Hey Yall Happy Holidays from your ArtBarn Buddies!

Just a couple quick notes:

• We will be open for farm fun Mon/Tues Nov 19/20  (10-1:00)

Pack lunches/drinks & dress in layers... it is supposed to warm !


• Farm Fresh PlayDates the 26th -30th Which Mother Nature kindly has  promised warm weather - yeeeehaw woohoooo & a cockadoodle do for sure.

• Our December Farm Fun Details to be posted by Nov. 27th.            We now have heat in both barns so we can snuggle in big time for lots of fun, creative activities for all ages - along with each activity there will be lots of time for animal snuggling, exploring & a hayride! DETAILS BELOW.

• and Farmer Sue Needs a Favor - if you are a homeschooler let us know what kind of educational projects or workshops you might be interested in seeing here and we will do our best to put something cool together for you  - we are not just for little ones!

Here are just a few of the ideas we are working on:

• Barnyard Tales in the Cozy Bunny Barn: Stories, Animals, Art

• Woodland Wednesdays: featuring stories & art project about the animals who live beyond the barnyard. 

• Build A Barn: Adorable Art project where you ... build a barn & then paint or draw your favorite barnyard buddies inside, or turn it into a birdhouse, or even a Nativity!  

• Create a Holiday Canvas : featuring Barnyard Buddies with wreaths or Santa Hats,  Classic Cool old Farm Truck, Snowmen and more!  (we will offer for both kiddos and Girls Night Out for sure!) 

• Home Spun Holidays: Come whip up some butter to take home using our antique butter churn, Look for Eggs & Make a magnolia wreath and more. 

• Ornaments for Indoors & Out:  some for your tree & some for your nature friends. 

• Picnic with Picasso & Pals - each week we will meet a different famous artist and eggsplore the art they created with animals and create our own barnyard masterpiece.  

• and we will get our Horse Heaven workshop back on the cowlendar tooo.


This is just the start of our list - our team is super EGG cited about December, January & February!
