The theme for February Au-Some Evening is Friendship and Kindness. In addition to a fun night of play on all of our inclusive exhibits, we have special programming for families! In the Art Studio, families can make a Hanging Hearts Collage or Doily Heart Print. There will be sensory activities to explore in the Tinkering Tank including Valentine’s Day glitter playdough, themed “Fun is in the Air”, light tables and sensory bottles. Families can also decorate and add their handprint to our Explore & More Friendship Wreath! We will feature therapy animals from the SPCA and volunteers from SUNY Buffalo State’s Exceptional Education program. Parent resources will be available such as a How to be a Superfriend scripted story, parent tips on how to teach friendship skills, and links for books/stories about making friends.
