Playgroup for mothers (and others) and their children.
Friday 4/20 (and every Friday!!) --
Bring outdoor play things (parachutes, bubbles, play silks, sidewalk chalk), blankets if you please, snacks to share.
Bring books or articles of interest to our growing mother activist community, as well as questions, comments and friends.
Build community, make new friends, hang with old ones.
From this point forward, we’ll be focused on actions well integrated into our playgroup time, as well as planning for the Mother’s Day Peace Parade. During the month of April, we will join with our sisters in action at MomsRising and decorate onesies as part of the Mother’s Day geared Power of ONEsie campaign. From MomsRising:
DECORATE A ONEsie & MAIL IT TO US: Make it personal! Over the next several months we'll be collecting ONEsies to display around the country. Simply get a new or used baby onesie (or a small kids t-shirt) and make it your own by decorating it with fabric paint, markers, or even rhinestones. Joan says, "I had fun doing a couple of ONEsies with my young daughter... and I was struck by what she wrote on hers, 'Love, love, love and more love.' She understands." You can add catchy slogans, hold a ONEsie decorating party, and/or have kids help with the project. *Mail Your Creation by May 1, 2007 to Be Part of a Fabulous Mother's Day Extravaganza: MomsRising,
We’ll have paint and some new onesies, but bring some to recycle as well!!
*** On inclement weather days we’ll gather at the downtown public library on the second floor in the children’s area.
