We started a fun new program here at WSPL this week. We have partnered with Parkview Manor and Sunrise Child Care to bring an intergenerational interactive storytime to Wellman. Once a month we are bringing a group of kids to Parkview to have a little story time where we read a few books, sing songs, do a simple craft and play a game.
The Parkview residents are gathered around to enjoy the company of the children while they laugh and play. This intergenerational interaction really brings joy and laughter to both groups (and any helpers/observers as well!). Our theme this month was Christmas and we all enjoyed revisiting the Christmas classics as well as introducing some new Christmas stories. We plan on continuing this program every month with a different theme and activities.
