Young children and their parents had a blast with the O2B Kids Morning Magic team during an outreach program held Friday at Library Partnership.

The children enjoyed games and activities, including a puppet show, songs, arts and crafts, and movement activities. Katie Allen, director of Morning Magic, said the activities promote language skills, auditory awareness, fine and gross motor skills, creative thinking, and a parent-and-child relationship.

She said Morning Magic is a traditional O2B Kids program that is being developed as a pilot outreach program offered at resource centers, libraries and community events.
