storywalkThis month may be the last of the good weather this year so get outside and get fit by participating in our Story Walk. The walking story will be posted in the Huntington Park between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday. In addition to enhancing literacy and fitness, the Story Walk is simply a fun activity that’s perfect for 3-to-7-year-olds and their parents. After the story is read, there’s an additional opportunity to practice your numbers with a scavenger hunt through the pages of the book. If you can find the exercises in the correct order, you’ll be rewarded with a miniature Frisbee compliments of Get Fit Otsego.
