A new year of Firefly Friends with Miss Jennifer is about to begin! Firefly Friends is a program of nature-based stories, songs, and take-home crafts to help children ages 2-5 shine bright lights in the world. Come meet Juniper the firefly puppet and help Miss Jennifer wake up the sleeping fireflies!
Registration is open for “Your Light is Bright,” the first “wing” of Firefly Friends, which will meet outdoors under the gazebo at Harry Allen Park (across the street from the Mendon Public Library) from 10:00-10:30am on the following Wednesdays: 9.22, 9.29, 10.6 and 10.13. A parent or caregiver must be present. Each week we visit with our feelings and focus on a different theme. At the end of each 4-week “wing,” children earn a firefly patch of a different color. The weekly themes for “Your Light is Bright” are: Happiness, Brightness, Uniqueness, and Kindness.
Please note that class size is limited to 10 children and registration is required. You can register your child by stopping by the Mendon Public Library at 22 North Main St., Honeoye Falls, NY 14472 or by calling them at 585.624.6067. Classes are offered as a free community service, but a $10 donation per child is greatly appreciated to help cover the cost of the month’s craft supplies.
