Kids' Crafts at the Mulberry Street Library

Share

At the Mulberry Street Library, we host a monthly craft program in the Children’s Room called Kids’ Crafts. Children ages 5 years and up are invited to come to the library to work on simple seasonal crafts, from paper plate turkeys in November to St. Patrick’s Day leprechaun puppets in March.

This summer we made all kinds of bug crafts in honor of the Summer Reading Program’s theme, “Catch the Reading Bug." In June, we made bouncy paper caterpillars with colorful construction paper. In July, we made clothespin butterflies with tissue paper and pompoms. And in August, we made bug buttons with our very own Children’s Room button maker!

This fall we've been working on crafts to celebrate the season. In September, we made paper bag backpacks to get ready to go back to school. In October, we did creepy fingerprint art for Halloween. And in November, we'll make leaf rubbings with the last of fall's leaves.

We’ve got the glue sticks, the scissors, the feathers, and the glitter... We hope you’ll join us on the first Wednesday of each month at 4 o’clock for some craft-making fun! Click here for more information about children's programs at the Mulberry Street Library.
