Wednesday Crafternoons

It’s Wednesday. Let’s “Secret Agent”

Rocky Kidnapping

Surveillance Footage

The building is closed but the library is open. 

And what's this? OH NO! Where's Rocky?! 

Our intel shows intruders have kidnapped our beloved mascot, Rocky the Racoon.

They were last traced heading southbound on Lee.

Agent 1501 needs your help! 

It is YOUR MISSION to retreive Rocky and stop the culprits in their tracks.

Are you ready? 

Let's hone your skills with some reflex training before we send you out into the field.  

A makeshift laser beam grid will do.

Find some paper streamers (yarn or toilet paper works too) and tape.

Done? Let's get started.

Step 1

Step 1

Scout out a good location.

A wide open area leaves room for some flexibility. For a real challenge, try a hallway.

Step 2

Step 2

Tape one end of your streamer to the wall. 

Pick a spot high or low. It's your call.

Step 3

Step 3

Angle it up or down towards the opposite side. 

Measure out enough to reach the other wall.

Then, repeat Step 2. 

Step 4

Step 4

Layer your streamers. 

Continue adding streamers at various angles until there's enough to pose some obstacles.



If you can pass through the area without bending any body part, it's too easy.

And remember, practice makes perfect. Multiple attempts don't count against you. 

The best agents simply aim to succeed. 

Track your progress through some photos, tag them #DPCrafternoons and post your results with us on Facebook and Instagram. 

Ready for the real thing? You can do it!

Here are some more tools and resources to prep you for this mission.
