Kisker Road Library Story Time
The children’s librarian at Kisker Road Library will be offering private story
time opportunities for the children of the Tykestown Daycare and Preschool.
She has excellent interaction with the children and encourages their
participation in finger plays and story actions. Our first private story time
will be Friday, October 3rd from 10am to 10:45am. The children will also
have the opportunity to check out a couple of books to enjoy in the
Parent’s Night Out (PNO)
We will be offering a Parent's Night Out on Saturday, October 11th from 5
PM to 11 PM. The PNO fee is $20 with an additional $15 for siblings. The
children will be served dinner, and we will be making and decorating
Halloween cookies for a fun snack. They will enjoy playing Halloween themed
games and watching a (children’s) movie during the camp-out in the playroom.
The deadline to reserve your child's space is Thursday, October 9th.
October Field Trip
We will visit Daniel’s Farm located @ 352 Jungermann Road in St. Peters on
Wednesday, October 22nd. The children will enjoy the petting zoo, a straw
maze, a fort maze, and a whiskey bale train ride. There are also large
wooden cutouts available for fun photos and a playground to play on if there
is time. Each child will get to pick a small pumpkin to bring home with them.
We will have a picnic lunch before leaving the farm. We will be leaving at
9:30am and returning at approximately 12:30pm.
We have a day full of fun planned for Halloween (Friday, October 31st). We
will play Halloween games and have a Halloween themed menu which includes:
~Halloween apple bites (apple slices w/ almond slivers for teeth)
~mummy dogs (hot dogs wrapped in baked dough ropes and mustard dots for
~skeleton w/brain dip (fresh fruits & veggies arranged in the shape of
skeleton w/ ranch dip)
~ghosts in the graveyard (dessert-pudding topped w/ Oreo crumbles and
Cool-Whip ghosts & gravestone cookies)
~spider web brownies
We will be going ’daytime trick-or-treating’ around 10am to approx. 11am.
Children should bring their Halloween costumes to wear during this time.
Please bring a light jacket or clothing to wear under costume if the weather
is cool. We will be staying on Norwich Drive (crossing over Droste). We will
also be trick-or-treating in the subdivision during the evening hours with the
2nd shift children.
