Grandparents, if you want something really fun for your little ones, taking in this free program at the Quesnel Library will be most enjoyable for the whole family. It begins July 5 and registration is ongoing.
Every Tuesday – Friday, Freya Jonasson will greet the children. 3 – 5 years old start at 10:15 a.m., 6 – 8 years at 11:30 a.m. and the 9 –12 years group comes in at 2 p.m. It will build their imagination and encourage them to read. The themes are Play around the world; Planes, trains and automobiles; Explore your back yard; Discover the Universe; Travel using your imagination; Wander into the past which includes dinosaurs; and Tour the World.
Children will be given a reading project each week, so you grandparents can help with that. They also get a prize for completing the project.
Then there are games, crafts and activities.
This program is funded by the CRD, BC Library Association, Libraries Branch, Ministry of Education and RBC Foundation.
A special day, July 13 children will participate in: Massive mark up – 3D printing; pop bottle races; coding; and drawbot.
These pictures will give you an idea of how fun it will be.
