Free Summer Upcycled Kid Crafts Program
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jennifer DeSena and Council Member Mariann Dalimonte are proud to be hosting an Upcycled Kids Craft program with Cassigns of Port Washington for children ages 3 to 10 this summer. The upcycling crafts will reclaim old materials and turn them into something new and give them a new life.
“The Upcycled Kids Craft program offers kids the opportunity to participate in a fun craft program, while simultaneously learning about ways to reclaim old materials and upcycle them to protect and preserve our environment,” Town Supervisor DeSena said. “The Town is delighted to offer this program to our residents once again. There’s no better way to learn than by having fun while doing so!”
“I am so happy to once again partner with Cassign and owner Melanie Cassens for the second year in a row to host these fun and educational upcycle craft classes for our children,” said Council Member Mariann Dalimonte. “This helps them explore their imagination and creativity while instilling the importance of sustainability.”
Children can attend the classes on Wednesday, July 12, July 19, and August 9, at 10 a.m. at Blumenfeld Park (Main Street, Port Washington). The classes are FREE and open to North Hempstead residents only. Guardians must be in attendance.
