All New...Wolfie's March-April Mail and Make Kits



Our March-April Mail and Make project is just in time for spring breezes.  This kit has participants creating their own carp kite, a colorful windsock with streamers inspired by Japanese tradition.  Included with the large-print instructions in the kit is a list of recommended books for those who would like to learn more about the country of Japan and its people.

A how-to video is available at the following link: How To Make Wolfie's Carp Kite

We would love to see photos of your finished projects!  Photos should be of the project only, to protect the safety of our patrons.  Please email your Mail and Make photos to [email protected].
