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

I hope everyone had a smooth school start and is getting settled into the daily routines. You and your little (and bigger! :) ones are invited to the next event in the free "Crafts with Kids" series by the Roosevelt Island Parents' Network!

"Halloween craft" will take place on Tuesday, October 27th, 5-6pm at the Senior Center, 546 Main Street. We are planning to make a Spider Headband with the children.  First we can read some fun facts about spiders with the kids and include those in our crafts, like the fact that spiders have eight legs and (most of them) eight eyes. Each headband will be measured by the kids head size and each spider will have four legs on each side. The children can decorate their spiders as they wish. We can also sing Little miss muffet and Itsy bitsy spider nursery rhymes for our little ones.

A special thank you to Neha Sharma for taking over from Hara as our Craft with Kids organizer! 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 Tuesday, October 20. Please let us know if you can bring books about spiders or Halloween for the story time or for our little kids book shelf during the event.

Also you are welcome to mark your calendar for our upcoming

Thanksgiving Craft on Tuesday, November 24th 5-6pm and our

Holiday Crafts on Tuesday, December 15th 5-6pm.

Last but not least: If you have craft event ideas you would like us to include in the "Craft with Kids" series, or if you have other ideas for activities of the RI Parents' Network, please get in touch with me.
