(To watch a how-to video on making a snowbuddy, go to this link: How to Make a Snowbuddy.)
Do you wanna build a snowman? This month, Wolfner's Mail and Make participants will receive a craft kit for building their own indoor “snowbuddy”. Kits will be sent out the week of January 30. Every other month this year, a different, unique craft kit will be sent to Mail and Make subscribers. The kits will include supplies needed to make the craft, large-print instructions with the link to an online how-to video, and a list of recommended books tied to the theme of the project.
We would love to see pictures of your finished snowbuddies! Photos should be of the project only, to protect the safety of our patrons. Please email your Mail and Make photos to [email protected].
Ready to sign a patron up to receive Mail and Make kits? Participants must be registered patrons of Wolfner Library. Signup for Mail and Make can be found at the folliowing link: Wolfie's Mail and Make Registration Form.
