We all know witches need a secret place to brew their magic potions so we made up a special “witch’s den” for one of this year’s Good Sam Kids Classes. The witches weren’t in the den when the picture was taken, but they will be there for the class, and every class participant will take one home with their project.

This class is designed for children 8+ years, the structure will constructed prior to class, but will need to be painted. Might be a good idea to have a paint smock, apron, or old shirt. .black is really black. Small items will be made in class, the shelf, the cauldron stand, potion bottles, and even ghosts. With all the painting, making, and then decorating, this project will take the complete two hour class time. All needed supplies will be provided.
