The Alabama Cooperative Extension Services’ Summer Fun Shops, a workshop series for children ages eight to 18, will continue next week at the Town Creek Public Library.
On Tuesday, SNAP Educator Jennifer Palmer will provide instruction on the sun’s role in the growth of colorful fruits and veggies from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Children will also enjoy making water sparklers and fruity chicken salad cups during next week’s Fun Shop.
Lunch will be included.
Palmer will return to the library on Tuesday, July 9, with tips on staying cool this summer. Kids will be introduced to exciting healthy choices and learn about adding fruit and vegetables to a drink of water. They will also learn how to make cool cucumber yogurt dips.
On Thursday, July 11, a “Birds in the Park” Fun Shop will take place at the Moulton Parks and Recreation Center. Participants are asked to bring their own binoculars for bird watching, and children will be able to construct their own birdhouse during a Fun Shop craft.
Preregistration is required for all classes. Class size may be limited, and each Fun Shop is subject to cancellation if less than five participants register.
