Grab & Go: Leaf Silhouette

leaf craft

Grab & Go
Leaf Silhouette

Children Drop-in

Stop by any MCPL location in November to pick up a children's grab and go craft kit that is perfect for fall!

We will provide supplies and instructions for children to create a leaf silhouette. It looks like it might be a little complex, but it's not! Once the shape of a leaf is cut out of cardstock, it can be taped to a piece of cardboard to create a hinge. After that, participants can arrange strips of paper on the cardboard, lay the silhouette over top of it and voila! You have a beautiful design in the shape of a leaf!

Leaves found on the ground can be beautiful, but this is a creative way for children to choose colors and patterns to make a leaf of their very own! These make for great decorations or a lovely gift!

Free and available while they last. Call our Children's Department at 715-261-7220 for more information.
