Community Winter Snowflake Art Project

HEY KIDS!

It’s time for the Hudson Bay Park / Mayfair / Kelsey-Woodlawn Winter Snowflake Art Project for youth 2-16 years old! Your homemade snowflake will be displayed in the windows at furnaceguys Home Heating & Cooling (411-33rd St W) from mid December until January 6 (snowflake drop off location is Mayfair Library).

You can design your own paper snowflake at home and give it to staff at MAYFAIR LIBRARY from DECEMBER 5 – 18. Give library staff your name and phone number for the random draw happening on December 20 for a prize (not a contest so all youth have a chance). 1 entry per youth (you can make more than 1 snowflake, but 1 entry for the draw)

Or you can join Mayfair Library’s “Cards, Crafts and Chocolate” program on Friday, December 16 from 3:30 – 5:30 pm to make your snowflake. The library will provide all art supplies.

Have fun with your snowflake design and help bring winter cheer to the neighbourhood!
