  1. Art in the Park

    June 24, 2021, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM @ Redbud Park

    Kids won’t want to miss out on a fun summer series we’re calling Art in the Park, hosted at Red Bud Park. Come out and find us by the big blue flag, across from the playground area (weather permitting) and at each session we’re going to bring out a host of materials so that youth can create some awesome outdoor art. Each session will feature a different art project to make and kids are going to love it. Feel free to bring something to sit on, but don’t miss out on the outdoorsy fun!

  2. Play & Learn at Mockingbird Branch

    June 24, 2021, 2:00 PM - 2:30 PM @ Mockingbird Branch Library

    Children learn while they play! One of the latest trends in libraries is to provide a time of sensory play for young children. Exposing children to sensory play helps them develop and refine the use of their senses. Stimulating these senses helps children develop cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional, physical, and creative skills.
