Take & Make
Published July 31st, 2020
For grades K-5
Take & Makes are crafts and activities that you pick up at the library, take home, and make together with everyone on Zoom. Some are crafts, some are science, and all have opportunities for fun and creativity. Take & Makes must be requested and picked up no later than the day before the Zoom meeting each Tuesday.
Shrinking Plastic Charms
It’s science! It’s art! It’s awesome! Draw and color a design on a special thermo-plastic sheet, cut it out, then pop it in the oven to watch it shrink and harden.
The pre-packed kits have all been claimed, but you can join with your own supplies from home:
- Shrinky Dinks frosted sheets (or any similar off-brand product, including recycled #6 plastic)
- Colored pencils or colorful permanent markers
- An oven or toaster oven (not a stand-up toaster)
- A small baking tray and foil or parchment paper
- Adult supervision
