Arizona Authors Summertime Storytelling & Craft Saturdays

Come and enjoy fun, hands-on children's storytelling and crafts every Saturday in June and July from 10 a.m. to noon at Pueblo Grande Museum! These programs are perfect for children in pre-kindergarten through fourth grade, with each story being read by the Arizona author themselves! After each storytelling, participants will have a chance to do fun crafts related to the characters and themes of each story. Saturday programs are $5 each, include a light snack, and Museum entrance for participants.

Pre-registration is not required but recommended as space is limited. Parents can register online at pueblogrande.com or check-in at the front desk each Saturday. All participants must be accompanied by an adult. This summer reading program was made possible in part by a donation from Safeway and Bookmans.  Print Program Flyer!
