Every year, the Antioch Homeschoolers look forward to October. It's pumpkin decorating time! Paint, fabric, and beads were among the many things used to decorate pumpkins of every size and shape. It's amazing what you get when you put together a child and a pumpkin.
If you would like to try your hand at pumpkin decorating, the Library has many books to give you some ideas.
Smithville's Homeschoolers @ the Library made 3-D snowflakes this December. Before the class, branch staff made a few to help the instructor determine what steps might be the most difficult. We hung these staff "flakes" over our circulation desk. Whoa! Everyday a patron would ask, "Did you make those? They're great! Do you have a pattern I could copy?" So, we thought we would share our snowflake fun with everyone.
All you need is 6 sheets of paper, a ruler, pencil, scissors, glue or tape, and a stapler.
