Ready-To-Read Storytime for 5 - 8 year olds

4:00pm

Children who have entered grade school journey towards being readers, but they still love listening to stories, and doing so aids in literacy skills! This program is designed to support your emergent reader by sharing a sample of stories & series that are geared toward various levels of early readers, & get them excited to use their new reading skills on the sequels later. Stories are followed by a craft, and we finish up the 60 minute session with a snack.

Shark Soap Making!

1:30pm

Each participant will make their own soapy creation using glycerin based soap and adding colors, glitter and scents. There is no lye exposure since the process does not involve traditional soap making techniques. Once the concoction has cooled slightly, we will add cosmetic grade glitter, colors, essential oil (optional), embed the rubber shark bath toys, and decorate the tops with white soap curls. At the end of the workshop each participant will take their handmade creation home, it can be unmolded the following day and used right away.

Since the soap can get hot, a parent or guardian must be present for children under the age of 10 to lend a helping hand.

Space is limited, please click below to register.
