We’ve all done the pumpkin thing for Halloween. We paint them, we carve them, we put them on our porches. Some even dress as them. But why not jump into the pumpkin scene a little bit deeper?
The Friends of the Cranford Library are sponsoring a special “get to know your pumpkins” event in the Raddin Room (children’s room) of the Cranford Public Library at 224 Walnut Avenue. On Saturday, October 11th, come with your little ones from grade K-6, and learn all about our favorite Fall gourd with Marigold Mike from “Let’s Bloom Together,” a gardening / going green enrichment program designed to make learning about plants and flowers fun and interesting for children, by providing them with an opportunity to experience and appreciate the beauty and wonder of the natural world we live in through engaging, hands-on programs. Find out about the history of Jack-o-Lanterns, how pumpkins were used by our ancestors, and the uses of pumpkins as food. Then, of course, stay to paint your own Jack-o-Lantern!
Registration is required, so contact Lauren Antolino at (908)709-7272 to save a spot for your little pumpkin-lover!
