Presented in partnership with Project ART
Bring your favorite box of crayons and join ProjectArt artist Alex Zastera for a storytime and art activity based on the beloved book, The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt. Start with a storytime reading and stick around for a fun activity that will show your crayons just how much you love them! All you need is some blank paper and crayons!
