Saturday’s Craft was making masks, and lots of kids and parents joined in the fun. Here are two of our merry mask makers:
The Mardi Gras masks were a big hit! Doesn’t this mask look awesome?! And here’s another cool one: We all had a blast learning how to do the Zydeco Shuffle! Then it was snack time. Mmmmmm! Those home-made cupcakes were de-luscious! Thanks to everyone who came to our very first Mardi Gras party! We had such a good time, we may just have to make it an annual event! See you next year!

Saturday Crafts – March 8 at 11 am
Join us on Wednesday for our very first Mardi Gras Party – here at The Field Library Children’s Room! We’ve got lots of fun planned – including some special stories and a cool Mardi Gras mask-making craft! Did we mention that Mrs. Soto will be making her famous multi-colored cupcakes?! Yum! And what would a party be without dancing? Yup, you’ll get to listen to some great Zydeco music and we’ll teach you some Zydeco dance steps. Kids will even get FREE Mardi Gras beads! So don’t miss out on all the fun! Laissez les bons temps rouler!
A huge thank you to Beth Thompson for volunteering to do a papier mache workshop in the Children’s Room! Everyone LOVED creating and decorating their animals. Messy as it was (yup, it was!!), it was so cool to see what we could create using simple stuff like toilet paper rolls, paper plates and newspaper. Here are a few of our creations: How tall can you make it before it’s the leaning tower?
What a nice beak, birdy!
Beth did a fabulous job helping our young artists bring their animals to life! And everybody left the workshop inspired and anxious to try more papier mache at home!
