Gift-making afternoon offers the personal touch

October 31, 2012 by  

At Christmas, there can be few more personal gifts than one that somebody has created themselves – something that ‘Gifts from Nature’ will demonstrate at the Crabtree Nature Center in Barrington this November.

Those who take part in this event will create gifts by using natural items such as sticks and leaves. They will have the chance to create picture frames, table runners, and other handmade artifacts. It will give them an opportunity to create holiday gifts to give to friends, family, and loved ones. The gift will definitely be unique and the recipient is particularly likely to appreciate the effort that was made in creating it.

The Crabtree Nature Center sits on over 1,000 acres and has 260 species of birds and other animals on the grounds. The Center features natural exhibits and self-guided trails. It is open Sunday – Thursday and closed on holidays, such as Christmas and Thanksgiving.

The Center draws visitors from all over the Cook County area, including Rolling Meadows. Administration officials no doubt depend on local printing companies to help them promote and advertise upcoming events and programs. Flyers are reasonable inexpensive and are a great way to inform the community about local events and organizations. They can be distributed in a wide variety of ways, making them a quick and suitable option to promote any activity like this.

The event will take place on November 18 from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm and admission is $5 for those aged 10 and up.
