The past 2 months have had me dealing with the paperwork of our 4-H Club which frankly, is not something I enjoy but has to be done.
Being the project leader for Mini Members (age 5-8) is what I really enjoy. Finding a project that appeals to boys and girls of this age can be a challenge, but I hit the nail on the head this year.
Standing Bear's Trading Post while doing a search online for leather crafts. We have a set of leather stamps and mallets that I had never used and thought it might be fun.
I contacted Sandi began to ask questions...lots of questions. Every one was immediately answered and suggestions made. I settled on wristbands for the kids to decorate and ordered a set of letters as well.
I could not be more happy with the service of this small business.
Lollipop Pop helped with the kids as did an older sister of a mini...I have 12 kiddos in this project so it is always a challenge to keep them focused.
This was perfect!
Once I explained the process of preparing the leather, I let the kids have fun and use their creativity.
Some chose to color and oil their wristbands and others did not.
