All Howard County families with children aged 3-5 are welcome to join us as we celebrate the Month of the Young Child
with Back to the Basics at the annual Children’s Discovery Fair.
Our goal is to prepare your child for school readiness and success in education. This year’s offering has a stellar line up of literacy,
movement, music and steam activities – story times, crafts, free dental screenings, give a-ways, and much more! For starters,
the library’s On the Road to Kindergarten van will be at the Discovery Fair the entire time. Everyone is welcome to climb on board and see what this mobile library has to offer. You can get a library card on the spot and check out any of the amazing finds aboard.
Then, how about the variety of classes and demonstrations offered specifically for you and your children? Ever wonder about STEAM activities for your preschooler? Join the fun of the Shape Hunt while your child participates in counting, grouping and comparing shapes. Explore movement and have fun while dancing with scarves and clapping to the beat of the music. Let your child engage in the sporting challenge of Solo Cup Bowling.
Take the challenge with Free* Interactive* Easy-To-Do competitions and demonstrations specifically designed for your preschooler. The menu includes some of these exciting activities:
*Loud and silly story times
*Creating art tools
*Cars and ramps
*Building with Lego and blocks
*Marching band and many others!
And when you need a break…calm yourself and relax with yoga movement and play.
