Check in here every Friday for a new Design Challenge. We will provide you with ideas for a full summer of fun things to make and do. It is all part of summer fun for kids and teens at the Kitsap Regional Library.
This blog post is by the Bainbridge Island Library intern, Morgan.
For the 9th design challenge you will be crafting with paper cups! Who knew you could do so much more than just drink water or have a latte with these little guys!
There are several projects to choose from — or do them all!
Create mini piñatas for an impromptu party!
Craft some daisies to hang on the wall or to give to a friend.
Make a fire breathing dragon!
Make your own penguin for some refreshingly cool vibes this summer.
Make a paper-apple to hold a gift or decorate your house!
Before starting, find a picture book that is complementary to your craft at the library!
“Pinata!” by Rebecca Emberley will get you started.
For the dragon lovers check out “Dragons love tacos” by Adam Rubin.
If you are making a penguin check out “Penguin” by Polly Dunbar.
If you are making apples check out “Ten Apples Up On Top” By Theo LeSieg (Dr. Seuss).
Check out our online catalog for any other subject of picture books you might enjoy! (To refine your search click on “Options set- Change” and select a target audience like “Primary”)
We’d love to see what you come up with. Email your photos to Digital Branch Manager, Jean Charters at firstname.lastname@example.org for possible inclusion in a future blog post (under 1 MB file size please) or stop by your library to show off your creativity.
