Family Fun Night planned on Friday at Kids Cottage

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society and Kids Cottage will co-present a Family Fun Night on Friday, Aug. 15, from 6 to 10 p.m., at Kids Cottage, 35448 Wolfeneck Road, Rehoboth Beach.

The evening will include screenings of popular children’s films from Scholastic Publishing, along with a variety of crafts and film-inspired activities. Children will be supervised by employees of Kids Cottage of Rehoboth and Rehoboth Beach Film Society.

The theme is friendship, feelings and problem-solving. The short stories to be screened are “Bink and Gollie” (featuring two friends who find it hard to agree on anything); “Each Kindness” (a teacher shows how even small acts of kindness can change the world); “I Want My Hat Back” (presenting Bear, who can’t find his hat until another animal helps him remember where it might be); “Blackout” (during a power outage a young boy finds out how much fun not normal can be) and “Chrysanthemum” (a little mouse thinks her name is perfect until she starts school and all the kids make fun of her).

The films are being provided courtesy of Weston Woods, a division of Scholastic Corporation. The cost is $10 per family, and pre-registration is required. To register, call Kids Cottage at (302) 644-7690.
