October was a busy month for Kids Club


The Canyon Lake Kids Club schedule was packed with activities last month. The club celebrated Fire Prevention week with a special visitor on Oct. 11. Captain Brent Carter of Canyon Lake Fire Station 60 taught the children about fire safety and how to “stop, drop and roll.”

The club celebrated National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month by collecting donations for Animal Friends of the Valleys. They also participate in the Huey’s Heroes Reading Program by reading books to the dogs in the shelter.

On Oct 9, the kids learned about Columbus Day and the letter “P.”

Yoga instructor Dani Martin visited the club and taught the children about yoga on Oct. 16.

On Oct. 18, the club visited a local pumpkin patch, where they visited with the animals, played in the corn boxes and rode a wagon into the field to pick out pumpkins.

The kids learned about the letter “T,” number six and color purple on Oct. 23. Ms. Christie also read a Halloween book and the children crafted cotton ball ghosts. On Oct. 25, the kids made paper bag Halloween costumes.
