All month long, we will be collecting new pajamas (all sizes) to donate to local organizations so that their clients can be warm and cozy this winter, too. Find your local drop-off point, or the place to mail them, on our Padlet.

Then close out “Pajamuary” with a Pajama Weekend celebration! Feel free to join us for any or all of these! Recommended for ages 1-6.
