Getting into Nature: Take and Make for Adults, Teens and Kids

Getting into Nature: Take and Make for Adults, Teens and Kids

Wednesday, July 28

10:00 am - 7:00 pm

This summer, we’re getting back to basics with a series of Take-and-Makes for all ages! On the last Wednesday of every month, Blackstone Library will drop a different nature-based craft, brought to you through our new crafting resource, CreativeBug. Those interested are welcome to pick-up a Take and Make bag filled with the necessary materials in the Youth Services Department (please note: to help keep our littles safe, masks are required when entering Youth Services). Grab a kit, then watch the video on CreativeBug at your leisure to make your own nature-themed craft!

Registration for this activity is not required but pick-up will be on a first-come, first-served basis. To help us share this craft with as many people as possible, we ask that you please take one kit per family–there is plenty to do in each kit! Kits will be available while supplies last, and are made possible by The Friends of The James Blackstone Memorial Library.
