It's October! Our teen craft of the month is one I am really excited about. We'll be making our own bubble tea and drawing cute things on bookmarks and postcards! You can register for one of these Take and Makes to complete from home by clicking here!
Bubble tea, or sometimes referred to as boba tea, is a milk or green tea with tapioca balls on the bottom, also known as pearls, and lots of ice. It is served cold with a giant straw and has become super popular in the US. Bubble tea was first created in Taiwan and its popularity spread over East Asia before immigrants brought their delicious drink here and made many Americans have happy tummies.
I have never made Bubble tea before, so I am excited to try this recipe and am excited to share it with you! Included in the kit are pens, blank bookmarks, and postcards to drawn cute creatures on or whatever you like! I've created a list below of some of my favorite new drawing books by Angela Nguyen and LuLu Mayo we recently got in here at the library!
If you register for a Take and Make kit, your kit will include everything you need to make your bubble tea at home, along with a drawing pen, bookmarks and postcards, and a book list of the drawing books.
