WEST CHICAGO – West Chicago celebrated the opening of the new movie “Muppets Most Wanted” with some Muppet-y fun at the library.

More than 30 children attended the West Chicago Public Library District’s It’s the Muppet Show program Sunday.

The event featured various activities and crafts for the kids, including a photo stage that had costumes and props for patrons to use to dress as their favorite “Muppets” characters.

At the program’s How to Draw Muppets station, visitors drew The Muppets, and a Make Your Own Muppet activity gave young patrons the opportunity to create their own Muppets using various craft supplies. Coloring sheets also were available for the library’s youngest patrons.

Episodes of “The Muppet Show” were shown in the background while kids crafted.
