Friday, May 9 @ 10:30
Friday, May 16 @ 10:30
Friday, May 23 @ 10:30
Friday, May 30 @ 10:30

Please join us every Friday morning at 10:30 a.m. for a storytime and craft. The storytime is free for all ages, though geared toward toddler and preschoolers. From 10:30-11, we offer a storytime craft special: $5 for two ornamental craft bases. If your child would like to do something other than the ornamental craft, they are welcome to choose a regularly-priced ($12) base.

The books we read each week are on loan from Annie Bloom's Books, right next door. Stop on by to see these and other great titles!

First Friday in Multnomah Village

Friday, May 2 | 5 p.m.-9 p.m.

We're open late for crafts and treats as we participate in Multnomah Village's First Friday of the month tradition. Special: Only $10 per crafter tonight - and the treats are free! (One base only; each additional base is $6.)
Somewhere over the rainbow, the land of Oz is still thriving and waiting for Dorothy's return. Join her, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion - plus a whole new group of friends - as they follow the yellow brick road on another adventure (complete with flying monkeys!).

As usual, we encourage everyone to dress up, and come prepared to make an OZ character of your very own to take home for just $10 (stay tuned for craft prototype photos coming soon).

No RSVP required. Watch the trailer now!

Our first themed BYOB night is upon us!

Join us for $12 and receive a pack of
4 square recycled-paper cards and envelopes
for you to decorate.

Bring your own supplies or use some of ours - we'll have stamps, paint markers, glitter, decorative papers, and more! If card-making isn't your thing, you can always choose to make one of our other crafts. And don't forget to bring your own libations!

Grandparents Day!

Saturday, May 17 | 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Join us on the third Saturday of every month to celebrate that special bond between the generations. We are offering a two-for-one craft special for grandparents joining us with their grandchildren. Both of you can make a craft while you're here!

Disney's MALEFICENT Movie Release Party

Saturday, May 24 | 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Before Sleeping Beauty took a nap and was kissed awake, there was a young woman who was betrayed. That young woman became the Maleficent we know from the cartoon movie who puts the sleeping curse on Aurora. But who was she originally? Why was she betrayed? And will grown-up Aurora be the key to saving the darkness that is spreading over the kingdom?

As usual, we encourage everyone to dress up, and come prepared to make a Maleficent-themed craft of your very own to take home for just $10 (stay tuned for craft prototype photos coming soon).

No RSVP required. Watch the trailer now!
