Kinder Gardens: June 2017

My library recently acquired four garden beds for our community. I collaborated with my assistant director, who is a HUGE gardener, about this program.

I thought it would be appropriate to have program allowing our tiny patrons an opportunity to garden.

I structured this program to have a mini storytime (think 10 minutes) followed by garden activities.

This was my set-up for the first Kinder Gardens:

Kinder Gardens, June 21

We then moved outside:

We had the children plant seeds and plants:

Miss Briony’s Bubble Party

We decided to change some things up at my library this year. Instead of having six performers, we opted to do some big programming ourselves. One of these programs was Miss Briony’s Bubble Party. Not going to lie…..I had some major anxiety leading up to it. However, it went wonderfully well!

I knew I was going to have a large turnout. I decided to create several stations to help split up the crowd.

Station 1: Bubble Mania!

We have our own bubble machine, but I knew we would need a professional grade bubble machine. Luckily, I found a machine to rent and used it in conjunction with our bubble machine. This obviously was a favorite spot for the kids. They loved being bathed in bubbles.

19429912_1306755519373492_990875580202435406_n.jpg

Station 2: Wand Art

I really liked the idea of the kids being able to blow their own bubble art. I found this idea here. The kids seemed to enjoy it. However, it was a bit too windy for them to really get the artwork going. Most kids ended up smearing the colored bubbles on to their papers.

Station 3: Bubble Art

I really thought this station was going to be the least exciting for the kids. I was wrong. I was not in touch with my inner 3-year-old, and I forgot how much kids enjoy blowing bubbles in liquid with straws. Found this project at this website. We did modify this project and did not place the papers on top of bubbles. The wind was too strong.

Station 4: Whisking Bubbles

I really wanted a station where little hands could easily control their “bubbles.” I found this idea of whisking bubbles. Super easy to recreate if you need to refill the station. Surprisingly, this was also a big hit with the older kids.

Station 5: Free For All

I ended up creating our own bubble solution for the free for all. I figured I would get more solution than buying from the store. My research also indicated that making your own bubble solution=stronger bubbles. The big key with making your bubble solution is allowing it to sit overnight at the bare minimum.

The kids were able to make bubbles using their own hands, try out random utensils to make different bubbles, and make giant bubbles. I had a super awesome volunteer who made these wands for me. We were able to save 98% of them.

Body and Senses Storytime

I’m trying a different format for the website. We will see how much I like it. This was my first storytime for our summer reading program. I did it specifically for our Picnic Storytime.

Introduction Tickle the Sun

Tickle the Sun.
Tickle your toes.
Clap your hands
And tickle your nose.
Reach up high.
Reach down low.
Turn around,
And say hello!

Mr. Potato Head, What Do You Need?
by Shawn Wolf

Mr. Potato Head, how will you see?
I’ll give you some eyes so you can see me.

Mr. Potato Head, how will you smell?
I’ll give you a nose so you can smell well.

Mr. Potato Head, how will you taste?

I’ll give you a mouth so you can eat cake.

Mr. Potato Head, how will you hear?

I’ll give you some ears so you’ll know when I’m near.

Mr. Potato Head, how will you touch?

I’ll give you some hands so you can feel much.

Mr. Potato Head, your head looks so bare.

Mr. Potato Head, how will you run?

I’ll give you some feet so you can have fun.

Book: I Am A Star by Jean Marzollo

I only read a few pages here and there of this book. It was great introduction to my science portion of this section.

Song: I printed off three different pictures of actual stars, and I briefly talked about how blue was the hottest star while red was the coldest.

I finished with this action rhyme:

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom:
Zoom Zoom Zoom
We’re going to the moon

We’re going to the moon
If you want to take the trip
Climb aboard my rocket ship
Zoom Zoom Zoom
We’re going to the moon

My second rhyme was Jack and Jill. I wanted to do something different and decided to take a “safety” approach to this rhyme.

Introduction of the Rhyme: Jack and Jill
Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

Action Rhyme:
Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. (Make climbing motions)
Jack fell down and broke his crown, (Fall to the floor)
And Jill came tumbling after. (roll hands)

Oh please put me to bed
Put bandage on my head.

I had a volunteer make me some flannels, but I decided to use real band-aids instead for this song.

Activity: Safe Vs Not Safe

I thought this would be fairly simply activity board to create. Surprisingly, I had to dig around to find some pictures that illustrated safe and not safe activities for kids. Good ole Arthur came through for me.

