Waitlist – TAKE and MAKE for Kids: “Happy Thanksgiving” Project Kit

November 17, 2020 - November 19, 2020



Four projects we developed for preschoolers and elementary aged kids.

FREE.  The fun is all created by Ms. Sue and Ms. Heather, with a lot of help from 5 awesome TAG volunteers (our amazing library tweens).  Most years, we’d have a pile of Thanksgiving craft activities and programs in the  children’s room, so in 2020 you get Take-and-Makes instead.

The kit includes:

  • Decorate an Ear of Ornamental Corn*
  • Coffee Filter Turkey*
  • “Cootie Catcher” Thanksgiving Joke Teller
  • Thanksgiving Card

Everything you need is in the bag, except a tiny bit of water to create the coffee filter turkey (we are serious, just a few drops is all you need) and some crayons/markers for coloring the card.

You can choose to pick up your kit(s) curbside or stop at the Children’s Desk during our open hours.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, they go quickly.  First come first serve, please sign up each child separately. (We are now in Waitlist, we will contact you by email if a kit becomes available!)

*Note, some project contain small parts like beads and googly eyes.  Use with caution and supervision if your child is 3 or younger.**
