All ages are welcome to participate in Earth Day activities at the Blue Earth County Library in Mankato on Sat., April 12 from 10 a.m. to noon. The event will take place in the Lovelace Children’s Wing of the library where there will be activities, craft projects, informational displays, refreshments and a special visit from Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Stomper mascot. Adult participants will also have the opportunity to be part of a drawing to win a free rain barrel with a retail value of $140.
Some of the craft activities that participants can make from recycled materials are rock buddies, CD insects, tube trees, rain sticks and more. Other activities will include environmental games, face-painting, airbrushed tattoos, a special story time and a coloring contest. The 2014 Earth Day celebration has something for everyone to learn about keeping the earth clean while having fun.
