30, and cost $75 for the full five weeks. They are happy to pro-rate for families who can’t attend every class. To reserve a spot, call (718) 622-4446 or email email@example.com
