I am an educator at a local environmental center. During the school year, I host field trips with elementary school-age children.
During the summer I lead week-long summer camps. One of our camps is about cryptozoology and creatures of legend. Since the camps are at an environmental center I decided to make a craft that used something we found in nature and customized it for my students. We made thin slices of wood from downed tree branches which we laser engraved with various mythical creatures. Each student puts the pendant on a piece of string and decorates it with beads for a custom souvenir.
