School’s Out Family Workshop: Fairy Garden Jars

Time:  1:00-2:15 p.m.  
Cost:  Elmhurst Heritage Foundation Members: $10/adult child pair; $5 per additional person; Non-members: $15/adult child pair, $7

Marion Mahony Griffin was a talented artist and developed a strong connection to nature from her childhood playing in the wooded areas north of Chicago. She believed that fairies existed as helpers to humans and that teaching children to believe in fairies would expand their creativity and imagination. This special workshop will encourage participants to use their imagination to create tiny gardens to take home and use to capture fairies. Kids and their caregivers participate together. Appropriate for all ages.
