Library Game Night for Kids

Join Family Game Night @ the Atascocita Branch Library

January 25th @ 7:00 pm

As a child, one of my favorite games was Candy Land.  I must have played it a thousand times...maybe more. My imagination pulled me into an imaginary world, and I could play for hours. 

Children are able to travel through a peppermint forest, gumdrop mountains, and chocolate swamp?  What child wouldn't love a candy adventure? They also learning valuable skills such as counting, color recognition, and vocabulary.

Children created watercolor snowflakes at storytime this week.  Afterwards, we sprinkled fairy dust (salt) on top of them. This technique is used to make batik fabric.  The children had so much fun that we will surely do this project again!
