June 6 & 8 Games from Long Ago
Before TV, Legos or video games, children didn’t have many toys, so they invented games using their imaginations and a few simple objects. Join us for lots of fun as we
“play” games and activities that were enjoyed long ago.
June 13 & 15 What’s Old?
Let’s discover what being older means, for both things and people.
How should we treat older things and people? Through stories, conversation and activities we’ll think about what it means to be “older” in our world today.
June 20 & 22 Let’s Make Copies
How did people make paper copies before the copy machines we use today in our homes, schools, and businesses? We’ll experiment with copying by hand, tracing, and using a hectograph.
June 27 & 29 Aesop’s Fables
Fables are short little stories, often about animals, that teach us important life lessons. Come listen and help tell the story.
July 6 (Wed only) Our Grand Old Flag
The flag of the United States has played a very important part in our American history. What is the history of the flag, its significance and meaning, and how can we respect and care for it? Military veterans will share what the flag means to them. Help us create a flag art display.
