National Library Week - kids craft!

Pop-up Craft
"sorta"...stop by and surprise!

During school vacation week we try to mix it up at bit.  One of the passive programs we've been playing with on Saturdays and now during this vacation week is Pop-Up Art - Color Like You Mean It or a pop-up craft aka Pop-Up Makerspace.  Basically passive programming and it's working.  

Here's what I put out on Monday afternoon to celebrate National Library Week and provide those on school vacation a simple way to be part of their library.  

Easy peasy: one black sharpie, two heart patterns, a few hearts already traced on 4x4 white card stock and glue sticks to mat the hearts on pre-cut 5x5 paper in assorted colors.  And a whole bunch of crayons!

24 hours later...

And we named it..because one of our volunteers said...Valentine's Day?!

By Thursday afternoon we were done and we have extra hearts.  Not sure where we'll be sharing our extra love - I'm thinking maybe the circulation desk?  

I'll be there on Saturday.  Stop in, check out some new books and leave us a little love!!  

P.S. (Piper Script): Here are some of my favorite new books:
