Join us for An Evening of Recipes for Fun! Don’t worry, this isn’t a fancy-shmancy black tie affair; this is is a night out with your favorite library folks where you’ll get to enjoy a story, some songs, hands-on activities and a free meal as you and your young child explore early learning skills. But wait, there’s more! You’ll even get a FREE book. We hope you join us!

DIY Kinetic Sand from “Recipes For Fun”  

Ingredients

  • 2 parts baking soda
  • 1 part baking powder
  • 1 part dishwashing liquid
  • Mixing spoon
  • Large bowl

Instructions
Mix the baking soda, baking powder and dishwashing liquid in a large bowl. Stir the mixture until a foamy substance forms. Enjoy playing with the fluffy foam! When you’re done playing, add more baking powder until it feels sandy or doughy.

When children squeeze, pinch and mash the kinetic sand, they are strengthening the small muscles in their hands. These muscles help children to better grip items such as scissors and kitchen utensils.

When I was little I loved being read to. Now that I am older I still love being read to! Basically I like consuming stories any way possible--movies, tv, and of course books!
