Block Party!


Lego fun has begun at Sunnyside this summer. Every Friday afternoon all summer long we are using our building skills to create some pretty amazing lego contraptions. Join us Friday afternoons from 1 to 5 p.m. downstairs in the "cool" Children's Department. This past Friday 30 children joined us and built the afternoon away!
