Gel Print Butterflies and Children’s Book Week

We made these beautiful butterflies in April’s Creativity Lab!  We used gel plates, acrylic paint, and different items to achieve these unique designs and textures.

The butterflies made a great display for Children’s Book Week, which we will celebrate for two weeks – April 29 through May 11.

Children's Book week

Over the weeks, we’ll have some great programs and fun activities.  There will be lots of Very Hungry Caterpillar inspired games and crafts out around the department, so drop in and enjoy!

Our next Creativity Lab will be on Thursday, May 9th where our friends from the Figge will teach us how to make Tiffany-inspired window art.  Be sure to register for that one!

Cupcake Decorating Recap

We had a wild Valentine’s Day at MPL!  During Creativity Lab, we decorated cupcakes provided to us very generously by Brandy at the Java Lab.

We also made cupcake boxes and gift bags for those who wanted to give their cupcakes as Valentine’s gifts.  How sweet!

Check out the masterpieces-

So much creative energy!


This frosting unicorn would look great on a cake!

Some of the older kiddos took part in the PNG dissection class here at the library that evening and dissected a sheep heart.  Don’t worry – they washed their hands before decorating!

Join us for our next Creativity Lab on Thursday, March 14th at 6 pm for grades K-5.
