Projects for kids

Looking for something to do while you’re at home?  Here’s a few things we thought were pretty neat.  If you don’t have all the supplies needed see how creative you can be and use something you have around your house.  If you have a parent willing to help, see if you can make what you need.  Send us your pictures!  Send us your ideas!  Let’s do this together!

Send all pictures and ideas to Megan at coordinator@josephy.org.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
