Monday Funday–Homemade Fingerpaint!


fingerpaint FB imageI mentioned in Friday’s post that we have been busy developing a couple of new programs this spring–one is Homeschool Hub and the other is Monday Funday.  (Love that name?  Me too!  Thank Sara at Bryce Don’t Play for her awesomeness!)  The purpose of Monday Funday is to offer unique, hands-on learning opportunities for kids who are at home during the day such as preschoolers, homeschoolers, kids with special needs, etc.

Monday Funday meets every Monday at 11:00 a.m. at the Leesburg Library.  Next week we are making biscuits!  Squeeeeeee!
