Wayne County Day of Play in Newark was held this past Saturday at Perkins School. In the gym, we had scooters, hula hoops, scarf juggling, LEGOs, basketball, and even a dance teacher! Outside, we had the playground, bubbles, and sidewalk chalk, so there was something fun for everybody to do. We had over 75 people come to the school on a beautiful Saturday, so I’d call that a huge success!
On top of the fun activities, we also offered snacks for the kids, free books, HOT OFF THE PRESS Summer Reading calendars, and 25 cent raffles for bags full of books and other goodies.
Below is a picture of our book, calendar, and raffle table. There were many more books than you see here; we had to keep replenishing the stock! It’s such a great feeling to put a book into the hands of a child, especailly a book they can keep.
