Youngsters at Sunday’s market were selling handmade soap, handmade bird feeders, book marks, and bath ‘bombs.’

Philip Thesen, 8, told Peace Arch News Sunday that he decided to make bookmarks out of pipe cleaner and other materials because he “loves to read.”

Josh Coxford, 9, and Cole Rowson, 9, created bird-feeders using a plastic plate, water bottle and wooden spoon.

Alex Zhou, 9, and Henry Yeo, 9, used a number of ingredients, including citric acid, to make their “Bath Pro’s Bombs.”

Some students allocated some of their proceeds to charitable causes.
