Volusia Mall is proud to introduce Volusia KIDS, a new monthly kids club taking place at the Play Area by JCPenney. The club will be held every third Thursday of the month from 9:30am – 10:30am, and will include themed stories and activities.
“We’re so excited to bring this new club to the mall,” said Kristina Circelli, Marketing Director for the Volusia Mall. “Our goal is to combine education and fun through storytime and hands-on activities that are perfect for kids and their parents.”
Each month, Volusia KIDS will start with storytime and then follow with related arts and crafts, presentations, and much more, depending on the monthly theme. The mall’s kickoff event is Thursday, April 19th, with the theme of “Mother Nature.” The event will include a reading of The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister, a live animal presentation by the Lyonia Environmental Center, arts and crafts with Macaroni Kids, coloring, and more.
“We partnered with Books-A-Million to make sure we always have a fun and engaging book – or books! – to read, with extra copies on hand if parents want to bring the book home,” continued Circelli. “Then we partner with the community based on each monthly theme, from local law enforcement and health organizations to Macaroni Kids and Volusia County schools. The opportunities are virtually endless for what we can do and what we can offer to the community.”
