Family Activity: December Packets!
December packets are being given out now through the end of the month at your local library branches! This month’s packets have wonderful holiday themed coloring sheets, activity sheets, suggested reading lists and supplies to make FIVE different arts and crafts projects. The craft projects include a Rocking Snowman, a Candy Cane, a Reindeer, a Circle Ornament and a Hot Coca mug craft. Also included in each packet is a wonderful holiday gift – a free book! So stop by one of the branches of NERL TODAY to get your free packet! Our branches also have book selections for Teen and Young Adult readers and a new set of more detailed coloring sheets for teens and adults who enjoy the relaxing pastime.
One of the more popular activities in our packets have been the monthly Scavenger Hunt sheets. The December Scavenger Hunt includes things to look out for as you spend time outside or drive around town – poinsettias, strings of lights and silver bells, just to name a few. You can view and print a copy of our Scavenger Hunt here: ScavengerHunt or pick up a copy from your local NERL public library branch.
Another sheet in our packets this month is a Reindeer Race that involves rolling a die to move up a number line. You can even make reindeer markers out of clothes pins to use in the race. All you need are clothes pins, googly eyes (or draw on eyes with a marker), a pom pom nose (or draw your own), and pipe cleaners to make the antlers.
