- Sea Shell Canvas Art: Our most interesting craft this fall is our Sea Shell Canvas Art! We are offering a large variety of paint colors, sand dollars, sea shells, and all sorts of bling and glitz to create your very own masterpiece. Each Friday in the Activities Room we will have all the supplies needed for guests to use their imagination to create an underwater scene on canvas to take home.
Fall is an absolutely beautiful time here at Palace View and Palace View Heights in the Ozarks. With the scenery beginning to change colors, it’s fun just to take a drive and experience the natural artistry. It makes for a perfect calming and relaxing vacation.
- DIY Hand Scrubs: Here at Spinnaker Resorts we love to embrace the fall season and savor the unique fragrances it brings. Making DIY (do-it-yourself) Hand Scrubs with essential oils will leave your hands feeling silky and refreshed while smelling like your favorite fall scent.
- Fall Candles: Starting with a big block of wax we will melt it down and add some favorite scents of fall and fill a mason jar while holding the wick in place. Your homemade candle can be decorated with all of your favorite fall decorations, to make it a unique vacation souvenir. These candles are adorable and they smell incredible!
