Valentine’s Pets & Crafts Workshop

Monday, Feb. 15, 2-4 p.m.

Register in advance online


Recommended for grades 3-6. Younger children may require assistance from parents/guardians.

Join us on Zoom to meet Woods Animals & help us make and deliver Valentine’s goodies to them!

Together we will make these Dog & Cat Valentine’s goodies: A fleece no-sew stuffed heart toy/pillow, heart dog/cat Valentine’s card, no-bake dog heart treats.

We will use mostly household items that you might have around your house (supplies listed below).

For those who need community service hours, we can sign off on 2 hours for the workshop and give you ideas for more pet toys you can make and donate to Woods!
