Craft Activities for Kids: Coming Soon!

April 15, 2020


Community Education

All of the instructors at North Bennet Street School have been brainstorming ideas to keep their students engaged in hands-on learning while at home. This is just as true for our Middle School instructors, including woodworking teachers Emily Fazzina CF ’18 and Emily Natale!

Watch a short video check-in with Emily and Emily, previewing some fun upcoming activities just for younger learners. Download the activity worksheets and coloring pages.

From our founding in 1881, NBSS has partnered with several local schools to provide hands-on learning experiences. In recent years, the School renewed partnerships which invite students from the Eliot K-8 Innovation School, St. John School, and Donald McKay K-8 School to NBSS for book arts and woodworking classes.

Coming soon, Emily and Emily have some fun projects lined up for you to try at home. But first, you’ll need to gather some supplies:

  • Paper towel or toilet paper rolls
  • Clean cardboard from your recycling bin
  • Duct tape or painters tape
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

As you color and fill out your worksheets, we’d love for you to share them with us! Send them directly to Emily and Emily at, or tag @nbssboston or #nbssboston on Facebook and Instagram.

Looking for more coloring activities? Check out “Color Me Essential,” a new coloring book from Artists for Humanity. Featuring their mascot dog, Bahk-Bahk, it honors all of the COVID-19 heroes in our communities. Share your creations back with them using the hashtags #ColorMeEssential and #AFHBoston!
