HOMEWOOD, AL (WBRC) - Learning while having fun. That’s what happens every Wednesday afternoon at the Homewood Public Library.
It’s part of a program in the children’s department at the library called Kids Create.
“Each Kids Create is different,” said Cristina Castor, a Library Technician. “We have Crafternoon, we have Sewing Circle, we have LEGO Club, and it all varies every Wednesday.”
On this Wednesday, the children created winter terrariums, which are winter scenes in a mason jar.
“It involves Insta-Snow. They have little animals and little bottle brush trees,” explained Castor. “They can glue them, and they have their little winter terrarium.”
Castor said every class and project is aimed at giving children a learning experience and growing their skills. For example, the Insta-Snow in the winter terrarium project involves science. According to Castor, the classes also grow the kids' imagination and artistic abilities. Kids Create is just one of the many classes for children at the library.
“We have story time, so that benefits literacy; motor skills too for the little ones,” said Castor.
Kids Create is held every Wednesday from 3:30 p.m. until 4:15 p.m. for kids kindergarten up to 5th grade. If you want to get your child involved, Castor said you can call the library or stop by. She said there are calendars available at any of the desks inside the library.
