Kids can enjoy storytime and a free craft project based on a famous local house at The Safety Harbor Public Library.
On Saturday (Dec. 22) at 11 a.m, author Katie Bush will discuss her book “1206 Third Street,” a story about the transformation of an ordinary house into a work of art through color, patterns, and imagination.
A bowling ball painting craft project for children ages 2 and up will follow the book presentation.
The Whimzey House, an artistic project over 20 years in the making, has become a popular destination for Bay area visitors and has been featured on RoadsideAmerica.com as well as on MTV’s “Cribs.” It’s frequently referred to as the “Bowling Ball House” in reference to its colorful display of repurposed bowling balls.
This event is free and open to the public.
The Library is located at 101 Second St. N., Safety Harbor. For more information, call 724-1525, x112.
