Creative Squad

Make new friends, read books, share stories, create art, tell jokes, play games and finally let loose during Miss Gail's 2-minute dance parties. Each session begins with a mindful moment, reading a book together and a short conversation about how the stories relate to our own feelings and life experiences. Then launch into a creative activity, such as puppet making, drawing, using the puppets to perform your own imaginative stories and more art projects. Six week series meeting once a week for one hour sessions.
