Since the girls have started back to school, I haven't had much time for crafting with them. I saw our local library had painting scheduled this week, so I decided we'd check it out. I told Allison we were going to go leaf painting at the library. I couldn't believe her spoil sport attitude when she exclaimed "That sounds boring!" Tough cookies, you are going.
Of course, once she got started, she was like "This is so fun! We need to do this more often!" She liked it so much, she painted 2 pictures. Kids.... Such crazy little creatures!
We hadn't participated in any of the crafting activities at our library before this. Now I'm wondering why not? Free art supplies and THEY clean it up! What's not to love about that!? I checked next months schedule and there are a ton of fun things we will be doing. Making Halloween masks is on Allison's list of must do, and Mariah is really excited by the Harry Potter party they will be throwing, since she gets to go in costume. Fun times are definitely ahead at the library!
Does your library offer free community art events? If so, do you attend them?
