Toys to Make Together at your Local Public Library

By Leah Ryan
Arrowhead Library System

MOUNTAIN IRON – Let’s make some toys!

This month, area libraries will be offering Handmade Toy Take & Create Art Kits as the Arrowhead Library System’s (ALS) newest Legacy event, available December 4-30.

This art experience, created by 321 Art Stu­dio, explores toy making for beginners. Take & Create Art Kits will include supplies to cre­ate these four unique toys: yarn doll, string/ button spinner, swing and catch cup and craft stick catapult. Follow-along instructional vid­eos for each toy will be shared in the kit and online.

“We are looking forward to offering the Toy Kit to our patrons,” said Melody Dane, ALS Mail-A-Book Coordinator. “These kits will be welcomed by all ages since the old fash­ioned, handmade toys will bring reminiscent pleasure to our senior citizens and a fun family activity to our youngsters.”

This program is geared towards those ages 6 and up, as younger kids may need assistance, making it a great multi-generational activity.

“My youngest just turned six and I’m always looking for something to keep his hands busy,” said Leah Ryan, ALS Legacy Program Spe­cialist. “Making toys is a fun activity we can learn together! Best of all, everything we’ll need is available for free, at our local library.”

Please note, that each location has a limited number of kits. Feel free to contact your local li­brary for more information!

Kits will be distributed at the following local public libraries and ALS outreach locations:

Duluth Public Library
Ely Public Library
Grand Marais Public Library
Silver Bay Public Library
Two Harbors Public Library
Virginia Public Library
Arrowhead Library System Bookmobile
Arrowhead Library System Mail-A-Book (*patrons must qualify for Mail-A-Book services, kit may be modified in order to deliver by mail)

This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Li­brary System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cul­tural Heritage Fund. To learn more about ALS Legacy Events, visit www.alslib.info or like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/alslib­info.
