Are you looking for some indoor fun to beat the cold? Pick up one of our great Storytime Kits at the Saint Peter Public Library! Storytime Kits are packed full of books and activities to help you stave off cabin fever! Kits are available in English or Spanish and can be checked out for one week!
We are so excited to announce that this Friday, December 11, 2015, Saint Peter author, Sandy Walsh will join us to read her first book titled “Gift of the Monkey Pajamas.” She will be reading in the Saint Peter Community Center Gym at 10 a.m. Books will be available for purchase and Sandy is happy to sign them, too! What a great Christmas gift!
If you can’t make it (or you just love it so much you want to hear it again!) she will also be making an appearance in January at the Saint Peter Public Library. Hope to see you Friday!

The Creative Play Place now has an Amazon Wish List! As you are doing your holiday shopping, check out our list and see if there is anything you’d like to add as a gift to the CPP. Some of our toys are beginning to show that they have been loved for the last 8 years and could use some freshening up. Thanks so much for your support!

We’re excited to share a fun event with you. The Creative Play Place is hosting drop-off childcare at the Saint Peter Community Center on Saturday, December 5, 2015. Use this form to make your reservation!
Here’s some more information:
- Minimum age of children is 18 months.
- Drop off begins at 5:30 p.m. All children must be picked up by 9:30 p.m.
- Childcare will be provided by Gustavus Adolphus College student volunteers and Creative Play Place board members.
- The cost is $3.00 per hour, per child. All proceeds benefit the Creative Play Place!
We hope this will be a fundraiser that’s helpful for our community. Who doesn’t need a Saturday night without the kids around, especially in December? Use the time to shop for gifts, go out for dinner, attend a concert, or just relax at home. And know that every dollar we raise goes directly to the Creative Play Place, keeping it FREE for everyone to enjoy!
