- Kumihimo—simple braiding technique on a handmade cardboard disc. Need to be able to count to 3.
- Paper making—use a blender to make slurry to pour into a cookie cutter that is on a screen. Ages 3 and up.
- Felted butterfly—carded, dyed fleece in a plastic bag with soapy water is patted and patted until the fleece is felted. Then, using a pipe cleaner, it is turned into a butterfly. Ages 3 and up.
