Children at the YMCA’s Childcare Center spent the last week of summer camp making pets to take home — “Pet Rocks” that is.
The staff of Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley stopped by the Childcare Center at Hensel Eckman YMCA to help the children with this “fun, yet challenging art project.”
While Pet Rocks were popular novelty item of the 1970s, they were new to this group of young artists. A public display featuring some of the childrens’ summer camp creations is being created at the YMCA.
The YMCA is on Oakhurst Avenue in the town of Pulaski.
