Roosevelt Island Parents' Network Summer Crafts For Kids August 7 - Paint A Paper Plate Cheerful Ladybug - Please RSVP

Roosevelt Island Parents' Network Coordinator (RIPN) Eva Bosbach reports:

Dear all,

The summer is in full swing and we hope you can join us for the next free event in the "Crafts with Kids" series by the Roosevelt Island Parents' Network!

Our Summer craft will take place on Friday, August 7, at the Senior Center, 546 Main Street, 5-6pm. The children will be painting with red water colors on paper plates, adding dots and eyes later and creating a cheerful ladybug that they can either hang up on the wall or stick into a flower pot at home.

While we will wait for the red layer to dry before painting the black dots there will be plenty of time for some summer themed story-time.

A special thank you goes to HOPE RI Church for contributing to the event supplies and to Dolores Green, Barbara Parker, Wendy Hersh and Marylin Atkins from the Senior Center for letting us use their space for the event.

Please RSVP to by Friday, July 31. Please include the following information in your RSVP:
  • can/cannot bring own water colors (or tube of red color, red finger paint etc.), brushes, and glue. 
  • can/cannot bring some summer or bugs related books for the story time or for our little kids book shelf during the event.
And as always: If you have craft event ideas you would like to organize yourself or would like me to include in our series, or if you have other ideas for activities of our Network, let me know! :)

"Crafts with Kids" is a free workshop series for children organized by the Roosevelt Island Parents' Network. The monthly events included "Tram art and necklaces", "Matisse for Kids", "Valentines Craft", "St Patricks Craft", "Earth Day Craft", "Easter Craft", "Mothers Day Craft" and "Fathers Day Craft".
