Saturday Crafternoon: November 22

Please join us at the Central library for one of my favourite upcycling crafts! We’ll be using recycled materials to make water bottle snowmen. We had a blast making them last year and I’m happy to be able to post a craft made by one of last year’s participants. Crafts involving recycled materials are a great way to teach children about conservation and to emphasize the importance of preserving our resources. The kids always out-do me with their creativity and I’m glad to be able to give Continue Reading...
