Such a fun (but chilly!) Field Trip to Fleming Farms this past Friday! Thanks to Otsego County Parks & Rec. & Great Start Parent Coalition for funding it! If you weren't able to make it, check them out on the weekend when they are open to the public.
UPDATED FLEMING FARM PLAN:
We will do all the “inside the barn stuff” like snack, animals, and play areas from 10-11ish.
Then around 10:45-11am we will load the wagons for the patch. Then, the wagons will haul the families and pumpkins down to their cars where you can load up, pumpkins and kids. 😊
See you in the morning. 😊🎃

Check out the new books up at the Storywalks in Ga***rd at the Community Garden & in Vanderbilt at the park behind the library!
Information on Fleming Farms Field Trip:
Meet AT THE FARM on Friday, beginning at 10 a.m. It is about a 10 minute ride from the Community Center.
**I do have some bus tokens available if transportation is an issue. Please contact me by Thursday if you need some.
In the past we have gone on the wagon ride to the field around 10:30, once we are sure everyone who is planning to come gets there. We all go out together, then they let us unload our pumpkins by the cars. The rest of the time is free play & you are welcome to visit the animals, do the hay maze, & play in the barn.
*We might do snack before the wagon ride... we will find out Friday!
It is going to be one of the COLDEST days we've had so far this fall, so boots, winter coats, hats, mittens are strongly suggested! You can bring a blanket to snuggle with on the wagon ride if you'd like.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU SIGN IN EVERY PERSON IN YOUR GROUP OVER AGE 2, I will be running around with a sign in sheet. :-) EVERYONE gets to pick a pumpkin & cider & a donut, gets to feed the animals & play in the barn.
This event is FREE for all of our wonderful Playgroup Families, provided by the Otsego County Park & Rec Department and the Great Start Parent Coalition. Donations are welcome.
See you then! 🎃
Boots for Kids - October 13, 2022
Fun with Fall leaves this past week! 🍃 🍂 🍁 🌿 We had a gym day with the bikes, the Sensory table came out with beans to scoop & pour, there were blocks to build with and dolly's to push in strollers....we are BUSY at Playgroup! Add to the fact that we have lots of new friends this year (counted at least 30 kiddos on Friday!).... so much fun! We made "leafy owls" on Friday, cute decor for your fridge at home! 🦉
Don't forget this upcoming Friday is our Pumpkin Patch field trip, 10 a.m. - noon at Fleming Farm!
Reminder that Story Time starts this week! Join us today or tomorrow at 10:00am at the Main Branch for fun stories, songs, and crafts! We hope to see you here!
Mark your calendars, there is still a lot of time to RSVP to our first Community Baby Shower and Infant Safe Sleep event.
This event is open to everyone and we especially want to include expectant parents, parents of young children, grandparents or other caregivers, anyone who may babysit an infant under 12 months old, or who takes a special interest in issues affecting children. We will review the most up to date infant safe sleep recommendations!
We have 17 pack and plays and infant safe sleep sacks to give away to expectant parents and parents of young children. We have additional door prizes and will have light refreshments.
Also, you can come and learn a little more about OCCWA and the services that we provide in our community. We are always looking for motivated individuals who want to sit on our board and volunteer at our events.
Please join us on 10/26/22 at 5:00pm in the Otsego County Library, second floor meeting room!

Tuesday, July 26th was a great park play day! Our project of the day was making ice cream in a bag, yum!
See you on Tuesday August 9th at the Splash Pad Park in Waters!
*Recipe we used: (enough to serve 2)
2 Tablespoons instant vanilla pudding
1/3 cup EACH whole milk, half & half, whipping cream (you can make it with just milk, but using the creams is what makes it creamy.) 😀
Put in a quart sized zip lock bag with the air out.
Put that bag in a gallon sized bag with lots of ice and 1/2 cup of salt (any kind will work but larger salt grains like coarse salt or canning salt are best.)
SHAKE until your arms want to fall off & your hands are cold!
Shake some more.
Wonder why you just didn't take your kids out for ice cream.
(About 10 minutes).
Stop at whatever consistency you like....some kids made milkshakes, some soft serve, we even had 1 get it to scoopable ice cream stage!
Fun was had at the Vanderbilt park
