Kids in preschool through 9th grade are invited to come to Shaw Library's I Made It Myself arts and crafts sessions on Sundays, Aug. 23, Aug. 30, and Sept. 6 to work on your D.C. State Fair Kids Art and Poetry Contest entry. We'll provide markers, crayons, paper, scissors, and poetry books for inspiration. You provide the creativity (and any special materials you'd like to use)!
Sunday afternoons are for crafts and coloring at Francis Gregory library. Come in and make something to take home - craft, sketch, color, draw or paint! Children ages 12 and younger and their caregivers are welcome, and all craft supplies will be provided. This program is intended for children ages 4-12 and their families.
Join us in the Children's Room for arts and crafts. Past projects have included sand art, watercolor painting, tie-dye, shoebox houses, kites, cork boats, and homemade play dough. For ages 6-12. Children younger than 9 must be accompanied by a caregiver. Questions? Call 202-724-4691.
