Are you bubbling over with holiday spirit? Ready to deck the halls, light the lights, and rock around the Christmas tree? Then, please come share in the festivities at the Mt. Pleasant Library’s Holiday Party on Saturday, Dec. 21 in the Children’s Room.
Families with children of all ages are welcome to participate in a variety of holiday activities from 2-3 p.m. Listen to holiday stories and music, make a snowy craft, and play fun games!
Hope to see you there!
Won’t be able to make it? Don't fret! You can still participate by making paper snowflakes for us to decorate with! We’ll be making some at the party, but these are great seasonal crafts to make at home as well. Young ones can practice scissor skills and explore the concepts of symmetry and fractions.
Here are some great places for snowflake inspiration:
Snip, Snip ... Snow! by Nancy Poydar
A story about Sophie, who wants it to snow and anxiously awaits a predicted snowstorm. The book includes instructions for making paper snowflakes.
Check out this Math Craft for more information about the science and math behind paper snowflakes as well as a great tutorial on how to make 6-sided, scientifically correct, paper snowflakes.
Visit First Palette for free printables of paper snowflake patterns and coloring pages.
Please drop off any snowflakes by Saturday, Dec. 21 at the Children’s Desk on the second floor.
Thanks so much and happy holidays!!
