Take & Make Kits

Take home fun activities and creative crafts with a Take & Make Kit from Allen Public Library!

Before You Register

  1. Confirm that the kit is for your child’s age. Kits have designated ages based on their respective difficulty and the developmental ability required to complete the activity.
  2. Only register once for each child. Duplicate registrations with the same child’s name and age will be deleted.
  3. Pay close attention to pickup times. Pickup will be available during the date range in each kit’s description. Kits unclaimed after the scheduled pickup week will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.

Pickup Times

Kits can be picked up through curbside pickup or at the Children's Desk on the pickup dates listed.

Grab & Go Craft Bags

Pick up Grab & Go Craft Bags at the Children's Desk during your visits to the Library. No registration required. Bags are available first come, first served for preschool and grades K-6 while supplies last.
