Kids Class: Color, Build & Sew
18.00

We have a special kids class this month! We'll be making a Tubby Wubby and the kit of the month, Flopsy the Elephant, comes with a special color & build set. Flopsy is a DJ so we get to make her turntable! 

The coloring is appropriate for most school-age children. The sewing of the Tubby Wubby could use some adult supervision. We will start the sewing during the class but it will be a project that they will most likely finish at home. Don't worry, parents, the instructions are easy to follow and if they need any help you aren't able to provide, bring them back in and we'll make sure they can finish it! 

Everything needed to complete this project is included in the kit. Other Tubby Wubby animals will be available for purchase that day as well.
