YMCA of Long Island & Stew Leonard III Children’s Charities Announce Water Wise Water Safety Kids Art Contest
Partnership Focuses on Promoting Water Safety Awareness Ahead of Swim Season
The YMCA of Long Island announced today that it has partnered with Stew Leonard III Children’s Charities, Inc. to launch the inaugural Water Wise Water Safety Kids Art Contest to help make children more aware of the importance of water safety. Children age 12 and under are encouraged to use this unique opportunity to express their artistic interpretations of water safety and share their own tips for peers. Both organizations strive to educate and engage local communities about the importance of being a responsible swimmer, and this joint venture is the latest initiative aimed at keeping Long Islanders safe this summer.
Earth Day is a day to celebrate our love for our one and only planet and talk about ways to protect it in our community.
Here on Long Island there is a lot of fun events happening and we have a great list of places you can go to celebrate Earth Day this year.
*Please note we have listed the events from public sites and changes can occur at any time. Please check the particular location’s website/ social media pages for any updates regarding weather or date/time changes ahead of your arrival*
We painted ice blocks with watercolor paints and the result is beautiful!
This can be a very therapeutic and relaxing art activity to do with your kids. One of my favorites to do before bed. Obviously, the ice will melt make sure the dish you do this activity in is deep enough that the melted ice water does not overflow all over your table. I discard the ice and water in the bathtub and then rinse well so the colors don’t end up on my tub floor.
