Take and Make Kits!

Every week we create a new Take-and-Make Craft Kit! Stop by and pick up a bag with supplies and instructions to make a fun craft geared towards preschool and early elementary kids.

New kits are ready for pickup starting on Tuesdays and are available while supplies last.

Drop in on Wednesdays between 2:30 and 4:30 pm to create with us!
