Stylish, functional accessories aren’t just for adults, kids love them too. And they’re even more fun when you make them yourself! Create earbud holders, keychains, friendship bracelets and more in our latest KidJAM workshop, where children can explore art mediums, learn new skills and let their imaginations run wild, all while making their own unique projects. What a fun way to spend a Saturday morning!
May’s KidJAM is all about creating accessories!
In 1.5 hours kids will learn:
How to Make Cool Bracelets and Earbud Holders out of Leather and Felt
How to Make Friendship Bracelets
Who can attend: Curious kids from 6 to 12 years old
What you will learn: Fun ways to create useful accessories out of leather, felt and thread using a variety of fun tools
We’ve got everything you need, including a colorful selection of materials and kid-friendly tools. Our trained JamMasters will guide each child through the crafting process with fun, easy to follow instruction and helpful feedback
There are many reasons why crafting is an important medium for kids: Through the use of tools children develop fine motor skills, counting supplies helps with math skills, and experimenting with materials is an introduction to science. But even more so, youngsters feel good while making something, experience a sense of accomplishment, and gain a new form of self-confidence.
About the Host
KidJAMS are hosted by CraftJam, a fun-loving, beginner-welcoming team of teachers hosting dozens of different hands-on workshops around New York City. Due to popular demand, we are now expanding our workshop offerings to accommodate kids of all ages!
For these events, we are partnering with Made by We, a bold new community space for creators, entrepreneurs, and business leaders in the Flatiron District of NYC. Part community hub, workspace, and retail experience, Made by We is a reimagined town hall for today—a place that brings together people, business, and culture. The space features a Bluestone Lane café as well as a storefront curated with products made by WeWork members.
Your kids can craft while you have brunch and drink (a complimentary!) coffee.
This is not a drop-off event. Caregivers are required to stay on premises for the entirety of the event. Complimentary coffee and WiFi will be provided by Made by We for all caregivers in attendance.
