One little flower growing just for you.

It rained us out of the garden on this day, so we were stuck inside. However, it made for the perfect opportunity to paint rocks for our gardens. Painting rocks has been a HUGE hit for our library. Our adult librarian has provided several sessions for adults. We have received numerous requests for rock painting for kids and teens.
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:

Our grand finale was releasing ladybugs to help our plants:
