Create recycled art at Keweenaw Krayons June 30, July 1

MOHAWK -- Kids.... (and parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles) grab your empty gallon water jugs if you have some and come to Keweenaw Krayons in Mohawk from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, June 30, and Thursday, July 1, and learn how to make a GARDEN SCARECROW. (Some water jugs will be available at Keweenaw Krayons for those who need them.)

Also try your hand at other recycled art projects with Margaret Gerhard, Wisconsin's Queen of Recycled Art. Gerhard, a teacher and lifetime recycler, received the 2007 Helfenstein (Helping Stone) Soup Council Environmental Hero Award.*

FREE demos ... and a chance to work on Keweenaw Krayons' Garden Scarecrow. Bring $5 if you want to make a scarecrow for your own garden.

Bartering, Scholarships and Family Discounts available. Pre-registration appreciated! Call 337-4706 or email staff@keweenawkrayons.com.
