Roosevelt Island Parents' Network Back To School Crafts For Kids Friday September 11 - Please RSVP Today

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

Dear all,

I hope you had a fun and relaxing summer! Our next event in the "Crafts with Kids" series by the Roosevelt Island Parents' Network will be a "Back to school craft" this Friday, September 11, at the Senior Center, 546 Main Street, 5-6pm.

The children will decorate the cover of a composition notebook. The front will be covered with white paper or paint, and the children can draw or paint on it, decorate with pieces of colored paper etc.

Here is a similar project:

We will finish the craft with some back to school themed story-time.

A suggested donation for this craft is $2 per family. Even if you cannot donate, every child is welcome.

A special thank you to Hara Jun for helping us with so many events! We will miss you Hara and wish you best success with school. Also thank you 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 Thursday, September 10. Please let us know if you can bring some back to school 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.

We wish all children and parents an easy school start tomorrow and look forward to seeing you on Friday!
