Sunday Fun Day: Botanical Coloring & Collage

March 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sunday, March 24, 2024 –2:00pm to 4:00pm

Storytime Room

For a celebration of Women’s History Month in March, let’s do a craft to recognize Maria Sibylla Merian, one of the most influential female scientists in entomology (the study of insects). Her illustrations and observations of the life cycles of insects, particularly moths and butterflies, greatly helped people to understand metamorphosis. We’ll have designs to color and arrange to create a botanical drawing-style collage!

Sunday Fun Days are suitable for all-ages, but younger children should make the crafts together with caregivers. One craft per child please.

Los Sunday Fun Days son para todas las edades, pero los niños más pequeños deben hacer las manualidades junto con los cuidadores. Una manualidad por niño por favor.

为了庆祝三月妇女历史月,让我们用手工制作来纪念一位昆虫学领域富有影响力的女科学家玛丽亚·西比拉·梅里安 (Maria Sibylla Merian)。她对飞蛾和蝴蝶生命周期的观察和研究极大地帮助了人们了解蛾类昆虫的体态变化。今天我们将提供模板让您进行着色和排列,创作出植物绘画风格的拼贴画!

If you need disability-related accommodations in order to participate in this event, please contact the Library.

This event is open to the public.
