San Antonio Children’s Museum-Stampin’ Up! Kids Projects

San Antonio Children's MuseumThis is the sign that greeted Leyla (my granddaughter and assistant for the day) and me at the San Antonio Children's Musem on Saturday as we arrived for our Stampin' Up! Kids Projects workshop.  I was invited to be the Guest Artist for August, and we had a blast with a classroom full of kids from all over, stamping up a storm!

I designed these two projects, a bag tag and a bookmark, with the owl as our symbol of learning for these back-to-school projects appealing to boys and girls at a variety of ages.  I was thrilled that the teenage museum volunteers that were helping out all made the projects in between classes–boys and girls!  So fun!

Stampin' Up! Kids ProjectsThe Guest Artist workshops are included in the cost of the museum admission, but they hand out tickets for Session 1 and Session 2 since seating is limited.  Each session accommodates up to 26 kids plus parents.  We were at full capacity for Session 1!  Session 1 ended and we had 15 minutes to clean up and reorganize, ready for Session 2.  We had a few empty places for the second session, so things were a bit more orderly:), but then we had several families join us as we were cleaning up.  We let them in, and they were thrilled to get in on the cute projects.

I loved how each kid made the project "their own" via different coloring, positioning, etc.  The two favorite steps were the sponging (almost like magic–they loved the way cardstock was transformed through sponging!) and "dressing" the little punched owls.  Adding the little vests, eyes, buttons, etc. were great fun!  All those pieces are part of the Stampin' Up! Owl Builder Punch.

This was a super-fun day as young ones got in on some Stampin' Up! kids projects.  Rubber stamping is fun at any age.  And some of the parents enjoyed this at least as much as the kids:)  Because San Antonio Childrens Museum is in downtown San Antonio, the kids come from near and far.  As Priscilla Prather, arts and music director at the museum, opened each session with welcomes and introductions, she asked how many children were not from San Antonio.  Several hands shot up at each session.  My simple and fun Stampin' Up! kids projects were enjoyed by kids from Arkansas and Wisconsin as well as various parts of Texas and, of course, San Antonio.

Get your kids in on the fun of rubber stamping with Stampin' Up!  It's a very family-friendly activity:)  You can order Stampin' Up! supplies here from my online store anytime:  candystamps.stampinup.net.  If you live in Texas, call me at 210-355-5729 and let's talk about having a private stamping party where I give lessons to you and your friends.  We can party at your place or mine–the choice is yours.  I can't wait to stamp with you and your friends!
