Photos: Children create faux stained glass masterpieces at Willmar Public Library homeschool hour – West Central Tribune


WILLMAR

— Windows throughout Willmar will be a little more vibrant following a homeschool hour program at the Willmar Public Library Wednesday afternoon.

More than a dozen youngsters came out to pick a unique faux stained glass design provided by the library. Their job was to take the transparent canvases and make them pop through the use of a smorgasbord of paint color options. Some of the creations included dinosaurs, Winnie the Pooh, dragonflies and more. The program was led by Willmar Public Library children’s librarian Alyssa Lennander.

Homeschool Hour is a monthly gathering of homeschooled students and their parents at the library, where they do a wide range of fun activities.

The gatherings are held on the third Wednesday of each month beginning at 2 p.m. at the Willmar Public Library.
