Freebie Friday: Story Time at Paint Your Wings

Heather Reaves, owner of Paint Your Wings is excited to announce a storytime at the “paint your own pottery” studio in Boone!! The event will be called “Paint Me A Story.” Participants will be read a book, and then paint a piece of pottery that is related to the book!

paint-your-wingsPaint Me a Story will start in September and happen every Tuesday at 10am. The cost is $11 per child and includes the piece, a snack, and a coffee for parents.  This would be really great for prechool kids and early elementary homeschoolers!  My middle daughter is all about arts and crafts, and I know this would make reading so meaningful for her!

We have made some great pieces for the kids, the grandparents, and for me at Paint Your Wings! They have their own personalized cereal/ice cream/vegetable bowls, and mugs out of which they will actually drink water!  I have a super cool travel coffee mug with a lid, and the grandparents have a platter with a sunflower, created with the kids’ handprints! I’m trying to find the photos I took of them, I’ll add them if I find them!
