Looking for exciting options for kids on Presidents Day (Feb. 18) and Casimir Pulaski Day (March 4) when schools are closed?
Presidents Day, February 18, 9-12 year olds, 2-4PM
The Oak Park Education Foundation (OPEF) is offering a special, free program for kids ages 9-12 in conjunction with the Oak Park Public Library in the Oak Park Main Library Storytime Room. Kids will design and build cool machines using the motorized LEGO mechanism sets from our Geared Up program — learning exciting hands-on lessons, testing their own ideas and working individually and in teams of two.
Casimir Pulaski Day, March 4, 3rd-8th graders, 8AM-3PM
New this year — BASE Camp GAME DAY! All day, 3rd-5th graders will play some new games and make up others. They’ll construct their own mini-golf course out of LEGOs, play improv games to make each other laugh, create an artsy board game to take home, and cut loose with games in the gym. 6th-8th graders will spend the day designing and constructing a cardboard arcade, which the younger kids will play at the end of the day. And there will be cheesy prizes to be won!
