We’ve all been there: waking up at the start of our week with a case of the “Mondays”. With the weekend coming to an end and a whole slew of tasks waiting for us at work or school, Mondays have certainly garnered a bad reputation over the years. However, with just a bit of color and creativity to brighten your day, Mondays can become your favorite day of the week!
Every Monday night, you and your little artist are invited to the Trenton Public Library for Monday Night Crafts. Each week, families will be welcomed into the library’s children’s room for a new creation each week. From DIY snow globes to jewelry making, painting, and more, there’s no shortage of creative fun to be had. A hands-on way to kick off your week, these weekly crafts are certain to have you looking forward to your Mondays in no time.
When it comes to your child’s development, crafting isn’t just a fun activity to pass the time – it’s an incredible avenue to unlock their imaginative spark and support your child’s growing minds. First and foremost, arts and crafts can be a fun way for your child to cultivate their fine motor skills. Many crafts require little ones to use small muscles in the hands and fingers, encouraging skills such as hand-eye coordination. Crafting also encourages cognitive development, empowering your little one to think creatively, problem solve, and cultivate their originality. Finally, arts and crafts can be a key tool in supporting your child’s mental health. Art gives creators young and old the opportunity to express themselves, sort through their feelings, and practice mindfulness in a tangible way. With countless reasons to get creative, crafting can be a major win for every member of the family.
Monday Night Crafts are a part of the jam packed calendar of activities offered by the Trenton Public Library each week. From English as a Second Language classes to movie nights and everything in between, there’s something for every member of the family to enjoy. With countless books, classes, events, and more to choose from, Trentonians have a whole world of resources at their fingertips.
