SNOWFLAKE — Children, ages five to 12, are invited to create fun and quick holiday crafts during three free Discovery Nest craft activity sessions offered at Northland Pioneer College’s Snowflake/Taylor – Silver Creek Campus library on Saturday, December 7 and 14, between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., and on Friday, December 20, between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.
On December 7, NPC Librarian Luann Crosby and staff will guide participants through the creation of a 3-D gingerbread house holiday card. They can take the card home for themselves or send it to family or friends. The card folds flat for mailing but pulls out into a magical 3-D house for display.
Then on Saturday, December 14, Discovery Nesters will use cleverly cut and linked folded paper and colorful rubber bands to create their very own 3-D paper ornament.
On Friday, December 20, the final craft of the series will be a creatively folded star-shaped gift box with a personalized puzzle for each participant hidden inside.
Everyone is welcome to join in these free Discovery Nest activities. However, children must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18 at all times.
“During the holiday season, it’s fun to get the family out to do crafts together. Previous Discovery Nest activities were very popular,” notes Crosby. “Youngsters really enjoy creating and learning about how to do the 3-D crafts. It is fun and educational at the same time.”
For additional information about the Discovery Nest program, contact Luann Crosby, associate librarian, 536-6220. NPC’s Snowflake/Taylor campus is located at 1611 S. Main St.
