After School Program 4-16-14

Another great clean up day for our After School Program this week! So blessed that the rain let up and let us get a good job done! And despite the dreary weather, we still had a decent turn out! Thanks to our awesome kiddos and to our helpers Phil Misner, Becky Anderson, and Brittany Staves. What a great crew!!!!!





Easter!

Story Time was so fun today! Lots of smiles & energy! We did a coloring activity and singing while gathering then we did an egg shaker dance. I've been meaning to do this for a looooong time, but finally got to making some egg shakers. The kids danced & danced! Then we read the books "Looking for Easter" by Dori Chaconas and "Here Comes T.Rex Cottontail" by Lois G. Grambling. Then we did a spin on an egg hunt and the kiddos searched the library for colored, paper eggs. After they found all 72 of them, we sat in our chairs and counted what they found. Then each kiddo glued their eggs into their basket. What a fun day......and without sugary treats stuffed in eggs!

Easter Eggs!

We were all about Easter Eggs today at Story Time! Each child colored their own giant Easter Egg then we had a snack and sat down to read. We read the books "Easter Egg Hunt" by Molly Kempf and "Pooh's Easter Egg Hunt" by Isabel Gaines. And instead of reading more books, we had Roxanna's friend, Selena, meet the children, enjoy a treat from the kids, and do a dancing trick. Then we got a little messy/sticky as we made some fun yarn eggs. More pictures will be posted after they dry and we can remove the balloons. Fun stuff!!!


Beautiful Selena doing her dancing trick.  :o)





These silly kids had spider webs drawn on the back of their Egg pictures and, of course, wanted to take a picture.

Z is for Zebra!

We have finished our alphabet at Story Time already! So we'll move on to some spring themes in the next couple of weeks. The kiddos today certainly have the letter Z down! We read the books "Z is for Moose" by Kelly Bingham and "Appaloosa Zebra" by Jessie Haas. Then we read "Z is for Moose" again because the kids loved it so much! Then we made some super fun Z-zebras. Lots of gluing and sticky fingers...but they turned out incredibly cute!

Y is for Yacht!

Ok, Ok...so the children didn't really know what yachts were and finding children's books on yachts....well, impossible. So, it kind of became a Y is for Yacht/Ship/Boat day. Whatever works! We read the books "Sheep on a Ship" by Nancy Shaw, "Mr. Putter & Tabby Clear the Decks" by Cynthia Rylant, and "Sailor Taylor Sets Sail" by David F. Marx. Then we used a bunch of different shapes to create our own ships. We also did some reading with Roxanna and a few special dog tricks. :)









Teen Program 3-14-14

Last week we had some great Teens come craft a picture frame using colorful
patterned tape. They were able to embellish the frame with stickers,
buttons, and flowers for a unique magnetic picture display. We had some very creative finished projects and these Teens had a good time! Thanks Nichole from Whitman County Library for helping out!
