SKrafty Together is the online homeschool meetup you’ve always wanted! It’s like a homeschool co-op, but online! The sessions are carefully chosen to appeal to a wide interest of students. Students will love meeting up together online with their friends. They will be learning, crafting, engaging, playing together interactively and having so much fun each week. We have been running online courses and meetups for years. SKrafty Together is another exciting addition to the SKrafty family of opportunities for kids to be social, play & learn online in a safer and moderated environment.
COST is for the WHOLE family – Detailed schedule below under course content!!!
There will be several sessions to follow, and participants can choose all or some of them. Sessions are all live and will be taught using our online classroom. As is practical, they will be recorded for students to watch later if they miss it live.
