In need of art supplies? Our Take It & Make It kits provide most of the supplies needed for each project, but may require you to have scissors, drawing supplies, and glue or tape. If you are in need of these items, we are happy to provide your family with a free children’s art supplies kit. Please call Youth Services at 517-321-4014 x3 for more information.
