Take-n-Make #1: The Color Red

Well, we've wrapped up Spring Story Time and are gearing up for tons of fun summer programming (you can check out the summer schedule in the left-hand column of this blog, or pick up a paper copy at your local library to hang on the fridge!).  Until things kick off on June 1, though, I'm going to give our readers who didn't make it to Spring Story Time a chance to view a season's worth of Take-&-Make craft sheets- just the thing to keep the kiddos entertained over these next few weeks! 

Check out today's Take-&-Make, focused on "The Color Red".
