Sunday, January 23

Another beautiful Sunday to be at the market!

This week we used recyclable materials to teach market-goers fun ways to reuse things they already have at home and create fun projects. Using an easy template from the internet, the kids that came by the Information Booth used thick paper shopping bags from various grocery stores to make party hats. We used the art supplies that we've collected over the past months- crayons, markers, feathers, stickers, and secured the hats with twine, tying a bow under each persons chin as they finished decorating their hats.

Next week we'll be celebrating the new year (again) by ringing in the Chinese New Year- The Year of the Rabbit. Come to the Info Booth for fun facts about the new year, and create your own good luck charm.

As always, for everything else Hillcrest Farmers Market related, be sure to visit
