These paper wallets are a fun way above all else, to facilitate children’s understanding of the concept of money. Considering what financial literacy looks like in our country, it’s never too early to start. With wallets, kids count and organize their dollar bills, save them until they’re ready to make their purchase.
Today’s #MakeArtMondays we’re featuring a string puppet. One great thing about making tissue paper roll puppets is that you’re showing your children how easy it is to recycle and reuse packaging: empty tissue paper rolls create the bodies of these DIY puppets.

Fidget spinners are small, ball-bearing devices that the user can rotate between his or her fingers. The momentum of the toy provides a pleasing sensory experience, according to user reviews, while the challenge of tossing, transferring and twirling the spinners has spawned an entire universe of instructional YouTube videos.

In the spirit of Jamaica and its people in their full historical and cultural glory, the Montego Bay Cultural Centre is pleased to present its Virtual Summer Workshop. Our objective is to encourage the creativity and imagination of our youth by allowing them to explore ideas through the creation of craft projects from the comfort of their own home.
We aim to encourage creative and critical thinking skills virtually by using various aspects of Jamaica’s natural and material history and culture. Designed for youth ages 7- 12, our activities will guide and encourage youth to cultivate a sense of community through empowerment, perception, identification, and creative expression.
Activities will begin on August 10,2020 and each child will be required to submit their completed project by Friday of the same week. Submissions will be reviewed and scored. The child with the highest score wins and will be announced on the first day of the following week before the project is announced.
