If you follow this blog, you’ve probably been wondering why we haven’t had many posts lately. I was away on holidays, but now I’m back and ready to throw myself into lots of fun things to get ready for summer at the library.
As you can see, our new bulletin board in the children’s area has a clue to what’s coming this summer……will it be a fish theme?…a reading theme?…a school theme??? You’ll have to wait a little longer to find out!
I found a fun way to use up an old discarded book. I made sure to find one with thicker pages (and you’ll want to check for content on the pages beforehand, if you do this craft.) I drew outlines of fun little fish and then cut them out of each page. I decided to use watercolour paints so that the words would still show through and the fish would look sort of multicolour.
It was easy and the permanent marker didn’t run when I applied the watercolour paints. You could make these into a pretty summery wreath (try butterflies or dragonflies to make this really fun) by attaching them to a paper circle and stapling them on.
Summer is fast approaching and there will be plenty of fun things for the kids to do. Keep watching for the summer calendar, which will be out sometime in June. Until then….stop by and see what’s going on at the library! There’s always something great going on!
