Craft Resource and Discussion Thread

by Amelea Kim -

List any successful craft ideas that you have done with youth at your library! This could be for your youngest children, school-age, or tweens and teens! Some suggestions for what to include in your post:

  • Links to directions, or information on where you found the craft idea
  • Any files/material lists/handouts that you used
  • Modification ideas for different age groups
  • Where you used this craft (standalone, as part of a storytime, as part of a bigger event)
  • Any other thoughts that might be helpful!

  • Favorite songs/rhymes
  • Opening or closing rituals
  • Finger plays, or hand motions
  • Call and responses

Anything you are willing to share would be great!
