Fun for Youth at the Folklife Fair

KIDS FLUFF BOOTH

Plan to make time for family activities at the "Kids Fluff" booth at the Folklife Fair in Hailey.   Bring your children so they can explore fiber arts at their own level.  Activities include woolly crafts, free activities like face painting, a "lamb stand in" photo booth or getting your very own balloon animal.  Join us!  No pre-registration is required so you can just show up and enjoy. (Parents of children age seven and under are asked to stay with their children during the scheduled classes.)
Special thanks to Kathi Kimball, 4H leader and staff expert from the University of Idaho/Blaine County Extension office, for coordinating!!!

(Below is a sampling of activities from 2015.  Look for 2016 updates coming soon)
