These kits include most or all of the supplies needed to complete these projects and instructions.

The target audience for each activity varies; there are activities for children, teens, adults and all ages. 

To pick up a kit, visit any MCPL location or the MCPL Wausau drive thru during normal hours of operation, no appointment required. For curbside pickup at the MCPL branches, please call ahead.
