What do arts and crafts have in common with "American Idol"? The popular television show has become a family affair in Garner, North Carolina during hometown finalist Scotty McCreery’s local viewing parties. Barbara Wolfmueller Crissman, a neighbor of McCreery’s family and local sales representative for California-based Discount School Supply (DSS), a distributor of early childhood educational materials and arts and crafts supplies, has created a crafts program for local children to make “Idol Guitars” to show their support of their hometown favorite. DSS is providing craft materials for local children at community weekly viewing parties where "Idol" results track Scotty’s progress toward becoming the next winner of "American Idol."

Everyone loved the Foam Paint and making guitars. It was great to see families enjoying the fun together and the children were so anxious to paint. It was a whirlwind of activity.

DSS is providing craft materials for local children at community weekly viewing parties where "Idol" results track Scotty’s progress toward becoming the next winner of "American Idol."

Supporters can decorate their own guitars and spirit megaphones using Colorations ® Foam Paint and other art materials donated by DSS. Last week, adults and children alike enjoyed creating their own guitars to look just like Scotty's. Crissman said, "Everyone loved the Foam Paint and making guitars. It was great to see families enjoying the fun together and the children were so anxious to paint. It was a whirlwind of activity."

If you’re in the area, visit the DSS arts & crafts booth at the next viewing parties on Thursday, March 31st, at the Garner Historic Auditorium and the Avery Street Recreation Center to make your own guitar or megaphone in support of Scotty.
