Kidtivities™—Summer Arts and Crafts Projects

If you live near our store in downtown State College, be sure to stop by this summer for some crafty fun! When kids participate in Kidtivities™ at Growing Tree Toys, we provide supplies and personal attention so that each child can create an awesome project such as a plaster pet, green shopping bag, paper bag puppet, sticky mosaic and more!

To register for a Growing Tree Toys Kidtivity™, just call (814) 237-3655 or ask at our store, located on the corner of Beaver Avenue and South Allen Street in State College. The costs for any of the remaining Kidtivity™ sessions this summer run from free to 4 dollars per child! Click to view the full schedule while I highlight a few favorites!

Enviro bag

Kids 3 years and up can get wild while creating Paper Bag Puppets next Wednesday, July 28! Kids decorate colorful paper bags with punch-out shapes and bright stickers to make fabulous animal puppets. And the best part? There’s absolutely no charge for this theatrical mid-day activity!

On Friday, July 30th, kids ages 6 and up can create their own environmentally friendly shopping bags! Every registered child will receive a 14.25” x 15.25” bag to stencil with an eco-conscious design. It’s the perfect Kidtivity™ for kids that want to show their love for the Earth and it only costs 4 dollars to register!

Paper Bag Puppets

Don’t live local to State College? “Hosting” your own Kidtivities™ can be easy! If you have a group of children coming over, you can keep them occupied with a fun group craft that costs little to purchase, but provides an imaginative way to spend an afternoon. For example, the Paper Bag Puppets Kit from Alex features 5 paper bags, making it easy to entertain 5 children at one time – that comes out to about $2 a child! Then, have them put on a play with their puppets for even more entertainment!

Or, any of the First Sticky Mosaics are great for a younger child group activity. Each of these kits features 5 themed templates, making it a great way for 5 children to spend some time doing creative activities together, also at a cost of $2 per child if they each do one template. And the fun doesn’t stop there – we have many art kits that can easily be “split up” to provide a low cost activity for multiple children. Check out our Arts & Crafts for Kids to find your next group activity!

But, if you want to join us in store for summer fun, our Summer Kidtivities™ at Growing Tree Toys take place on certain Wednesdays and Fridays until August 4th. They fill up fast so be sure to register soon by calling (814) 237-3655 or stopping by the store! You can also, check out our Kidtivities schedule on Facebook—become a fan while you’re at it!
