OK, this may just be the coolest thing ever. Anna Rummel Tennenbaum, a toy maker, is offering a Woodland Fairy and Elf Costume Workshop through the Montana Natural History Center.

Get this: The workshop will teach kids and adults how to make their own “crowns, tiaras and accessories using natural materials found in the garden.” Maybe it’s just me, but that sounds awesome.

The cost is $5 to cover supplies, and child participants should probably be at least 8 years old. For more information call the history center at 327-0405.

You’ll want to sign up soon – Registration for the Thursday, Oct. 20 workshop closes at 5 p.m. this Monday, Oct. 17. The two-hour workshop will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Fort Missoula Native Plant Garden.

If you miss that one, though, there’s another fun activity coming up courtesy of the history center. On Oct. 29, from 2-3 p.m., the center will host a “Spiders” Saturday kids activity with the help of Animal Wonders.

Be forewarned: the activity includes live spiders. Kids ages 5 and older are welcome, and welcome to come in costume. The cost for this one is $5 too.
