Join Just Creations on Saturday July 28 12PM-4PM for their annual Passport Adventure. This event is for elementary aged children and features craft projects from around the world. Children will travel throughout the store to five stations representing regions of the world including Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. As children travel, create art projects, and learn about the different cultures, they get their passports stamped. Every child with a fully stamped passport will receive a fun cultural prize!
Art & craft projects include: Printmaking with African Adinkra stamps, bead necklaces from Vietnam, make your own worry doll from Latin America, and a Scavenger Hunt! All art & craft projects will be run by local artists and volunteers and can be taken home by participants.

The sale of these products helps to provide a fair wage for the artisans and enables them to pay for food, education, health care, and housing. As a member of the Fair Trade Federation, Just Creations is committed to promoting the social and economic progress of people in the developing regions of the world, including Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Just Creations purchases exclusively from Fair Trade Organizations such as Ten Thousand Villages, SERRV, and Equal Exchange.
