Kids Explore: Dominoes!

Posted on

Tuesday was our first Kids Explore for the summer, the theme was dominoes and we had a full house! The kids participated in a domino scavenger hunt, selected their own set to take home and keep, and learned the basic game of draw dominoes. During the last few minutes, the kids voted on the kinds of programs they’d like to do for the remainder of the summer in Kids Explore. That list will be posted here and on our Facebook page (Tredyffrin Children) shortly.

Kids Explore is for ages 6-10 and meets each Tuesday from 2:00-3:30 through August 9. Registration is not required, but space is limited to 18 kids, so tickets will be given out starting at 1:30 each week.

Summer Reading Kickoff Party

Posted on

What a fun day we had kicking off our Summer Reading Program. We registered more that 130 friends and had a great time! This year we featured a Story Walk. We walked through the beautiful Strafford Park and read the story, From Head to Toe by Eric Carle. We did activities at each stop. At the end we enjoyed making fun corner bookmarks.

Didn’t make the party? Don’t worry you can still register for our Summer Reading Club at the Children’s Department.

Each week during Summer Reading we will have a new Guessing Jar Item. The first week was a big jar of marbles. How many?? The grand total is 280.

We had 199 friends who guessed anywhere from 1 to 1,000,000,000 marbles. We did have one winner. Her name is Kate and she guessed 267. She wins all 280 marbles.

Stop by the Children’s Depratment this week to guess how many Scrabble tiles are in our jar. We will announce winners on Mondays.

Happy Guessing.

Happy Birthday Eric Carle!
