Collaboration Through Craft

Updated: Dec 10, 2020

Hello Gardeners!

With the holidays approaching, the urge to gather is stronger than ever. There is no better time to check in with loved ones, connect with friends, and make the extra effort to let the people in your circle know that you are thinking of them. What better way to do that than with a seasonal craft?



Today we've got a craft that is perfect for all ages - from the youngest of gardeners to the gardeners whose ages are in the triple digits. You can turn this craft into a place setting, a holiday card, or cut it out and add it to your collection of holiday ornaments.



W E A R E M A K I N G F I N G E R P R I N T O R N A M E N T S !



Here is what you'll need:

Paper (ideally cardstock)

Fingerpaint

Tape

Scissors




This is the perfect craft to get everyone in the family involved! It also makes a wonderful holiday card for teachers, janitorial staff, coaches, bus drivers, mail and delivery workers, waste management workers, etc. Give the gift of gratitude and acknowledgement this holiday season! Let the people who are working so hard to keep things going know that you appreciate and support them.



This craft is #PullYourWeedsApproved because it:


✓ Suits all ages! You are never too old to finger paint 🎨


✓ Promotes collaborative creativity. Have the kids work together to create these one-of-a-kind pieces!


✓ Encourages reflection and gratitude. Card making can push us to think of those who we often don't thank enough.
