The Colonial Heights Library is excited to announce Summer Learning Programs for the week of July 23 including Super Skill Toys, Old Macdonald's Sing-A-Long, and African Folktales. See below for program information. Contact the Library at (804)520-9384 for more information.
What are Skill Toys? Skill toys are a collected from cultures around the world that encourage self-directed learning and a growth mindset as individuals and growth. Some require precision, others allow for creative play. The skill toys we will be using during this program include: flop balls, kendama, flower sticks, diabolos, yoyos, spinning plates, and juggling balls. Do I need to be good at playing with these toys? NO! A lot of the fun is in the learning process. An important part of achieving a goal and being successful is in failing, trying again (often many times), and persistence! No registration is required, program is for ages 4th Grade and up.
