Good news! PJ Library is here to entertain your kids now that school is out. Each week, families can register for PJ@Home, a free weekly program via Zoom, and will be sent a link to join the program. Log on to enjoy a fun and engaging half hour of activities and stories.
For the first program on June 17, children made blanket forts and smores and snuggled up to listen to PJ stories.
“I loved how the families participated,” said Abby Trachtman, project coordinator for the Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley, who is running the programs. “The kids were so cute. They’ve all been using Zoom so were familiar with the platform. We spent a little time visiting with one another too.”
Trachtman has high hopes for the future of the program.
“All of the families who participated in week one registered for week two as soon as the flyer went out, so that says they enjoyed it,” she added.
Programs will continue on Wednesday mornings at 11 a.m. through July 22. Future offerings include a nature scavenger hunt followed by making a sun catcher with the items found, taking an imagination vacation and more.
Registered participants will receive an email listing the items needed for the program. Most items are things we have readily available at home. Don’t have the materials? No problem. Children can just listen and watch if they prefer and do the activity another time.
