Winter Activities: Snowflake-Making

Winter time is beautiful but it can make you feel you’re limited in the activities you can do.

Luckily there are some fun traditional (and creative!) pastimes you can do that have a neat, modern take on them. If you remember cutting snowflakes out of paper and want to do that again, but differently, you can now join the Baby Yoda and Mandalorian madness and make snowflakes inspired by those characters.

Go to Anthony Herrera’s site and check out what he’s done for Star Wars fans! You can download the snowflake templates, and cut and fold according to his instructions. Got kids or grandkids? This may be a great activity to do with them. It develops and strengthens hand-eye coordination AND engages them in a creative activity that’s cheap and wall-hanging-worthy.

Don’t have a printer at home? Come down to the library and we’ll help you print what you like: 20 cents a page for black and white, and 25 cents a page for color.

Sunflower Sip & Paint

Join us for another fun and fabulous Sip and Paint with artist Kathy Knox! This time we’ll learn how to paint a closeup of a pretty sunflower while we sip tasty beverages and try some snacks. Tickets are for a donation of $35 and are available at the library during regular business hours. Bring your ID as adult beverages will be available.

Story Time at the Library!

Every Thursday from 10:30am-11:30am we have Story Time at the library! We do Music & Motion activities and songs like Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes, Going on a Bear Hunt, and other fun things that get us moving (and shake the wiggles out before we settle into a good book). Then we read one of our many great children’s picture books while sitting in super-comfy beanbag chairs! We then move to our activity table and do a craft that connects to what was just read. If time allows we play with Legos, Connect Four, Candy Land, or something similar, emphasizing sharing, patience, communication, and kindness. Come join us!