I would hold up the picture and ask the kids if the activity was safe or not safe.

Song: No More Monkeys by Asheba.

I busted out the parachute and some puppets for this activity. We threw the puppets on the parachute, and the kids had to keep the puppets on the parachute. The final 30 seconds the goal was to get the puppets off parachute. The kids LOVED this activity.

Craft: Doctor’s Bag

American Girl: Earth Day

Our one and only American Girl program for spring happened to land on Earth Day. I felt that it was only appropriate to do a Modern Girl session by upcycling crafts that I already had around the children’s department. You can find a TON of activities to do for this kind of program. I had to limit myself to four of them. This program was also very loosely structured compared to my other American Girl programs.

Our first craft: CDs/DVDs
Supply cost: $0

I wanted something other than a mobile for a CD project. Researching, I found several sites where people painted CDs with black acrylic paint and then etched a design into them.  As a library, we have a whole bin of old CDs and paint is always to be found. We used push pins as our etching tools, as I wanted the little hands to have some sort of handle on their utensil for etching. I would say to remind people that this is a time consuming project. It takes patience to etch away the black paint. I also think the older participants and adults enjoyed this activity more than my younger participants.

Second Craft: Batik Paper
Supply Cost: $0

I found this craft idea in Make Your Own Crafts: Eco-Crafts by Sally Henry and Trevor Cook. All you need is either coloring sheets or plain paper (I used scrap paper), crayons, water-based black paint, and paper towels.

My participants colored a picture of their choice or drew their own design with crayons. The trick is to really color the entire paper and to color heavily. Once they finished coloring, the kids crumbled up their papers into a tight ball and re-smoothed it out. Once it was flat again, the kids then painted over their picture with the water-based paint. We had to water down our paint because it was a tad thick. If the paint is too watery, you can mop up the excess with a towel.

We covered each picture with another piece of paper and then carefully placed the iron on top of the clean paper for a second. We would lift up the iron and press it on a new section. DO NOT IRON the paper or leave it on for too long. It will make the papers stick together. Once you have applied the heat pull apart the two papers.

This was a favorite among the participants. I actually had several adults ask to see the book, so they could get the instructions to do at home.

IMG_5200  IMG_5215.JPG

 

Third Craft: Chalkboard Tins
Supply Cost: $1.98

We had a patron who donated mini Altoids tins to our library. My co-worker originally was going to use them, but she graciously donated them to me for my program. I also had chalkboard paint.  I only needed to buy the chalk for the kids.

This was the clear winner for the kids. All they had to do was paint the inside of their tin. Ideally you would allow the tin to dry for a few hours and then paint another coat. We didn’t have that kind of time, so we would let the tins dry for about 20-30 minutes and then apply another coat. Some of the tins did have quite a bit of paint from some overenthusiastic painters, but it all worked out. Instructions can be found here.

IMG_5202

My last craft I unfortunately do not have a picture of it. One of my volunteers found wooden flowers of varying sizes. She created little baggies that contained one colored Popsicle stick, one big flower, and one little flower. The kids (really an adult) hot-glued them together.

I think the next time I do this program I would like to incorporate making dirt cups. I just was a leery of how much time I would have for everything.

American Girl: Molly McIntire (October 2016)

This was my last American Girl Program for 2016, and I really wanted to do something extra special. I brainstormed for several weeks and realized that Molly allowed me to incorporate the holidays from October-December into the program. I also was afforded the opportunity to pair with my one of my coworkers to provide a special element with her own organization.

The Set-Up:

 

 

 

The Plan:

I thought because of Molly’s father being in the military during WWII it would be perfect for my participants to write letters and draw pictures for the military overseas. My coworker runs a Book For Soldiers (but sends out to all branches of the military), and I said I would have my people write their letters/pictures and she can put them in the care packages for the Winter Holidays!

We also made up some goody bags! For majority of the year, she cannot send chocolate out, so we made sure to include chocolate.

The second part of the program was for the participants to make their own hulu skirts in honor of Molly’s own hulu skirt for Halloween. We talked about how during WWII many kids resorted to making their own costumes.

img_42671

I found instructions at this site. I kept it fairly simply. I figured since Molly’s skirt was green then our skirts should be green!

 

Snack:

I found out that kids ate doughnuts and tootsie pops during Molly’s time. We also had Apple Cider, since Molly had Apple Cider during her Halloween!
