Children at Seymour Library devised their own shimmering, swirling vortexes of color — contained in the confines of a plastic bottle.
Children and parents alike poured corn syrup and glitter into bottles half-filled with water to make their creations at the Auburn library’s Snowstorm in a Bottle event Friday. Laura Taylor, a clerk at the library who runs some of the children’s events in the building, came up with the event after searching online for fun crafts for children.
Before the event began, Taylor laid out several bottles with water inside on a table in one of the children’s areas of the library, with one finished snowstorm out for demonstration. Taylor, who had a container of disinfecting wipes by the table at all times in case of any sticky glitter-filled accidents, said she loves seeing the satisfied looks on children’s faces when they make crafts from start to finish without their parent’s intervention.
