The Y supports kids and families to learn, grow, and thrive. With fun activities that the whole family can enjoy, intentional moments to calm the soul, and engaging projects to keep minds moving and learning, we're here to help you navigate days without school and work.
Do you have left over candy from Halloween or Valentine's day? Do you have extra Peeps laying around the house? Use your ingenuity and some sticky sweets to create a catapult, then launch candy to see which type flies the furthest!
Homemade greeting cards are a great way to show off your creativity and let people know that they are appreciated. Take a few minutes each day to create a greeting card for hospital staff, police officers, firemen, or those in senior homes.
