What to Expect
Let's Get Crafty is perfect for functions where you want to keep your kids busy! Face painters and balloon twisters are great, but with a craft party the kids can keep themselves occupied much longer, and they are learning how to entertain themselves. I work with the children to make sure they have fun!!
I'm Julie Engelhardt, creative director of Let's Get Crafty! a mobile craft class that comes to your party or event. I also include Story Time and games. I'm a teacher and entertainer who appears as Mrs. Claus during the holidays. Need someone to keep the kids busy during any time of the year? I can do it!!
Additional Booking Notes
Depending upon the venue and the event, my needs are different, but vary simple. If this is for a group situation with a lot of people (say at a mall) then I will require a comfortable chair and microphone that is either a lavalier (clip on) microphone, or a stand microphone that is adjustable. I need to have two hands free so that I can hold the book and turn the pages in order to read to the children. I need a well lit area as well. I also ask that the venue is away from loud noises or distractions or that there is assistance to ensure that the audience is not speaking/talking while I read to the children. Loud noises can be distracting to the story time program. Other than that, we're good to go!

Influences & Inspiration
I work as a substitute teacher as well, so I am used to performing and interacting with children. I also spread the word of reading and literacy. I have a friend who grew up illiterate, and never learned how to read until he was in his mid thirties. I want to show children that reading never has to be a chore--that it's fun!
