McCracken County Cooperative Extension Hosts First StoryWalk for Kids

PADUCAH, Ky., May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The McCracken County Cooperative Extension held its first-ever StoryWalk activity day Friday, April 28, welcoming over 50 children and their families to the fun-filled event.

The walk consisted of interactive, walk-through activity stations, each featuring a page from the children's book "Construction," by Sally Sutton.

Dozens of children ages 2 to 5 explored construction-themed stations, played with Legos, colored activity pages, ate "dirt" pudding snacks, and each received a copy of the featured book to take home with them.

"This was our first, and certainly not last, StoryWalk day, and it was a blast," said Denise Wooley, county agent for the extension's Family & Consumer Sciences department.

"We were thrilled with the turnout of community members, and the kids really had a great time. Part of our job here is to nurture families and promote healthy homes and communities, and we hope this event was truly an extension of that."

The McCracken County Cooperative Extension hosts community events, clubs and workshops weekly. More information about upcoming events can be found at www.mccrackenextension.org/events.
