This is always a busy time of year, so we like to get our young ones into the library to make all sorts of fun crafts for the holidays. Next week, we’re having our annual Christmas Craft Night for kids aged 6 – 11. There will be crafts, treats, and games. What more could anyone ask for?
The pretty star wreaths we’ll be making!
Registration is full now, so we can’t accept any more crafters, but don’t worry….there will be plenty more craft nights in the New Year! Watch for our 2015 newsletter going out in December to keep up on everything that’s happening at the library!
We had a room full of young crafters, ready to start celebrating the holiday season! And with the snowfall that loomed in the overnight forecast, they were excited.
We made Christmas Cards, which were decorated with glitter and sparkly jewel stickers. Each one turned out differently….and even the insides were creative!
We also put together some 3D snowflakes, which were simple enough to decorate. The kids loved them!
While everyone went home on a bit of a sugar high, at least it was a snow day the next morning and they could sleep in. It was a fun night and we can’t wait until the next one (not the snowstorm, but the next craft night!).
We’re heading into the holiday season, so to get all our young crafters in the spirit, we’re hosting our Christmas Craft Night this evening! It’s always so popular, and we’ve had full registration for weeks. I can’t wait to see what everyone creates!
We’re going to be creating our own fancy Christmas cards, using the sparkly little reindeer we cut out using our new Cricut machine, donated by the wonderful Victoria at Scraptease. I’m sure our creative kids will figure out their own versions of the cards, and surprise someone special with their designs.
And after, we’ll decorate and sparkle up some nifty 3D snowflakes! These are gorgeous and they can hang them on their trees at Christmas.(I’m sure there will be a purple or black one in the mix once they’re finished!)
If you hear lots of giggles tonight while you’re in the library, don’t be afraid to take a peek through the window. We’re celebrating Merry!
Yes, it’s almost that time again….Christmas Craft Night! We’re gearing up for a night full of fun Christmas crafts, games and treats…something to get the festivities started!
Registration has already started, but we still have spaces for kids aged 6 – 12. Hurry, this is the last craft night of the year and it’s bound to fill up quickly! Call us or drop into the library to register for Tuesday, November 26th at 6pm.
Next week, we’re celebrating Christmas at the library! Yes, it’s a little early, but we’re getting ready for Christmas Craft Night on Tuesday, November 27. It’s going to be a fun evening full of crafts, games and treats.
Registration is full, but don’t worry, there will be plenty of other crafts nights in the new year. I’ll post the crazy photos of our Santa Dress Up next week (it’ll be a wacky photo booth of sorts, with reindeer antlers, red noses and Santa beards). Until then, drop by the library and pick up some craft books to start those special gifts, or get a few new ideas for decorating your home this winter.
Yes, it’s only November, but we’re gearing up for Christmas Craft Night tonight at the library! Fifteen kids aged seven to eleven will be joining us to make crafts, munch on goodies, play a few games and have LOTS of fun!
A few treats to take home
We’re going to be making some fuzzy little hats tonight…with nothing more than some yarn, a pair of scissors and a toilet paper tube. These are adorable and fun and I think we’ll wind up with some pretty colourful toques!
We’ll also be making fun little 3-D trees tonight…something simple using circles of different sizes and a lot of folding. I’m also looking forward to the “Pass the Candy Cane” game. I think there will be lots of laughs out of that one!
