Winter Break activities

Looking for something to do over the Winter Break? The MidKid School Break movies might just be the ticket! Friends and families can warm-up with fresh-made popcorn and snacks. On Friday, December 30th 12:30-2:30 join us for the big screen viewing of THE BFG (2016). Rated PG, this fun and fantastical Roald Dahl story of Sophie and her new friend, The Big Friendly Giant is recommended for grades 3- 6th.

Zootopia will be our feature film  on Saturday, January 7th, 12:30-3:00 pm. Also Rated PG, this film is recommended for families with kids in grades K-6.  After watching Officer Judy Bunny and the ZPD, spend time talking with community police officers.

The MidKid Hangout space is always here for kids grade 1- 6. Play games, use the chalk board or check out an iPad and just relax in the Cube. You can also create something new in the WouldShop or on the Lego Wall.
