Students living in Lake Stevens real estate are invited to spend some time at the Lake Stevens Library over Spring Break. Stock up on music, books, and movies to fill your time at home and also consider coming out for some special events during the week.
Little Science Lab will take place on Thursday, April 5th, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. This event is for preschoolers and their caregivers. It is important that adults stay to help out since this program requires a 1:1 child to adult ratio. This 30 minute weekly program allows children to explore science and gain a better understanding of the world around them. Get hands on with math, engineering, technology, and other science topics. Advance registration is required and if this date fills up or does not work for you, try another week.
On the same day, Thursday, April 5th, 2018, teens and tweens ages 10-18 are invited to the library for Wilderness Survival: Cordage. From 3 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. youngsters will learn all about making cordage, which is rope made from plant fibers. This is a very important wilderness skill. Each person will learn how to harvest and prepare cordage and also learn many wilderness applications for it such as fishing line and shelter construction. Each participant will also learn about paracord and make a bracelet to take home with them to their Lake Stevens real estate. Registration is required and be sure to do so early before the event fills up.
On Friday, April 6th, 2018, elementary aged children are invited to the library for Explore Forest Animals with Idea Hatch. This event will take place from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. and children will be able to learn about forest animals through hands-on stations. Youth can get a little messy in an AR sandbox creating a watershed, watch with glee as they fly a bird in a wind tunnel, and gain confidence as they guess the animal from given clues. All can get creative and make animal tracks as well as a tree pendant to take home. Build on this as a family and consider going for a walk later and looking for animal clues. As with the other events, be sure to register early to claim a spot!
