A summer breeze blew some lime-tinted sand into Logan Kane’s eyes, but he was a trooper and continued with his space-themed sand art.
His friend, Drew Donovan, 6, was busy putting together an airplane as his sister, Maddie, 7, was looking over the supplies at the Art in the Park on Wednesday morning.
“It’s great … there is a variety of things each week,” said Jodi Donovan, of Huntley.
The Kane and Donovan families were among those enjoying the Huntley Park District’s Art in the Park on Wednesday.
Art in the Park is a summer drop-in program, where children can do art for an hour a week. Materials cost from a dime to $1, said Connie Lombard, park district employee. The program is held at 10:30 a.m. each Wednesday.
The projects included sand art, painting and building a foam airplane. Other projects are facemasks, cup holders, visors and bracelets.
Thor Forsythe, 7, and his sister, Viveka, 4, come every week. They even remind their mom the day of the week so they don’t miss Art in the Park.
