PROSPECT HEIGHTS — It's crafting for a good cause.
The sixth annual craft fair, being held on Saturday, will offer everything from cheap eats to handmade jewelry, with activities for kids including yoga and science experiments.
"We didn't want to make it ... your typical school craft fair," said Faye Rimalovski, a parent volunteer with two kids at the Underhill Avenue school. "We wanted to have this fun, great, artsy Brooklyn vibe."
A raffle for dozens of prizes and vendors' fees for the events — whose participants include the Brooklyn-based craft kit seller Crafterschool and the Vanderbilt Avenue restaurant Amorina — will go toward the school's visual art and dance classes, which need to be re-funded every year, she said.
"In public schools, there is no rainy day fund," Rimalovski said, adding the fair raised about $6,500 last year and hopes to make even more this year.
Activities for kids at the fair include a kids' yoga session and a lesson on how to extract DNA from a strawberry. Tickets are $5 per child.
The fair runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at 80 Underhill Ave. between St. Marks Avenue and Bergen Street. Admission is free.
