Kid’s Nature Arts & Crafts: Nature Weaving with Ashley Hoffman

October 17 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

At Fox Haven, we recognize that art is a vitally important learning tool for children, whether they are learning in public school or at home. With this in mind, we would like to provide the opportunity for your kids to explore nature, creativity, and self-expression, all while maintaining a safe social distance. Kids will love this fun loom-making craft that is super easy to make for kids of all ages! We’ll start off by taking a walk in nature collecting flowers and leaves along the way. Then, we’ll head into the dairy parlor classroom to create a loom using the nature we collected! Each child will have the chance to let their creative mind run wild as they weave plants into their loom.

*To maintain proper social distance, class will be limited to 6 participants (1 parent is welcome to stay for the duration of class).

* Each child will receive their own set of sanitized supplies to use during class

*This class is best suited for children between the ages of 5-9

About LandBack Tax
Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.

The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.
