Event Details

Kids ages 7-11 can combine creativity and engineering at the library’s new crafting station! Create something new each month. Supplies and instructions will be available at the library to work at your own pace.

November - Gratitude Gourd
Use bright strips of paper to list what you appreciate, then loop them together to make a gratitude gourd.

December - Clay Creation
Model your clay into a snowperson, then decorate with beads and other craft supplies.

January - 3D Snow Scene
Paint a snowflake backdrop with a cotton swab, then accordion-fold a 3-D snowfield and decorate a winter scene.

February - Water Reveal Color Magic
Draw a simple design on the front of a paper towel, with hidden colors on the layer behind. Hang in the window for hints of color, or drop into a little water to watch the secret colors seep through! Makes a fun gift.

March - Swoop and Dive Bird ‘Kite’
Decorate and fold a simple bird design, then attach a string and get ready to swoop and soar!

April - Feed the Frog Origami Game
Use simple origami to make your frog, then attach a string tongue and see if you can catch the fly in this adaptation of the classic cup and ball game.
