PRCR offering take-home activity kits for children ages 5-11

Wednesday, July 1, 2020 - 1:09pm

In an ongoing effort to promote art and creativity, while also emphasizing the importance of staying safe during the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department is now offering take-home activity kits for children ages 5-11 of all ability levels. As a special one-time offer, this week’s kits are free to the first 30 people to register in RecDesk. Future take-home activity kits with assorted themes will be offered for $5 each.

Featuring a “Fourth of July” theme, this week’s activity kit includes an activity/craft, glow bracelet, Independence Day-themed activity sheets and décor, and a festive recipe to try (ingredients not included). Each kit includes supplies for one person and pre-registration is required. Please note: Due to the limited number of kits, a separate registration is required for each requested kit. The program is titled “01 Take-Home Activity Kit – Fourth of July.”

Kits will be available for no-contact pickup Thursday, July 2, from 1-3 p.m. and Friday, July 3, from 10 a.m.-noon at Joyner Park Community Center, 701 Harris Road.

During pickup, please remain in your vehicle. A PRCR staff member will bring your kit to a table in the half circle at the front of the building. Once the staff member has stepped away from the table, one person may exit the vehicle to retrieve the kit from the table.
