Kick off summer with a morning of family fun!!! Race tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Recreation Desk at the Community Center or from any Creative Play Place Board Member. Ducks “race” to the finish line for fabulous prizes: five $100 prizes (ducks placing first through fifth), Saint Peter Family Pool Passes, restaurant gift cards, summer fun baskets, toys, books, much more! Stay after the race to play games and jump around in the bounce house.
You need not be present to win. Proceeds from this fundraiser help keep the Creative Play Place open and free for all! Rain cancels the event but names will be drawn for prizes and winners notified.
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 March 19, 2016. 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 evening out, an evening in, child-free chores or errands, really whatever you can imagine!? And know that every dollar we raise goes directly to the Creative Play Place, keeping it FREE for everyone to enjoy!
Feel free to contact us with questions.
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!
