Third Friday’s are Back!

This popular series meets from 3 to 6:00 pm in the BCA Space in the Old Town Hall, 16 South Road on the 3rd Friday of each month. BCA is glad to welcome Samantha Christian who will be leading these workshops. The workshop is free and open to children and their caregivers. Materials and supplies will be supplied and volunteers will answer questions and help guide projects.

The July project is birdhouse making and painting. There are 15 or so little wooden birdhouses to be decorated, and we will also put out supplies for children to construct their own birdhouses.

For August the project will be pinwheel construction. This is a simple project, but the transformation of a flat piece of paper into something 3D that moves can be mesmerizing for little ones.
