SNOW Much Fun at Family Place Workshops!

Brrrrrr! Baby, it's COLD outside! It's the perfect day to spend indoors with good friends, neat toys, great books, and..... shaving cream?!? Yes, it's true! At this morning's Family Place Workshop (the first of four January sessions), we met new friends and played with old pals. We sang, danced, and on this frigid morning, we examined how some animals cope with chilly winter weather as we read Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit: A Book of Changing Seasons by Il Sung Na. In this book's enticing illustrations, we noticed the snow rabbit's fur is brown in spring, summer, and fall, yet it changes to a wintry white this time of year, so we planned to paint our little brown bunnies to match... but Miss Katie (oops! "forgot") to bring the white paint to Family Place! Luckily, two volunteers mixed equal parts shaving cream and school glue to create a cool white puffy paint! We had a TERRIFIC time painting with this amazing concoction! Check out these photos:

Our next Family Place Workshop is next Wednesday, January 11th. Call 207-0764 to Register! See you at the library!
xoxo, Miss Katie
