Unplug & Play Box Unveiling

Unplug & Play Box InvitationCome to Blackburn Park tomorrow for the unveiling of the Unplug & Play box that was created for Canada’s 150. We will start our event with Story Time in the Park at 10:30.  After story time, we will have Diane and Tori Jewel do a friendship dance. Then there will be presentations by an Early Childhood Development member  , Mayor Nancy, and Shuswap Foundation. Following that we will have our Party in the Park with CCRR!

Looking forward to playing in the park with all of you!

Builders’ Club- May 2017

We had a small but creative group for LEGO Club this month. We can also include KEVA Planks in our building now, so it looks like I’m going to have to change the name of our program.

This hilarious club is for ages 9-14 and is at 3:30 on the first Thursday of each month from October through December.

If the timer goes before the speaker finishes talking, we all get to throw a marshmallow at the speaker. After the book sharing and marshmallow throwing/eating, we play fun games like Quelf and Minute-To-Win-It.

Our final program for the fall is:
