Spring Break at the Weatherford Public Library
Spring Break 2012 is just around the corner! For parents looking for activities to keep kids busy, and for kids not looking to sit around the house all day, there is a great alternative: Spring Break at the Weatherford Public Library.
Monday, March 12 is for the creative genius in every child. ARTstravaganza is back! Two separate sessions offer experiences for different age groups. At 10:30 am, kids in 1st to 3rd grade can indulge in the most forbidden of arts – thumb-painting! At 2 pm, children in 4th to 6th grade become art sleuths, learning about art through amazing forgeries.
Tuesday, March 13 is for the mad scientist in all of us. Wacky Science returns to prove that scientific inquiry isn’t just about stodgy old people in lab coats – it’s about the mess! Two one-hour sessions offer experiments appropriate to different ages. Kids in 1st to 3rd grade will learn about the properties of light at 10:30am. At 2 pm, children in grades 4th to 6th will solve a heinous crime using cool experiments.
Toddlers and preschoolers! Want to know what lies on the other side of the rainbow? On Wednesday March 14 at 10:30am, join us to celebrate the beauty of nature in Rainbow All Around Me. Children aged 4 to 6 will find books and activities best suited to their development in Preschool Storytime and kids from birth to 3 can enjoy great songs and stories just for them at Toddler Time.
There is no better way to get ready for Spring Break weekend than to catch the blockbuster films that enchant kids and adults alike. Come to Best of the Box Office on Thursday March 15 for two opportunities to enjoy a family favorite lasting under two hours. At 10:30am, join us for the latest adventure of the most unlikely martial arts expert - a wise-cracking panda that must confront an enemy from his past. At 2pm, a fairy tale classic is reimagined as only Disney can do it – everyone will love the story of a girl in a tower and the hapless thief she entraps in order to find the wonderful lights she spies every year on her birthday.
