Barnes & Noble Story & Craft Time

[Full disclosure: I have zero affiliation with Barnes & Noble. I'm just a customer. :)]

One of our local Barnes & Noble locations has a Story & Craft Time on Saturday mornings; our other local Barnes & Noble location has them on, I believe, Friday mornings. Although the sessions are held year-round, Maya and I are really making them a part of our summer Saturday routine.

The sessions always have a theme, like fathers on Father's Day weekend, Fancy Nancy, and animal safari. The storyteller, who is excellent here, reads two or three books before having craft time. The sessions usually last 30 to 45 minutes, depending in large part on how complicated the craft happens to be.

If a child under the age of 13 is part of your life, you might also be interested in joining the free Barnes & Noble Kids' Club. Members receive $5 rewards certificates by e-mail for every $100 spent on kids' products, either online or in-store, up to $20 in certificates per year. You also get a coupon for a free cupcake or cookie for the child's birthday. Maya highly recommends the chocolate cupcake!

There's also a summer reading program, where kids get a free book from a select list after reading eight books and returning a Reading Journal.

I wanted to include a photo of Maya with one of her crafts for this posting, but someone is definitely tired of having her picture taken! Maybe for another post in the future. . . .
