There are lots of fun things to do for kids and families this holiday season at your Casa Grande and Vista Grande public libraries.
During the month of November, drop by and help us create a beautiful mosaic poster just in time for Thanksgiving.
Kids of all ages are invited to participate in this fun, collaborative activity. At first, it’s a mystery, just a blank canvas, but then you follow the color key and add stickers in the correct locations to create a beautiful fall work of art!
In December, make sure you swing by to participate in our Gingerbread Family Project. Kids will create and decorate gingerbread men based on their favorite storybook characters.
Please stop by the library to pick up your gingerbread template and decorate it with whatever materials you have available at home. Have fun and get creative! Return it to the library by Dec. 17 to be displayed.
Please include your name and the book that inspired you on the back. Some examples include Pete the Cat, Dog Man, Curious George, The Cat in the Hat, Big Bad Wolf, Captain Underpants, Charlie Brown, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Fly Guy, Harry Potter, and many, many more!
Also, don’t miss Santa and Mrs. Claus in person at Peart Park Wednesday, Dec. 15 at 2 p.m. He and Mrs. Claus will read Christmas stories and share some yummy treats. The jolly couple also will be available to take pictures with your child(ren). Please bring your own camera as you will need to take your own Santa pictures.
If you can’t make it in to see Santa in person, make sure you write him a letter. Stop by the Main Library or the Vista Grande Library Dec. 1 through Dec. 15 and drop off your letters to Santa! One of Santa’s helpers, and maybe even Santa himself, will read your letters and give you some book suggestions based on your wish lists in a fun video online!
Give your children the best gift of all this holiday season, a library card!
Come and make some new traditions at your Casa Grande and Vista Grande public libraries this November and December. See you soon!
