* Please Note: Always supervise young children when working with crafts. We don't use small objects that are choking hazards, but even crayons, markers and glue stick caps can be choking hazards. Remove caps and place out of children's reach. Only use one glue stick per adult, and watch child while they are using it. We us construction paper for all foam crafts. Unless children are at least 4 years old, do not use foam ( they could tear off pieces and eat it, even after they leave the class. At least paper is not as bulky if they eat that).
