If you live on the Northside of Chicago, I have exciting news for you -- the Craftmobile is headed your way.
The Chicago Park District has a lot of great family events and programming, but one of my favorites is the Craftmobile -- a traveling program that brings outdoor craft projects to various neighborhood playlots. Think murals, stained glass window hangings, etc. All materials are provided and the activities are free.
From June 22nd through July 31st, the Craftmobile is going to be making the rounds on the North side of the city. The projects are designed for kids ages 6 and under. All kiddos must be accompanied by an adult.
Visit the Chicago Park District website to find out when these (free! free!) crafts are coming to your neighborhood.
