HKYFS Offers Activity Bags for Pre-K Children in HK Communities

Submitted by Laura Shipman, HKYFS.

(December 29, 2020) — Haddam Killingworth Youth & Family Services is pleased to announce that the Middlesex United Way has awarded us funding to support early childhood programs and programming.  As we look forward to 2021 we have decided to make a winter version of our Early Childhood Activity Bags available to the public.  Given the positive response to the Summer Activity Bags offered this past July, we are offering Winter Activity Bags that will be made available to families for pick up the last week of January, 2021.

Our Winter Activity Bags will be filled with open-ended, fun and easy activities for Pre-K children and their families to do over the winter. Bags will include such things as: a recipe to make snow dough, a math activity, winter animal stamp math, weather game, snowman glyph and other items.

Much like last summer, you need to email or call the office 860.345.7498 to reserve a bag.  When your bag is ready for pick up, you will be contacted.  The bags will then be placed in a bin outside HKYFS’s front door at a time and date that is convenient for you. Our office is located at 91 Little City Road, Higganum.  We are the white, two-story house on the left as you enter HK High School driveway.

Bags are limited and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.  A waiting list will be created if spots fill up and we will offer a second round of bags later in the season.
