Hobby horses come alive at the CDC

The Kitimat Child Development Centre has received four beautiful, classic hand-made hobby horses for the daycare’s children to use.

Thanks go to the efforts of the Girl Guides, who made the original shape hobby horses under the watchful eyes of Lois Godfrey.

The seniors’ craft group decorated the horses and Ruth Hanson finished them with colourful manes and long eyelashes. Hugh Story perfected the beautiful leather harnesses. Darlene Tait from the Red Hat Ladies was the project coordinator.
