I'm planning six classes for a local Summer craft club. The biggest challenge is that we have very little money in which to pull this off, and I really want these children to be able to make items they will enjoy and wish to keep. This project fits perfectly.
I found a bunch of bent Badminton rackets at a garage sale. I explained what I would be using them for and the person at the sale gave me a great deal. I also posted on Freecycle for 2x6 wood and rackets and managed to scrape enough items together for this project to become a reality.
I'm going to have all the bees cut out and sanded and all the rackets cut prior to the crafting day. The children will be able to paint and spray and assemble.
