Get crafty at home with kits, classes from Scrap Exchange
If you're looking for something new to do with your kids at home as this pandemic drags on, I wanted to direct you over to the Scrap Exchange, which is offering some online activities and creative packs for kids.Posted — Updated
For the uninitiated, the Scrap Exchange is a fantastic Durham nonprofit that promotes creativity and environmental awareness through reuse. In the before COVID times, my kid and I liked to just wander around its store and find all kinds of treasures — from fabric squares and sheets of stickers to random items that companies use for industrial processes.
The Scrap Exchange is currently selling bundles of all kinds of items that kids and families at home can use to get creative.
If you're up for going inside, the Scrap Exchange's Reuse Arts Center and thrift store also are both open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. They are at the Lakewood Shopping Center in Durham at 2050 Chapel Hill Rd.
