Spring vacation break is right around the corner for the Timberlane District, and we have plenty of events planned for the youth in your life. If your idea of vacation is staycation, then the Kimball Library has plans for your children and teens. See below offerings for the second part of the week. Did you miss the first article? ALL press releases sent to CTN are posted on http://kimballlibrary.blogspot.com.
FAIRY TALE SCAVENGER HUNT: Drop in on April 29th or 30th from 10:30AM to 2:30PM and go on a ‘Fairy Tale Scavenger Hunt’. Search for missing treasures throughout the library right out of your favorite tales! Guess the stories from the clues and earn a surprise for your very own happily ever after. J
TAKE ‘N BAKE TIMES TWO: Our last ‘Take ‘n Bake’ was so popular that we’re offering two unique times for the same activity so MORE kids can attend! Register, then join us on Thursday, April 28th, at either 3pm OR 6pm (not both). Here's what's cooking – we will use a simple recipe for 'Snickerpoodles' to combine, take home, and bake. Yummy treats will await you to enjoy in your very own home. Bring an apron if you have one & let's create some delightful treats! Registration is required via website, in person or over the phone. Residents have priority.
KIDZ COLORING AND PAINTING: Register the little ones for a free-time coloring and painting time on Thursday, April 28th, anytime between 10:30am and 12:30pm. Children are welcome to stay as long as they can focus on the activity. We put out our best paint kits and lots of different pages to choose from.
T/WEEN T-SHIRT BOOK BAGS: Get the key to cool with an awesome DIY t-shirt book bag. We'll be making t-shirt totes on Wednesday, April 27th, at 6:30pm that will have you styling and the envy of all your friends.
You MUST bring--at least ONE t-shirt that would be large enough for books. (I'm sure you'll have time to make more than one, so the more you bring the better!) AND a positive I CAN DO IT attitude.
You CAN bring--fabric scissors, (the more sharp fabric scissors everyone brings the less waiting around time for everyone), embellishments (safety pins, pony beads, ribbon--anything you can attach to your bag) AND friends. Please register ALL participants so I know how many tweens to plan for. This is for grades 4-12, only.
CUPCAKE WARS: Register Grades 4-12 for Tuesday, April 26th, 6:30-7:45pm! Each participant must prepare 6 un-decorated cupcakes prior to the event. You must bring all your decorating tools and supplies that you will need. AT the event, you’ll have 30 minutes to decorate them all. Two of the cupcakes will be used for judging—the other portion will be shared with other contestants and judges. Cupcakes will be judged on the following criteria: Appearance, taste, creativity, clean station, and presentation to judges. Participant may make any flavor of cupcake desired but, please stay within the theme of the event ‘GET IN THE GAME” in anticipation of summer reading events!
The winner will get a ‘sweet’ prize. Parents, this is for kids and supposed to be fun and not highly competitive. The t/weens are expected to do their own baking and decorating.
QUESTIONS? ASK Kathy Watson. This event is in partnership with Bre’s Ice Creamery! Sweet!
