Crafts at the Oakwood Winter Market

Oakwood Winter MarketCrafts and Activities

Join us inside the Elf Shoppe (downtown in the Shops of Oakwood between Preen and Talbots) at the Oakwood Winter Market. The Library will host a variety of free crafts and activities for different ages. For the oldest kids, a make-and-take snowflake science experiment. We will encourage older kids to try their hand at Silver Bell Spelling. And for the young ones, we will be making paper plate penguins. 

The Elf Shoppe at the Oakwood Winter Market is a fun, festive place for children to shop for affordable, hand-made gifts for their families. All profits from the Elf Shoppe go to support Oakwood City Schools.
