Family Morning

At RaRa and Apollo Family Morning, together we will look for answers to many exciting questions. We’ll listen to fun stories, do crafts, play games and hunt for treasures among the shelves of the Apollo bookstore. Children collect stamps while solving the puzzles. Our Family Mornings get people interested in reading, teach them how to make things, encourage them to explore and develop their creativity and independent thinking!

There are activities for children and adults, but the Family Morning is most fun for 5-12 year olds. Come and go at a time that suits you.

“We’re raising the most distracted generation in the history of the world,” said reading advocate Jim Trelease. The rise of smart TV and information overload is having more impact on children’s development than we would like to admit. That’s why making friends with books from the ground up is key to shaping a child’s development!

Learning to read is one of the most important goals of the first years of school, although the foundation for this starts much earlier. Unfortunately, children read less and less in their leisure time, and reading is often perceived as a nursery or school activity that is more of a chore than a pleasure. But reading can be exciting and fun! So what alternatives can be offered to get children away from glowing screens and into real people and books?

Children find interest and satisfaction through play, crafts and new activities. Family Mornings take place once a month, so that children can have a fun and stimulating time with their parents and meet exciting guests. In the past, the children have been visited by a therapy dog and a writer-turned-policeman.
