For ages 6-12
Make a pretty paper bouquet to give to a friend or family member, or to decorate your home.
Spring is here! Create paper flowers to brighten up your home, after we read a few spring poems in honor of National Poetry Month (celebrated in April in the US). Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager Celeste and volunteers will guide you in creating your own unique DIY 3-dimensional flowers, using simple paper cutting techniques for beginners and more complicated folds and cuts for experienced crafters. We’ll show you the basics, and you can tailor your project to your heart’s desire. Caregivers are requested to join in with their children and participate in the program.
In preparation for this event, please gather the following items:
- At least 6 sheets of colored paper or construction paper (A4 or letter size)
- Glue and/or a glue stick
- Scraps of colored paper or magazine cutouts

- A ruler
Additional (optional) materials:
- Hot glue gun (and a grown-up)
