Stepping up to kindergarten is a big change in the life of a 5-year-old. It means longer school days, a new school, new friends and teachers, and bumping elbows with the “graders.”

As the excitement and butterflies build, kindergarteners need a little help and a little distraction.

The Mukilteo Library is offering a story and activity time just for this group at 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

Kids can sit still for stories, run around playing games and do some craft projects geared just for their age. Snack time is included too.

The Mukilteo Library is at 4675 Harbour Pointe Blvd. Register online at www.sno-isle.org by 7 p.m. Wednesday. or call 425-493-8202.
