MP Fun Fest Committee to sponsor Make and Take event
by Natalie Juns
MAPLE PARK—Kids and parents alike will enter into a fun evening filled with creative crafts and holiday gift making at the Make and Take Event, sponsored by the Fun Fest Committee, on Wednesday, Dec. 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the American Legion, located at 203 Main St. in Maple Park.
This is the third year that the Fun Fest Committee has hosted the Make and Take event to provide holiday activities for kids who live in Maple Park and the surrounding area. Each year, the committee has noticed more kids in the community coming out and participating in the festivities.
Kids will be able to participate in the 8-to-10 different craft stations at their leisure. Crafts will include Christmas ornament decorating, coloring, decorating gift bags and boxes, writing letters to Santa and more.
Lemonade and refreshments will be provided. There is no cost associated with the event, but donations will be accepted for the Fun Fest Committee.
Beth Miller, Fun Fest Committee member and Maple Park Resident, helps organize the craft stations for the event and supports finding more activities and opportunities for kids in Maple Park.
“One thing that is lacking in Maple Park is activities for kids,” Miller said. “Our Make and Take event provides a fun evening for kids to do crafts and make gifts for their families.”
