Children’s Respite Creates Mother’s Day Crafts

The children in The Arc of Essex County’s Saturday Respite program enjoyed a special visit to Studio Arc to make Mother’s Day crafts together in early May. The group used mixed media to make cards that looked like teacups, each of which held a tea bag gift for mom.

The Children’s Saturday Respite Program is a community-based program for children ages 5 to 21. The program participates in both community-based and in-center activities including visits to parks, festivals, cooking, arts and crafts, and more. The in-center location is based out of Maplewood.
