Royal Characters Story Hour - Summer Reading Program

Our Summer Reading video and crafts this week are focused on Royal Fairytale characters! In our video this week, Ms. Karen will be reading a couple stories relating to characters like princesses and princes, and Miss Brooke will talk about our two crafts for this week: foam crowns (which come in the colors orange, yellow, red, blue, pink, green, purple, turquoise and brown, so make requests and we'll give them out first come first serve) and we also have fairy bubble wands (which come in red, orange, green, pink, purple, yellow and blue). We also have a gift this week, little princess coloring and activity books!

If you would like to reserve crafts for your children, please give us a call between 10am and 2pm this week. We will set aside the crafts you request. Then, once you have arrived, give us one more call and we will bring the crafts outside to you and leave them on the table. You can come up and get them once the employee is back in the building.

Thank you so much to everyone who has participated so far and we hope you enjoy this week's video stories and crafts!
