Add bright colored markers, lots of little wooden shapes (some with holes and some without) and glue to bring out the creativity in everyone. We hunted down the very best shapes and gave them into a very colorful necklace to wear, a bookmark to use in their books, or just a cute shape to hold. Squeals of "elephant" were heard at one point. Many of the younger kids did great stringing their shapes on the plastic cord (of course someone had to hold on to be sure the shapes did not fall off the other end!) I have lots of the wood pieces left over so am already dreaming up projects on how to use them. If you have any ideas, let me know and I'll add them to my list.
Maybe we were a little more relaxed this week. Summer is winding down and some of the kids are now back in school so a much smaller group attended. Two of the group came wearing their custom made "art aprons." Finally no tickets were needed to get into the room.
Thanks to the Wells Branch Community Library and our wonderful donors for making this program possible for the community.
