Preschoolers Create and Sell for a Good Cause
Wrapping up their year-long study of animals and insects, this week one of our preschool classes, the Afternoon Explorers, held a boutique to sell beautiful handmade items. The children decided to donate the money they would raise to ARKive, an international organization that helps protect endangered animals.
All items for sale were made by the children. They learned to make something for someone else, as well as the Mitzvah (good deed) of donating money to a worthwhile cause. We are happy to report that they raised $317.69 and were sold out faster than expected.
What a special ending to a terrific year for the Afternoon Explorers!
