Create a unique token with clay-like material that will have beautiful colors.
In an hour-long online Zoom class, we will show you how to make and decorate tokens with symbols for the people who helped us to stay safe and at home during this time with the COVID-19 pandemic. Your name will go on the back where you can also write a personal note to thank our doctors, mailmen, grocery store clerks, etc.
Because there are many essential workers in our community, we want to make as many of these tokens as possible. This is a great project for both kids and families, so gather your family and friends to participate.
The Art Center will collect tokens and deliver them to the essential workers following all health guidelines and procedures.Supply List

Salt Dough Recipe
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup salt
- 1 cup water
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Gradually add water while stirring and mixing to form a dough with a Play-Doh like consistency. Form the dough into a ball and knead for approximately 5 minutes, adding a bit more flour if the dough is too sticky or a bit more water if it’s too dry.
