Get crafty at Bixby Library

VERGENNES — The holidays are a great time for children to exercise their creativity muscles and occupy their hands with seasonal craft activities, and the Bixby Memorial Library is here to help.

The library at 258 Main St. in Vergennes has two such activities on schedule for consecutive Saturdays next month. First is “Build a wreath!” on Dec. 11, from noon to 2 p.m. Youngsters (recommended for age 15 and up) will gather in the Otter Creek Room and access a wreath base, wire and pine boughs — everything they’ll need to start a seasonal wreath. Participants are asked to bring their own decorations to use on their own projects and share with others.

Space is limited, so sign up by calling 802-877-2211 or emailing [email protected]

The following week, Dec. 18, from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Bixby will host the workshop “Ornament Making for Children” in the Community Room.

You can either take and make these ornaments at home, or drop in and create them at the library. Put together an adorable snowman ornament with a wooden clothespin, ribbon scarf and pom-pom earmuffs. There’s also a fun penguin ornament to create from a round, painted ball with googly eyes and felt stomach, feet, and beak. Bring your imagination.
