Paper Snowflakes

Sunday, January 31st


If the snow won’t fall for us, we will make our own snow! Join us for an afternoon of crafting and learn how to make paper snowflakes! Every snowflake is different and you can experiment with how to make very simple or very intricate designs during this program!

 For both children and adults alike! If you would like, you could bring an exacto-knife and cutting mat for more intricate designs, but scissors and all other materials will be provided! 

Recommended for children 7 and up.


Pre-registration is requested but not required.  For more information or to register please contact Emma Lorusso at emma.lorusso@ct.gov or call 860-455-9534.
