We’re pleased to announce this year’s children’s activities. The schedule is being worked on and we will update the website when that is available.
As always, we are looking for volunteers to assist with supervising and facilitating these activities. Please consider joining the Youth Committee’s Facebook group, ECT Kid’s Parent Volunteers to get involved. You may also reach out to Caryn MacLuan at firstname.lastname@example.org or by messaging her on Facebook.
Leather Working with Rune Stamps (facilitated by Amanda Leigh-Hawkins)
We can practice stamping runes into leather. Then make a wrist band with your choice of runes on it. For an additional fee for supplies, older participants might be able to make an arm bracer or belt.
*Activity is for children over the age of 6.
Movie Night: “Willow” (facilitated by Trisha Basford)
Willow, a small farmer/apprentice magician, meets Madmartigan, a great swordsman, and together they journey through a war-torn land of magic and monsters, to save a baby princess from death at the hands of an evil queen.
The movie is rated PG. For those who aren’t familiar with the movie, check out the details in the parent’s guide to determine if this movie would be appropriate for your child: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096446/parentalguide.
