The Southborough Library is holding an Animal Origami event for children next week. On Wednesday, October 11th, children can come in and learn how to fold paper into animal shapes.

The art of paper folding will take place in the Eaton Meeting Room at 4:00 pm.  The session will be led by Robin Batchelder from Sparks! Art Studio. 

Her plan is to work with kids on some basic animal shapes and provide instruction sheets to help them keep up the fun from home.

My kids loved making jumping frogs when they were younger. And I found a cute example of a simple mouse online, too.

Register by stopping by the Children’s Library desk or calling 508-485-5031.

Updated (10/3/17 12:13 pm): It turns out registration is required for this free craft session.
