Au-Some Evening

December 9, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


December’s Au-Some Evening theme is Caring & Sharing! In the Art Studio families can make and wrap “warm fuzzies” as gifts to share with family and friends. Your child can also paint a winter scene to take home. There will be holiday themed sensory activities to explore in the Tinkering Tank, including “snow- dough.” We will feature our Sensitive Santa who will be available for pictures! Support animals from the SPCA and volunteers from Buffalo State’s Exceptional Education Graduate Program will be in attendance. Parents will have the opportunity to download resources such as a scripted story about “Winter Break” and tips on “How to Teach Caring, Sharing & Generosity to Children.” The Low Bridge Café will be open to purchase grab and go snacks.

To register for the next Au-Some Evening please complete the form, here!

Au-Some Evenings are brought to us through the generous support of Mother Cabrini Health Foundation.

Au-Some Evenings are also supported by J.M. McDonald Foundation, Maria Love Convalescent Fund, and Erie County
