Make Your Own Worry Pet
Tuesday, September 12, 4:30 PM
We'll use simple hand-sewing techniques to create our own worry pets! Lots of kids struggle with worry and anxiety, especially around the start of a new school year. These worry pets are small enough to fit in a pocket, and they can provide a comforting sensory experience to settle little worried hands and minds. They're not just for worriers though! Kids in grades 3-5 are welcome to register!

Get To Know Spike Prime Robot

Is your child interested in learning more about LEGO Robotics? If yes, this is an opportunity for you to reserve 60 minutes with a mentor to get them started in LEGO SPIKE Robotics and coding. This program is: an introduction to the LEGO SPIKE Prime robotics system to see if it's something you or your child want to learn more about, a chance to see if your child wants to join the 4 week introductory class that starts on Monday, October 16 and a time to ask questions if you’re thinking about joining a First Lego League team. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Registration required. Space is limited. If the program is full, please register for the waitlist at www.seekonkpl.org  and you will be notified if other introductory nights are added.

Tools for Tiny Hands
Tuesday, September 19 at 10 AM
Tools for Tiny Hands: Peel, Rip, Stick is a kit for children ages 2 to 5 and their adults. It’s filled with materials and ideas that will help children further develop and practice their fine motor skills, which are "skills that children need for everyday life and for success in school." Designed in an atmosphere of play, children will stop at different stations throughout the room to experiment with hands-on activities involving stickers and tape. Families may arrive anytime after 10 AM. Children will be able to stay with an activity for as long as they wish with no pressure to move on to other activities until they want to. The program concludes at 11:30 AM.
