“Share the Light” Activity Kits
November 3, 2022 - November 30, 2022
Friends of Sears Island will be offering free “Share the Light” grab-and-go activity kits this month for children. With the solstice and the holidays approaching, now is a great time to reflect on winter, our relationship to the earth, and how we can share our light with others during the coldest and darkest months of the year. This kit will include materials to make natural homemade fire starters for staying warm on winter nights, gold paper to make star ornaments or a garland for the solstice, a kindness calendar, ideas for helping animals in winter, and suggestions for celebrating the solstice!
The kits are free and intended for children ages 5-12. Donations to Friends of Sears Island are always greatly appreciated to allow the organization to continue to offer programming to all at no cost. Quantities are limited and will be distributed to families on a first-come, first-served basis. Thanks to a generous donation this month from the Waldo County Retired Teachers Association, we are able to offer more kits than usual! We cannot accommodate requests for kits for classrooms, but teachers and others are welcome to download free PDFs of the handouts in the Resources section of this website. To request a kit for your child, please email email@example.com. After receiving a confirmation email, families can pick up their kits from November 18 – December 2 at the Carver Memorial Library in Searsport.
