Its summer and that means kids are home and looking for that well deserved break from the school year.It is a great time to learn new skills in a very fun and relaxed way. My daughter’s friend approached me to teach her children and a few others the art of quilling and I was very happy to oblige.
I conducted a one week camp and started from the basics and had them quill a little box and a card as a finished project. The kids enjoyed the time to tap into their creative side. I also gently directed them to the various resources on the Internet, and they took it and ran with it and created so many things on their own.
There is an old Chinese proverb that says “Learning is a treasure which accompanies its owner everywhere.”, I hope this treasure of quilling is with them throughout their life and they enjoy it and continue to create and pass this joy on to others.
Here are some pictures from the camp and their finished projects.
