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

Monday, July 20, 2020 - 1:38pm

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 (PRCR) Department is offering take-home activity kits for children ages 5-11 of all ability levels. Available for $5 each to the first 35 people to register via RecDesk, the kits will be available for no contact pickup Thursday, July 23, from 1-3 p.m. and Friday, July 24, from 10 a.m.-noon at Joyner Park Community Center, 701 Harris Road.

Featuring a “Fun in the Sun” theme, this week’s activity kit includes various outdoor activities, including a kite, jump rope, bubbles and more! 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 “02 Take Home Activity Kit - Fun in the Sun.”

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.
