These germs are not for sharing!

It's cold and flu season! At Storytime this morning, we read stories about getting sick and preventing the spread of GERMS - yuck!

After we read these stories and played "Germ-y Pokey", we created these original works of art, titled "Spreading Germs". Since we can't actually see the germs on our hands, we blew paint drops through straws to represent what our imagined germs must look like. Check out how easily these "germs" are spread:

Miss Katie's completed painting was hung above the library's bathroom sink to remind us to wash our hands to prevent the spread of these creepy germs! You can do this at home too! And, remember to use your coughing and sneezing elbows, and WASH THOSE HANDS!

Have a terrific weekend! See you on Monday, November 7th at 11:30 am for Storytime! All ages welcome! No registration necessary for Monday/Friday storytimes!

xoxo Miss Katie
