This year, the Building for Kids is spending the month of December exploring celebrations from around the world!
We’re offering four different small group programs as well as a take-home family activity kit that allows your family to travel the world without leaving the Fox Valley. Additionally, through virtual programming, we will talk to members of our local community about the ways they celebrate different holidays throughout the month of December.
