November Take & Make Craft: Crouching Frog
This month, join Karen to learn how to make a Crouching Frog!
The packs will be ready to pick up from our three libraries on the 16th November, so come grab one and follow along with the video on the Waimakariri Libraries Facebook page to see how it's made. In the meantime, we still have some October packs available.
All you will need to supply are scissors, glue/sticky tape and colouring-in materials. Everything else that you need to make the craft will be included in the Take & Make packs each month. You may also find a list of relevant resources and a couple of fun activities in each month's pack which can keep the kids entertained for hours.
New packs are released on the third Thursday of every month, so keep a look out for the next craft video and Take & Make packs on the 16th November.
Please ask a friendly member of the Library Team for your Take & Make Craft Pack at Oxford, Kaiapoi, or Rangiora Library, and remember – numbers are strictly limited so be in quick.
Ages 5+, parental supervision recommended.
Please note, you are still able to view these videos via our Facebook page even if you are not signed up to Facebook yourself. Just click the "Watch Now" button below to get started.
