Ackerman, Susan Chocolate and Candy Crafts Life Skills- Food
One and a half hours of creative chocolate and candy craft making. This program is always a sell out. The children/teens/adults will learn about chocolate as they make their own molds and decorate them. As well, there are two other chocolate/candy craft projects that vary depending upon the groups age, the season and/or librarian request. Participants sample the chocolate and go home with a bag full of the treats they have created. Delicious, fun and even educational!

Together they create a fabulously interactive family concert featuring funky drumming, electric violin, and silly songs about assorted childhood challenges –from accidentally losing your lunchbox to accidentally getting locked in the bathroom. Winter concerts explore sledding, sneezing, and itchy snowsuits, summer shows feature tunes about boating and baseball. This January they received both an ASCAP Award and a Kids Music Award for 2011. “This rockin' kids band delivers a mix of funk, rock and blues in quirky songs about the trials of growing up.” - Time Out New York Kids. “Catchy and memorable music and vocals, and an overall undeniably feel-good vibe.” - Kids Music Award.
