Using Everyday materials to talk about and process emotions can be a useful tool for both adults and young people. Face Off invites you to explore your feelings and emotions by building faces with the objects you have around the house. Photographs above (with the exception of one) were created and taken by Kayvon (5 years old) and Tobie ( 5.5 years old).

While it seems most of our normal summer plans are up in the air, making things doesn’t have to be. This is why we created Craft in Place – a collaborative effort between SCRAP Creative Reuse, Tuesday Tumbleweed, and Pen + Pine . With generous support from Humboldt Sponsors, these projects are designed to help you think differently about what supplies you have at home, inspire you to make things with simple materials, and explore the inner workings of your imagination. We will be releasing a new project every Tuesday & Thursday. You can follow the inspiration here.
🥁 Introducing Craft in Place – Inspired by everyday materials, these projects are designed to kickstart your creativity to make things by yourself, with your child, or even over zoom with your grandma! ✂️
