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, 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!

X is for X-Ray!

Today at Story Time we did a little singing, writing, reading, and creating! We read the books "Open Wide! A Visit to the Dentist" by Cecile Schoberle, "Freddie Visits the Doctor" by Nicola Smee, and "Felix Feels Better" by Rosemary Wells. "Felix Feels Better" was an obvious favorite for the kiddos. A simple story really, but I think the children had giggle-bugs because they just thought the pictures were hilarious! So fun! Since I don't have the proper licensing, equipment, etc to create real x-rays, we made our own. They turned out extremely life-like!!! ;)



Teen Program today @ the Endicott Library.  4 PM
