Grand Rapids Story Times are Fun, Educational, and Free!

Who doesn’t love an activity with kids that is well-organized, educational, fun, and FREE? Heading to the local library for story time is one of my favorite outings with my kids.

We live in Alger Heights and love to bike over to Grand Rapids Public Library Seymour Branch. Each session there includes singing, rhymes, and, of course, story time! After story time, there is a hand-ons activity and playtime. During activity time, we’ve made construction vests out of duct tape, colored with bingo dabbers, and made flowers from pipe cleaners. The last time we went there was even a bubble machine!

An added bonus of Story Time at the library is that it is a great way to connect with parents in your neighborhood.  I love to meet other moms who live nearby and catch up with them on weekly basis.

I’ve also learned valuable parenting advice at story time. I learned that the slower pronunciation in singing promotes language development.  Since then we’ve been jamming out in the car to Disney songs and learning at the same time!

Check out these library story time locations to connect with your neighborhood and enjoy a fun-filled and educational time with your kids.
