Ideas for Scheduling Fall Crafts for Women’s Retreats
The following are different ways we’ve scheduled craft time for retreats:
Have several different women lead a craft.
When you choose multiple leaders, several sessions can be going on at once. The ladies can choose which craft they want most to do. This method of scheduling works well for retreat groups over 50. It helps break down the groups into manageable numbers so that everyone has a chance to get help when needed and not be overwhelmed by the numbers.
Offer one craft and have everyone do the craft together.
With smaller overall numbers at the retreat, it’s fun to have all the ladies do the same craft. Camaraderie develops as conversations over the craft ensue.
Supply all materials plus step-by-step instructions for multiple crafts in one large room and let the ladies choose and then work on their crafts all together.
This method makes it extra fun as it provides such variety. To stay organized, place all materials and directions in large, gallon size ziplock bags. Also, have one or two leaders walk around the room to help as needed.
No matter which method you choose of scheduling crafts, be sure to take lots of pictures to commemorate the creativity and fun!
Any one of these fall crafts for women’s retreats will brighten your event and provide a meaningful take-away for retreat participant.
