Central Library Play and Learn 2013

Here we are back again at Play and Learn! We had really been missing our weekly visit downtown to Central Library. A lot had been going on and we had not been able to make it. Luckily we are getting back into our routine! We only got to make it to one session in January and this Play and Learn was under the Sea themed (munchkin loves sea life and I bet your kiddos do too!). 

Here's a glimpse of the fun we had:

Munchkin with Tia reading before Play and Learn starts
At the beginning of every Play and Learn they always read the kiddos a story to go along with the theme of the day. 
Next they bring out the fun and let the kids loose to explore the various activities of the day. They had stuffed animal sea creatures for the kiddos to use there imagination and play with.
They had sensory bottles that represented the beach sand, the waves from the ocean, rocks, pebbles and shells. These are always fun and easy to make at home.
They also had plenty of rubber/plastic sea creatures that munchkin had a blast with! He was playing with the shark while doing the Jaws theme. 
They had a boat made out of a cardboard box and had an area for the kids to go fishing for the alphabet. This is lots of fun and a great opportunity to do some letter learning in a creative way. 
They had it so you could match up the lower case with the upper case letters
This giant sheet of paper was set up so you could make your own seahorse and put it in the ocean along with its buddies. It was very cute! 
On our way out from having fun each kiddo could pick up a treat (treasure) to take home with them to keep! My munchkin was so happy with his treasure. 
We had lots of fun and were sad to go home. Munchkin always feels bad when its over but hes happy when I tell him we can go again next week! Play and Learn is Free to all! There is no registration so just show up ready to have fun with your kiddos.  

Right now there are Play and Learn sessions going on every Tuesday 10 am- 11:30 am through March 12 at The Woodlawn Lake community Room and every Friday 10 am -11:30 am through March 15 at Westfall Branch library

  1. Wow, that looks like so much fun!!!

  2. That looks like a lot of fun. I remember going to the library with my son when he was little. That was his favorite place for us to go. Now that he's older, I can't keep him out.

  3. That looks like it was a really really fun time! I wish they had something like that here. It is so great for the kids.

    Kids learn the most when allowed to freely play and explore.
