ATKINSON — Winter vacation week for many of the local schools is right around the corner (February 24-March 1) and we’re continuing our series on ‘What shall I do with the kids?” Please take advantage of our varied activities and events as well as our museum passes. If you head to our website and click on the calendar events icon you’ll see the details for each activity or museum. Plan ahead and stay tuned to our weekly press release either here or on the Kimball Library blog.

Tues., February 25 is day two of our vacation week events. Children will have a choice of ‘Pancakes Galore’ at either 10:15 or 11:30 a.m. We Love Pancakes and it’s the perfect day to share them with your children. We hope they’ll come and eat them with us as well as listen to pancakes books, play pancakes games, watch pancake videos (you get the idea!) This activity is for children only in the parameters listed. Register ages 2 – kindergarten for 10:15-11:00 a.m. Register grades 1-6 for 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. For families that have a child in both age groups offered, we ask that you sign up in the younger (10:15) group. We’ll have all the toppings they’ll love. Activities suit the age groupings listed and are for the children. Non-residents may register one day before the event (February 24) only.

We are extremely excited about Wed., February 26, which is day three of vacation week events. Get pumped with us for ‘Frosty’s Magic B-Day Party’ (famous as the Greg & Alex Show) on Wed., February 26, from 6:30-7:30 p.m.

The ‘Frosty’s Magic B-day Party’ show is entirely themed around celebrating Frosty the snowman’s birthday. This unique show involves magic, audience participation, comedy, free magical gifts for all the children and children at heart, and Malcolm (Malcolm the Rabbit in the hat puppet). Greg also brings his sidekick, Alex the dog, to each show for photo ops. Bring your camera!

Please register all (adults included) for ‘Frosty’s Magic B-day Party’ as we have a maximum room capacity. Preschool age children are welcome, but do remember that we seat children on the floor and if they are younger than kindergarten you must sit with them in hugging distance.
