My summer volunteering at the library really helped me get over the nerves for this event (and many of the small guests were children who had come to see our Readers’ Theater performances this summer). Although, I will admit, I did not expect anything like that number of people. Luckily, I catered for twice that many.
Imagination Station – cave painting wall (25 feet of brown butcher paper crinkled up and stapled to the wall and buckets of sidewalk chalk).
Creation Station – tables flat on the floor with coloring pages, mazes, dinosaur cut outs, crayons and glue sticks.
Excavation Station – a cave made out of a beach cabana tent covered in rock print flannel with a plastic box of sand. They had to excavate a colored rock to win a prize.
Corporation Station – The Book Carriage & Coffee Shop handled the book sales (thank you so much, ladies!)
- Pterodactyl Toes (boneless chicken wings)
- Boulders (donut holes)
- Sticks & Stones (pretzel sticks and cheese balls)
- Vegetation (veggie tray)
- Dino Juice (Sprite and apple juice)
Having it at the library was fantastic. If you haven't visited your local library lately, please do. Introduce yourself to the children's librarian(s), visit storytime, go to the children's events. You'll be amazed at the education you can get!
