Craft Activities for the Kids


Sidewalk Chalk Art is back this year!  Join us by the Dam from 10 am to 2 pm. Students in K-12 are invited to grab some chalk and get creative. Each student will get a sidewalk section for their own creation!  Chalk will be provided but if you have special colors and tools you would like to bring, feel free.  Sign up at www.AnokaArt.com.  Walk-ups are welcome, but space is limited. This event is organized by Young Artists of Anoka and sponsored by Federal Premium Ammunition. Free SPIN ART for kids will take place at the Anoka Hennepin Credit Union booth located at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Jackson Street.
