Regional Resource Kits - Paper Craft Kit

No votes yet
Description: 
Wapiti Regional Library developed a set of programming kits which are loanable by the region's branch libraries. These kits give branch librarians quick & easy programming options. The Paper Craft Kit comes with supplies, instructions and examples of projects which branch librarians can use. The goal is to encourage children to use their creativity, as well as math and design skills for careful measurement and construction of their creations. Branch librarians within the region made use of the kit during the summer of 2017, with the assistance of the region's summer Programming Assistant. The kit is now in circulation and available for any branch to request.
