Family Fun Hour
This summer, join us every Wednesday morning at 10:30 from June 10-July 22. We will have fun exploring a different theme each week with stories, songs, fingerplays, and more! These programs are best for families with children 3-6 years of age, but older and younger children are welcome to attend.
Reserve your spot by calling Children’s Services at (815) 223-0229 x 5. These programs are part of the library’s Growing Readers program and are made possible through an early childhood grant funded by the Target Corporation.
UPDATE 6/2/15: Wednesday Family Fun Hour sessions are full. Due to overwhelming interest, we have added a Tuesday session from 10:30 AM-11:30 AM beginning June 9. Registration required.
June 10: Constructing Fun
Get ready to pretend you are on a construction site! We’ll sing our “Construction Worker Song,” act like a crane, and read fun stories like “Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site.” We will make a bulldozer at the craft table.
June 17: Rock Out!
Warm up your voice and get your air guitar ready, because today, we are rock stars! We will read “Goldi-rocks and the Three Bears” and other stories to teach us the best way to be rock stars, and play Freeze Dance. At the craft table, we’ll make xylophones. If you want, come dressed like a rock star.
June 24: Amazing Art
July 1: Superhero Sidekick Training Academy
July 8: The Rhythm of the Forest
This event is co-hosted with Peoria Park District. We will learn all about forest animals and the sounds they make during this fun, interactive event!
Can’t sit still? Then you’re in luck–today’s theme is all about dance! We will dance to silly songs, and read about dinosaurs and hippos that like to dance, too. At the craft table, we’ll make dance ribbons.
July 22: Play and Pretend
Today will be extra fun because we will be reading, singing, and talking all about playtime! We will read “Let’s Do Nothing!” and let our imaginations run wild. At the craft table, we will make a bicycle.
