These kids are ready to hang!
A handful of tykes got crafty at a Park Slope art studio on Dec. 9, where they created their own Christmas and Hanukkah ornaments at an adorable event that gave the youngsters a chance to put their stamp on the holidays, according to the studio’s owner.
“The kids are just old enough to understand what they’re going to be used for, and seemed really excited to hang them up,” said Valeen Bhat, who runs Private Picassos at 237 Fifth Ave. between President and Carroll streets.
The tots, who were mostly between 3-and-4-years-old, received hollow bulbs that they filled with colorful doodads including yarn, feathers, and pompoms.
The little ornament makers then topped off their baubles with glitter, glue, and other arts-and-crafts accouterments, while Bhat employed some tricks of the trade she learned after more than a decade in the neighborhood to ensure the youngsters didn’t leave behind a merry mess to clean up.
“We try to set things up in this workshop so the kids can have free range of what they’re doing, but also limit how much of a mess they can make,” said Bhat. “We’ve been around for 13 years, we know how to deal.”
