Everyone is Welcome! Please Join us to celebrate Kodomo ni Hi with bilingual storytime, Origami, and Japanese Calligraphy!

This Japanese holiday celebrates children and their individual characteristics, so let’s enjoy it!

Immediately following the reading of the beloved folktale “Momotaro” by the Himawari Club, we will help everyone to make their own Origami Samurai Helmets!

During the Origami (paper folding) and Japanese Calligraphy session, you can have your name put on your new Kabuto or make a sign with a word that is special to you.

Of course, we will happy to assist you with your amazing Origami creations.

Schedule of events:

10:00 – 10:30  Story Time by Himawari Club

10:30 – 11:00  Making Origami Kabuto(Samurai Helmet)

11:00 – 12:00  Making Origami Koinobori craft (carp streamers) and Japanese Calligraphy

Many Japanese families fly carp streamers (Koinobori 鯉のぼり). These streamers are carp-shaped windsocks that flutter in the spring breeze.

Please be sure to keep an eye out for the Koinobori when you come into the library front door, they will help to guide you to the Adams room (first hallway on your left from front entry).
