Blackout Poetry: Great for Readers, Writers, & Artists of All Ages

Take control of a newspaper article’s words and make them beautiful and powerful through YOUR poetic interpretation of them. Great for writers, poets, and artists of all ages and skill levels–you only need to be able to read and use markers, pens, crayons, or colored pencils. Wear your mask and bring your adventurous spirit and creativity.

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.
