Which Craft? Wednesday has been phased into Grab & Go Craft Kits! Instead of finding materials around the house, teens in grades 7-12 can pick up a kit with project supplies at the Library, then follow along with the instructional video below to make the project. Or, you can find the materials around your home and follow the video to make the project. Due to wintry weather and winds, Grab & Go Kits are now held inside the Library. Rather than having them sit outside to be picked up, when you arrive at the Library to pick up a kit, just call 914-422-1490 and let them know which kit you are there to pick up.
For this month’s project, we’ll make heart-shaped Valentines from air dry clay. The kit includes air dry clay and popsicle sticks and toothpicks you can use to shape the clay. You’ll need to provide a surface to work on (wax paper, for example), a rolling pin or alternative cylinder, and any paint or markers you might want to use. And here's some helpful information about the general properties of air dry clay.
On Tuesday, February 23rd at 4 p.m., bring your kit (or your own supplies) and join us on Zoom to work on the project together. Click here for more information. Note: for events taking place within Zoom, a free registered Zoom account is required to access the Library’s youth programs. Get a Zoom account here.
Follow along with the video below, and please post pictures of your creations on Instagram or Facebook and tag us so we can see what you make!
