Tuesday, August 18, 2020

Welcome to week 22 and post #85 of Club at Home! We’re in our final week of summer programming, and while some of our members are back at the Clubs, we know many families are at home. We want to ensure there are fun and educational activities for you wherever you are! Today, find activities for members across all age groups, including wand making, smoothies, DIY tornadoes, and fried Oreos.

Riddle of the Day

If a brother, his sister, and their dog weren’t under an umbrella, why didn’t they get wet?

The answer to Friday’s riddle: Draw a shorter line next to it, and then it becomes the longer line!

Tune in Friday to see the answer and get a new riddle!

The wand chooses the wizard, except when the wizard makes the wand! Join Arts Program Manager Katie as we make a wand together for all your magical summer needs. Make sure you have someone to supervise with the hot glue gun for this.

 For all ages.
