A Banner Week for Little Bits and Opportunity Knocks

Kid-powered collaboration yields street decorations made from recycled materials.

Very happy to see this arrive in the inbox the other day, compliments of Liita Forsyth, a River Forest resident who leads the Little Bits Workshop. She writes:

The Little Bits Workshop partnered with Opportunity Knocks to create a splash on Lake Street in River Forest. Young campers 5-9 years old created street banners, planted gardens and yarn-bombed a tree for the sole purpose of showing people how individuals of all ages and abilities can come together to create beauty and make a difference. The message is is simple:

GROWING...OPPORTUNITIES...TOGETHER...which means if we accept and respect those with disabilities, the sky is the limit.

(The banners were made from repurposed materials: a photographer's back drop, vintage doilies, old t-shirts and countless scraps from other projects.) Best of all, they didn't cost the Village one red cent, in case anyone's wondering!
