Seekonk Parks and Recreation Offers Crafts Program for Kids and Seniors at New Location
If you are looking for a new, fun activity, Seekonk Parks and Recreation offers arts and crafts programs for children and seniors.
The programs are now held in the community room at the new Seekonk Senior Center, 540 Arcade Ave. They are drop-in programs so families can stop by when their schedule allows.
The craft program for children runs every Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. It is for children 6+ years old and the cost is $3 per hour. There is a new and different craft every week. Some of the past crafts that children have created include no-sew pillows, bookmarks, collages, flower seed and herb planting, pine cone birdfeeders, valentine heart dishes and much more.
A more advanced craft project is offered for ages 12+ on the first Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The cost is based on the project and the upcoming craft is advertised ahead of time on the department’s website. Past projects have included a Halloween wreath, a fall pumpkin floral, a wood snowman, a winter pinecone wreath and a valentine floral. In March, they will be working on a spring wreath.
A craft class is also offered for members of the Senior Center every Monday afternoon from 2:15-4:15 p.m. There is a small fee for participants: $3 for residents and $5 for non-residents.
There are also plans to start an adult craft class once a month. Details will be forthcoming.
