Send kids to craft day while you hit the mall
A number of Sno-Isle libraries are offering free craft-making sessions. The libraries will supply the materials and the kids can bring their own creativity to make such things as fridge magnets, peanut butter bird feeders, buttons or duct tape whatevers.
Kids can even make their own "Angry Birds" out of pompoms and rubber bands.
The libraries listed below will all participate. Call your local branch for the day's activities or check online at www.sno-isle.org.
