Handmade for the Holidays- Family Edition

November 18, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The gifts made with love are the most appreciated of all. That’s why Handmade for the Holidays is one of our favorite ways to enter the holiday season. Skip the mall lines and join us for a cozy day of merriment and gift making. Children of all ages are invited to craft seasonal creations including:

  • Wooden Snowmen
  • Hand-stamped Gift Tags
  • Wood Working
  • Snowman’s Paradise- Hot Cocoa Mug craft
  • Wax-dipped Fire Starters 
  • Watercolor Snowflake Painting
  • Pinecone Penguin Ornaments
  • Better Together Button Making
  • Hand Woven Mug Rugs
  • Outpost Natural Foods Treat Jars (Huge thanks to our friends at Outpost Natural Foods Cooperative for providing wholesome ingredients for this project!)

Don’t miss local author, Barbara Joosse, who will be reading her newest book, “Better Together.” If you’d like, purchase the book today with your registration and in the comment box let the author know what personal message you’d like her to write to your young reader! You’ll receive your hand-signed and messaged copy at the event!

Each child can make and take home one project per station. Hot chocolate, coffee and popcorn will be served! Don’t miss this opportunity for your kids to make some amazing handmade gifts from the heart and to get into the true spirit of the holiday season!

This program is extremely popular each year and is likely to fill fast, so pre-registration is both required and encouraged as soon as possible. Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult. 


Riveredge and Outpost Members: $20/child (12&under)

Non-Members: $25/child (12&under)

Adults are free!

Cancellation Policy: Registrant will be refunded 75% of registration fee if cancellation occurs up to 7 days (1 week) before the program.  Any cancellations within 7 days of the program will not be refunded unless the program is cancelled by Riveredge staff.



P.S. Psssssst, adults- wouldn’t it be nice if you had your very own Handmade? We thought so too! Introducing the 2nd Annual Handmade BY ADULTS on November 12! Skip the crowds and join us for a day of creativity and merriment! Adults are invited to cozy up and settle into an afternoon of holiday gift making.
