DIY Festival Recap

The 4th annual Living Lab Do It Yourself (DIY) Holiday Festival, held in the cafeteria during MP on December 7, put students and staff in the holiday mood. Put on by student Eco Leaders, the event is designed to encourage more sustainable holiday activities, such as making your own gifts and decorations. Most students headed straight for the cookie decorating area. Dragon parents and students baked up a storm of ginger bread and sugar cookies cut into holiday and animal shapes. After selecting the perfect cookie, students decorated with colored icing and a large selection of sprinkles, and washed it down with some hot spiced cider.

With hunger at bay, students and staff could choose from a variety of DIY activities, including making swags or wreaths from redwood boughs and other native plants cut in the Living Lab, ornaments made from Living Lab pine cones and acorns, dream catchers featuring Living Lab chicken feathers (donated through the natural molting process!), and holiday paper crafts made with old library books. Live holiday music was provided by student musicians.

The sights, sounds, and smells of the holiday season gave everyone a chance to relax and enjoy some well deserved fun before finals week!
