Sunday stories / islandborn

Sunday, October 4, 2020
Starting at 11:30am

This Sunday, we will continue to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month and will be reading “Islandborn” by Junot Díaz and Leo Espinosa​, and making our own little island using a paper plate, some paint, and some sparkle!

To paint along, you will need to following art supplies:
-A white paper dinner plate, nice and big to make sure you can fit all the details of your island
-A rainbow of tempra or finger paint
-A paint brush
-A Glue stick
-Some bright colored bangles or sparkles, or any other media you would like to add of your own!
-Paper towels/ baby wipes
-A space where you can get a little messy

Make sure to share pictures of your final projects on MOCA’s facebook page, share them with us by tagging us on instagram @mocanomi or email them to [email protected] . We can’t wait to see all your islands!


Tune in on the first Sunday of every month to MOCA’s virtual Sunday Stories. A live storytime for children ages 1–5 followed by a DIY early childhood art project. To support MOCA’s free programming, please consider becoming a member today!
