Arts and crafts offer children a safer alternative to more hazardous construction projects such as homemade slingshots and tree houses built from Lincoln Logs. Put pint-sized hands to good use with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 toward children's crafts and studio time at Craft Caboose in Kirkwood. Walk-in studio sessions are available Tuesday–Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.
Craft Caboose's charming brick storefront bursts with a vibrant assortment of children's crafts, assembled in its public studio under the artistic eye of amicable instructors. Kids ages 18 months to 6 years can take to the Caboose's well-stocked studio ($5 for entry) to hone their handiwork on sets of pirate ($1.50–$4), dinosaur ($1.50–$5), and princess crafts ($1–$8), or valiantly proffer a truce to playground bullies with a handcrafted peace sign ($4–$5). The Caboose arms its artists with all necessary supplies, allowing kids to craft an eye-fetching array of sand-art pieces without hitching unwieldy sandboxes to the backs of their Big Wheels ($1–$5). Accompanying adults can admire their children's budding chops while the able staff whips each creation station back to its original spotless grandeur.
