    Kids' Day

    Kids' Day is held once a month and is designed to allow children from area schools and after school programs to come to our headquarters and try out some of our neatest new sm'ARt products. The event is a hands-on experience that compliments the art education children receive in the classroom and provides a great opportunity for creativity.

    We also give the kids an exciting demonstration of how ideas make it from the minds of our brilliant designers all the way to the classroom and home craft table, including a tour of the enormous state-of-the-art warehouse where they can see firsthand where we package our products and load the trucks for shipping. This is always a highlight!

    We at Creative Hands are grateful for the chance to bring a little more creative fun into kids' lives!

    Creative Hands® Forms sm'ARt School Partnership with Chicago School

    Last month we spent one fun-filled day last month at STEM Magnet Academy with art teacher Jessica Londay and her students. We will visit the Chicago public school 3 more times this year as part of our first-ever sm’ARt School Partnership.

    Product designers and other staff at Fibre-Craft Materials Corp. are lending their creative expertise to help with a different project for each grade at STEM< which stands for science, technology, engineering and math. The school has children in grades kindergarten through third and has two classes per grade.

    Kindergartners

    • will create potted foam flower frame sculptures. They have been divided into groups with a specific academic focus, such as as literacy, PE or science.


    First-graders

    • will make mixed medium mosaics

    • have been divided into groups to work on a subject of study


    Second-graders

    • will make 3D packing tape sculptures using classroom materials as the foundation


    Third-graders

    • will form groups and create acrylic paintings on canvas. Each canvas will represent part of STEM or another subject of study.


    The partnership is an opportunity to make a difference in children’s lives and an extension of our already popular Kids Day program. The initiative will end with an art show featuring all the wonderful artwork done by the students.
