Roosevelt Island Parents' Network Be Mine Valentine Free Craft For Kids Saturday February 13 - Please RSVP By February 7

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

Dear all,

Valentine's Day, also known as Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is a celebration observed on February 14 each year. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it is not a public holiday in most of them.

When it comes to making fun crafts with our children, Valentine's Day is one of our absolute favorite holiday crafts. There are endless possibilities of what to do but since our children love animals we thought of choosing something fun that involves them. So please join us just a day before Valentine's Day for the next event in the free "Crafts with Kids" series and let those tiny hands make some fun craft.

"Be Mine Valentine Craft" by the Roosevelt Island Parents' Network will take place on Saturday, February 13, 10-11am at the Senior Center, 546 Main Street.

The children will be creating a perfect card for a special friend or to give to their loving mom or dad. Adorable Bee Mine Valentine bumblebees consist of little hearts, are easy to make, and do not take much time. Children old enough to use scissors can practice their scissor skills, too!

We thank Dolores Green, Barbara Parker, Wendy Hersh and Marylin Atkins from the Senior Center for letting us use their space for the event. Another thank you goes to HOPE RI Church for sponsoring the event supplies and to Neha, an Island mom of two and our "Crafts with Kids" organizer!

Please RSVP to eva.bosbach@gmail.com by Sunday, February 7. Please let us know if you can bring books about Valentine's, love or friendship 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 us to include in the "Crafts with Kids" series, or if you have other ideas for activities of the RI Parents' Network, please get in touch with me.

Stay warm :),

Save the date for our upcoming events:

March 19, 10-11am, Easter Craft

April 16, 10-11am, Spring Craft and

May 7, 10-11am, Mothers Day Craft.

We are looking forward to seeing you and your little ones! :

Amanda, Christina, Neha and Eva
