Girl Scout Cadette Norah Carver is teaming up with the North East Arts Council by providing an opportunity for kids to be creative during the first few weeks of summer.
Carver will be creating and distributing art packages (free of charge) to kids in the North East community to help earn her Silver Award for Girl Scouts.
“As a Girl Scout, I have already earned my bronze award (a very high award) and many other badges including first aid and camping,” Carver said. I really want to earn the Silver Award because I like helping out the community and I knew it would be a fun journey.”
Beginning on the June 18, Carver will hand out weekly arts and crafting kits at the North East Arts Council and provide a video link to go with the projects.
Parents must sign their children up in advance by June 12, if they are interested.
There will be different projects each week for different age levels ranging from ages 5 to 9 and 10 to 13.
“Older kids are welcome to join in, however, the projects may be geared toward a younger audience,” Carver said. “These projects will be fun and easy enough for children to complete on their own. I want these kids to have a lot of fun with the kits, it is kind of a play off of Picnic in the Park since that has been canceled this year.”
Families will be encouraged to send pictures of the completed projects throughout the summer to be posted on social media.
To sign up, email email@example.com with child’s name, age and gender.
Instructions on available pickup times and video links will be provided through email after registration.
“I would like to thank everyone for supporting me in my effort to obtain the Girl Scout Silver Award, and I am excited to see how this goes,” Carver said.
