Big San Francisco Playdate: No New Media and That’s OK!
Last Sunday I was pleased to attend one of the Big San Francisco Play Dates with my own little person at the Visitacion Valley branch of the San Francisco Public Library. Along with some of my colleagues from the California State Library’s Early Learning with Families 2.0 Initiative we played with bubbles, built structures out of blocks, crawled through carboard boxes, created three dimensional shapes with newspaper & masking tape, tossed some balls around, wore funny hats and made new friends (Hi Eve!) What a fantastic program! Kudos to Christy Estrovitz, who came up with the idea. Let’s hope lots of libraries replicate this idea!
